There are so many stars making random cameos in Anchorman 2, it’d probably be easier to make a list of those who weren’t hired for the job.

Even Kanye West and Drake got to hang with Ron Burgundy and the news crew, so it’s hard to imagine who would turn down a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like this.

Star Will Ferrell made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and revealed who he wasn’t able to lock down for an appearance.

“Oprah…she’s too big,” he told Kimmel, not realizing the audience thought he meant he was referring to her weight. “No! Notoriety level! I will fight every single one of you!”

Ferrell also sent a very special request to the West Wing.

“We actually tried to get Obama. But apparently that memo was actually in the White House, circulating and there were conversations like this: ‘Should we give it to him? I don’t know!’” Ferrell whispered. “‘Okay! Maybe after lunch. He seems like he’s in a good mood today. Let’s go in, wait, not a good move!’”

The offer never actually reached the President’s desk, but could you imagine how epic that cameo would’ve been?
