Kristen Wiig, Jennifer Jason Leigh to appear in Will Ferrell-produced film
Kristen Wiig will be appearing alongside Will Ferrell in this year’s Anchorman 2, but that doesn’t mean the two former SNL cast members are done working together. Deadline reports that Wiig has been cast alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tim Robbins in Welcome to Me, a dramatic comedy that will be produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions.
The film, to be directed by Shira Piven, will star Wiig as a person suffering from dissociative personality disorder. When she wins the lottery, she spends the money on a cable access talk show about herself.
