Kanye West is reportedly set to appear in the sequel to the hit comedy Anchorman.

The movie, Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due for release later this year and Kanye West was yesterday spotted on the set of the movie, prompting sources to suggest that the rapper will appear in a cameo role. Also filming scenes yesterday were 30 Rock actress Tina Fey and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler. E! suggests the all-star line up could be set to appear in a follow up to the famous fight scene from the first Anchorman movie. Sacha Baron Cohen has also been seen filming scenes for the movie, which will see the return of Will Ferrel as Ron Burgundy as well as Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and Steve Carell.

Released in 2004, the original Anchorman was a parody of a '70s TV newsroom written by Ferrell and director Adam McKay. The pair have also teamed up to write the sequel, which is slated for release on December 20.

Speaking last year, director McKay revealed a few teasers about the sequel's plot, saying: "I don't want to give away too much, but I'll just give a couple of ideas that we've kicked around. Keep in mind we're still writing the story, but I'll say one phrase for you: custody battle. I'll give you that. I'll give you another one: bowling for dollars.

Meanwhile, Kanye West recently played a brand new song called 'I Am A God' at the Met Gala in New York.
The rapper performed the first taster of his forthcoming new album at the annual fashion event, having recently posted a mysterious tweet which read: "June Eighteen." The rapper updated his Twitter account with the message, leading fans to speculate that June 18 could see the rapper release new material. Just before the tweet it was reported that Kanye has finished recording his new album, the follow-up to 2010's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.
