Harrison Ford's role in "Anchorman 2" will be opposite of Will Ferrell's role as Ron Burgundy. Other stars rumored to be included in the film are John C. Reilly, James Mardsen, Kristen Wiig, Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, Luke Wilson, David Koechner and Dylan Baker.

It's unclear exactly how Harrison Ford's role in "Anchorman 2" will affect the dynamic of the movie. It's also unclear exactly what character Harrison Ford will play and how he'll interact with the other characters.

The writers, producers and cast members affiliated with the movie have closely guarded the "Anchorman 2" plot. Judd Apatow, the producer of the film, recently spoke at length about the secrecy surrounding the film. "Adam McKay and Will Ferrell wrote it, Adam McKay directs it and they came up with the most hilarious script," Apatow said in an interview with MTV News.

"We read it a few weeks ago and people were laughing so hard that at about 40 minutes in we all just ran out of gas. It was hard to read the whole thing because we got tired [from laughing]," he added.

Judd Apatow said that the "Anchorman 2" plot is more secret than the next Star Wars movie in addition to a variety of other jokes he told during a long interview with MTV. The comment was made several days before Harrison Ford was reported to be involved in the film. Harrison Ford is also rumored to be involved in the upcoming Star Wars movie "Star Wars: Episode VII."

"Now, we're getting unofficial word that Harrison Ford has signed-on to reprise his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode 7 - lending credence to hopes that the film will directly continue storylines from the prior trilogy - while introducing new characters too," reports Screen Rant. That means if Screen Rants reports are true, several other high-profile actors and actresses from the original Star Wars will return to reprise their roles as well.

Although it's still unclear exactly how Harrison Ford's new role in "Anchorman 2" and Star Wars will affect the plot of the movies, it appears that the iconic actor has plenty in store for fans.
