Kanye West is a busy man. Besides performing at the Met Ball earlier this week, Yeezy was also spotted in Atlanta shooting a scene for Will Ferrell’s Anchorman: The Legend Continues, the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
West was spotted filming scenes on a downtown Atlanta rooftop with returning stars Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd, a source on site tells Hollywood.com. Says our witness, “he was quite afraid of heights and required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof.”
The Anchorman 2 production has set up shop in Atlanta in the past few weeks, filming scenes in Woodruff Park and the surrounding areas — plenty of which have been captured on film by prying paparazzi eyes.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper/producer appearing in a Ferrell film only makes sense. Yeezy used dialogue from the comedian/actor’s Blades Of Glory in his The Throne hit “Ni–as In Paris.”
Stay classy, Yeezy. Check out a photo of West on the set on the next page.
