"Anchorman" Exhibit in DC's Newseum Opens

Gemma LaMana/MMXIII Paramount Pictures Corporation(WASHINGTON) -- Newseum, an interactive museum of news in Washington D.C., will present "Anchorman: The Exhibit," beginning Thursday, Nov. 14 and running through August 2014.

The exhibit features dozens of costumes and props from the Will Ferrell movie, including the suit worn by his character, Ron Burgundy, along with his "I'M #1" license plate, jazz flute and mustache brush.

It also takes a serious look at the chauvinism spoofed in the film and features interviews with real 1970s anchors, including Connie Chung.

Meanwhile, in other Anchorman 2 news, Ferrell, tells E! Online that Meryl Streep was once considered for a part in the sequel.

At GQ magazine's "Man of the Year" party in Los Angeles Tuesday, Ferrell told E!, "We got it on good authority that she wanted to be in the movie, but when we sussed it out it couldn't happen for one reason or another."

He added, "It might have been we threw her the part and she was like, 'Is that it? I don't want to do that!"

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters Dec. 20.
