Kanye West 'Hilarious In Anchorman 2'
Director praises rapper Yeezy for his comedy talents in cameo role...
The director of Kanye West for his performance in a cameo spot in the movie.
Speaking to MTV News, Adam McKay said the rapper had impressed co-stars and crew with his comic talents.
"He was great, and he was funny. He came up with a couple good lines on his own.
"We did our usual style of do the written line, and then I would throw out alternate lines and we'd improvise. He was completely cool and game."
And McKay revealed that Yeezy enjoyed the experience so much that he decided to hang around once he'd finished his part.
"He even showed up for an extra quarter of a day where he had no speaking lines," McKay said. "He was just kind of in the group fight sequence, and he was having so much fun that he came back to do that."
Fellow rapper Drake also has a role in the eagerly awaited comedy sequel - which stars Will Ferrell as a tragically chauvinist newscaster.
