Kanye West Shows No Mercy On ‘Anchorman 2′ Set

Rapper was photographed choking a cast member for his cameo in the comedy.

Stay classy, Kanye!

Will Ferrell and Kanye West are finally making good on their plans to collaborate. (You may recall that the actor and rapper had hoped to film a little something for the Watch the Throne tour after West sampled Ferrell on “N—as in Paris.”)

West was photographed Thursday (May 9) filming a cameo for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” a day after reports surfaced that he had been spotted on the Atlanta set. Clad in a wolf T-shirt and black leather pants and jacket, the 35-year-old used a hockey stick to put a fellow cast member into a headlock.

West is among a number of stars — including Kirsten Dunst, Jim Carrey and Tina Fey — reportedly involved in the melee being filmed in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park.

Details surrounding the plot of the highly anticipated sequel have been anything but fodder for the nightly news, shrouded in a thick blackout curtain of secrecy.

“I can’t give it away because it’s more secret than the next ‘Star Wars,’” producer Judd Apatow told MTV News back in December. “All I can say is that there are no Wookies in it. But it’s top-secret. You can’t give away the Brick jokes.”

What we do know is that stars Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate will all reprise their roles, with Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig and James Marsden signing on, as well. Whether they’ll also face off (fin off?) with a shark remains to be seen.

The film is slated for a December 20 release.
