It looks like Kanye West is trying his hand at acting. The soon-to-be father was spotted in Atlanta filming scenes for his cameo appearance in the Will Ferrell comedy 'Anchorman 2.'

According to Access Atlanta, Yeezy was in town shooting on a closed set that was guarded by security. The details of West's role in the film haven't been revealed, but according to a source, the 'Watch the Throne' rapper was seen filming on a rooftop with 'Anchorman' stars Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd.

West is among a list of famous celebs who will make cameo appearances in the sequel. Hollywood heavyweights like Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson and Tina Fey have shot their scenes this week.

'Anchorman 2' is the follow-up to the original comedy flick of the same name. The movie stars Ferrell as the debonair yet doofus TV newscaster Ron Burgundy.

Meanwhile, West will return to New York on May 18 to perform as a musical guest on the season finale of 'Saturday Night Live.' He's also planning to surprise us with something on June 18.
