San Diegans to be cast in 'Anchorman 2'

Casting call for sequel starring Will Ferrell

SAN DIEGO - San Diegans will get a chance to "stay classy" with Ron Burgundy next weekend.

The company Central Casting will be in San Diego May 11 to look for would-be actors and actresses to appear in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," starring Will Ferrell.

Judy Bouley of Central Casting told 10News Friday that they are looking for between 150 and 300 adults between the ages of 18 and 35. However, they will be taking a look at everyone who shows up, including children. Bouley said those people will be added into Central Casting's system for possible future shoots.

"We've been working on setting up San Diego for about a month," said Bouley.

Bouley said she expects anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 people to show up for the casting call. She said it's important people go to www.centralcasting.com to make sure they bring the proper documentation.

"We want to have the full range of San Diego -- all ethnicities, all types, mostly adults," Bouley said.

Local casting agent Tina Real said anyone thinking about going to the casting call should be prepared with paperwork and a few pictures.

"Not a lot of jewelry, not a lot of makeup; just you and a nice friendly smile," Real said.

Anchorman 2's casting call is May 11, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Doubletree hotel in Mission Valley.
