Deadline reports that former "Saturday Night Live" castmember Kristen Wiig will join the cast of the upcoming "Anchorman 2" as the wife of Steve Carell's character of brain-dead weatherman Brick Tamland.

Director Adam McKay seems to be getting closer to creating, in his words, “a murderer’s row of the best day players ever...every single one-line or three-line role [will] just be someone we just love.”

"Anchorman 2" is scheduled for release Dec. 20.
