Christina Applegate Ready to Film ‘Anchorman 3’

Christina Applegate on the set of 'Anchorman 2'Christina Applegate wants to start work on Anchorman 3.

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."
