It looks like Kanye West isn’t the only artist scheduled to make a cameo in Paramount Pictures’ Judd Apatow-directed-comedy Anchorman 2. Canadian-born rapper/actor Drake, formerly of Degrassi: The Next Generation, has been spotted filming scenes with Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate around Midtown in New York City.
The Toronto native was seen walking the streets dressed in a 70’s inspired costume, which included a pair of Adidas shell-toed sneakers, a vintage-leather Members Only jacket, tight acid-washed jeans and an afro-wig. No details regarding his role have been revealed, but he is expected to make his major film debut alongside the likes of Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Nicole Kidman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler, Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford.
With such a stellar line-up, one can only hope that Anchorman 2 can live up to the original, which released in 2004.
