The Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues actress - who plays sexy newsreader Veronica Corningstone in the film series - is upset it took so long to get a sequel made to the original 2004 film, and can't wait to start on another installment. “I don't want to wait nine years. I would do [another] one next year if I could,” she said.

Meanwhile Steve Carrell - who stars as part of the fictional Channel 4 news team in the movie alongside Christina, Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell and David Koechner - says they shot a huge musical number for the movie, but it was later left out from the final cut: “There was an entire musical number that we spent a week shooting It was cut from the final movie. It was very good and we all thought, 'Boy, this is gonna be a real cornerstone of this entire thing,' but I guess it just took a left turn.”

Box Office Breakdown: Expendables Team Up Against Julia Roberts

The Expendables

For some people, eating, praying and loving is the way to go. For others, shooting and fighting is the preferred course of action.

, directed and co-written by Sylvester Stallone, overpowered the competition this weekend with a $34.8 million finish.
