Kanye West
had an incredible cameo in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” but it wasn’t the first time he met up with Will Ferrell.

Defamer reports that the rapper auditioned for a role in 2008’s “Semi-Pro,” in which Ferrell starred.

A video from the audition is reportedly being shopped around, and the insider says that Kanye’s acting was not good.

“This is for the role he lost to Andre Benjamin and it’s very obvious why – he’s a terrible actor,” the source told Defamer. “He’s wearing a ridiculous afro wig that he brought to the interview. He seems insecure and wooden through the whole tape…”

The source also sent a photo of Kanye wearing the afro, but the tape itself has not yet surfaced.

Perhaps his acting skills have improved over the years, otherwise Ferrell probably wouldn’t have cast him to play an MTV host in the “Anchorman 2” newscaster brawl.
