More 'Anchorman 2' Posters and Ron Burgundy to Host SportsCenter?

The onslaught of publicity for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues isn't slowing down. First of all, despite how much we agree with the pointless nature of most character posters, a new batch featuring some of the supporting players in the comedy sequel deserve to be highlighted, if only because Ron Burgundy's loyal friend Baxter gets his own poster, and Kristen Wiig's one-sheet is pretty funny. But that's not all. The Big Lead reports that Will Ferrell will guest host ESPN's "SportsCenter" on December 5th and says, "there will be some sort of Ron Burgundy element to telecast.” The Wrap says Ferrell will indeed appear as Burgundy, but we hope sports anchor Champ Kind (David Koechner) will stop by too. See posters below!
Here's are the new character posters for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues from IMP Awards:
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is written and directed by Adam McKay, the man behind the original 2004 comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and comedies like Step Brothers. With the 70's behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk. Also back are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) - All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York's first 24-hour news channel by storm. Paramount Pictures brings the sequel to theaters this winter on December 20th, 2013.
