Meagan Good is stepping into a different role and flexing her comedic skills in Anchorman 2. Playing Linda Jackson, a young, but tough boss, in the funny follow up to Anchorman, Good admits she’s never considered herself funny.
“I’ve always been the kid who tells the joke and everyone goes, ‘Don’t ever do that again,'” she told Essence.com. “I’ve always had an insecurity about it and it is frightening for me which is why I really wanted to do this.”
Take a look at what the 32-year-old Afro-Latina had to say about her latest role and how jumping into comedy brought her out of her shell.
Anchorman 2 debuted in the box office last Wednesday and brought in $26.8 million its opening week.
