First Kanye West, now Drake: the Canadian singer and rapper was spotted in New York this week filming scenes for the upcoming Anchorman sequel. According to HipHollywood.com, Drake sported a large afro, a red leather jacket, a gold chain and fat sideburns for his cameo. This isn’t Drake’s first go at acting, of course: the rapper starred on the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation for seven seasons before his rise as a musician.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues seems to be dipping into the rap world for celebrity cameos, as Kanye West was spotted filming scenes for the movie earlier this month in Atlanta. Along with returning cast members Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate, the next Anchorman will also feature Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Jim Carrey, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Liam Neeson, among others. It’s set for a December 20th opening.
