“You stay classy, Toronto.” That has a nice ring to it, but there’s no way Drake, who was spotted on the set of “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” on Saturday (May 18) afternoon in New York by the NY Daily News, will be allowed to steal the film’s star Will Ferrell’s signature line for the highly-anticipated sequel.
Dressed in a leather “Members Only” jacket, vintage t-shirt and jeans and topped with a huge afro bookended by ’70′s era sideburns, Drizzy was movie-shoot fresh on the streets of Manhattan, dusting off the acting chops he perfected as a castmember of “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
The Take Care MC joins fellow rap superstar Kanye West, who was seen on set last week on the movie’s Atlanta set, in the cameo-heavy follow-up to 2004’s surprise hit, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”
This is the second time this week that Drake has hopped into the hip-hop time machine. The “Started From the Bottom” rapper wore a vintage Dada outfit on the set of the “No New Friends” video shoot, a move that quickly became a trending topic on Twitter after the behind-the-scenes photograph was released on Instagram.
No word on what Drake’s role in the film will be, but from the looks of the new trailer, this second act looks like it just might live up to the first one.
