Drake Sports An Afro While Shooting ‘Anchorman 2’ In New York [Photos]

Drake was spotted shooting scenes for the upcoming comedy Anchorman 2 in New York City over the weekend.

The Canadian rapper sported an afro and era-appropriate apparel for the scenes he shot on Saturday afternoon. You can find a handful of photos of Drake as his character in the sequel embedded below.

The rapper isn’t the only musician who is expected to make a cameo in the long-awaited follow-up to director Adam McKay’s Anchorman. Kanye West was spotted wielding a hockey stick during the sequence he filmed in Atlanta last week. According to MTV News, Tina Fey, Jim Carrey, and Kirsten Dunst were also in attendance.

The cameo list for the sequel is actually quite impressive. In addition to Drake, Celebuzz claims Anchorman 2 will also feature quick appearances from Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron, John C. Reilly, Nicole Kidman, James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Will Smith, and Liam Neeson. That’s a considerable amount of talent for one movie.

Drake was joined in New York City over the weekend by a number of the sequel’s stars. The New York Daily News managed to get their hands on several set photos featuring returning players Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate. Co-star Paul Rudd shot a few scenes in the Big Apple as well.

Although behind-the-scenes photos and cameo lists are starting to emerge, very little is still known about the actual plot of Anchorman 2. Adam McKay seems interested in keeping that information under lock and key for at least a little while longer.

“I can’t give it away because it’s more secret than the next ‘Star Wars.’ 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,” producer Judd Apatow told MTV News during an interview last year.
