Another big-name Hollywood star has been added to the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" billing.

Nicole Kidman reportedly has a secret cameo in the upcoming "Anchorman" sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and the Oscar-winning actress has already shot the bit in Atlanta.

THR also reported Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson, who appeared in the original "Anchorman" as rival newscasters to Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy, will shoot small roles as well.

Rumors previously spread that Meryl Streep would be making a cameo appearance in "Anchorman 2," but Steve Carell shot those down. "When I did 'Hope Springs,' [Meryl] mentioned she was a fan and she said, 'Oh, I'd love to be in it,'" Carell, who plays Brick Tamland, told "Access Hollywood" in March. "But that's not gonna [happen] -- that's not a thing. She's actually busy -- she can't do it."

Alongside stars Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Carell, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" will also feature cameos from Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig and James Marsden.

Ford's "Anchorman" casting made headlines last month, but he isn't so sure his part will actually make the final cut. Producers Adam McKay and Judd Apatow asked Ford to take the role before they knew about his part in "Morning Glory," a 2010 film starring Rachel McAdams about a newbie television producer reviving a morning program.

"It'd be easy enough to cut out. I don't think it's critical," he told Entertainment Tonight.

The film is slated to hit theaters on Dec. 20.
