Christina Applegate will reprise her role as Veronica Corningstone in Anchorman sequel

Jun. 1, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Channel 4 News Team Assemble!

For those that were hoping to see Christina Applegate and Will Ferrell go at it again in ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, you may now rest easy, as Applegate is confirmed to reprise her role as Veronica Corningstone, the once-rival/lover of Ferrell's Ron Burgundy. 

I think it's great to see the whole cast reassembling for the flick, which is still currently being written and prepped to go before the lens under the guidance of original director Adam McKay. 

It's unclear how large or small Applegate's role will be in the sequel as McKay has hinted at the possibility of Corningstone and Burgundy being divorced and involved in a custody battle.  However, with everything still early in the game, anything could change and likely will as they progress through the script and filming begins.

Along with Ferrell and Applegate, other returning castmembers include Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, and David Koechner in their original roles.  Expect a bevy of guest stars to come flooding in once this bad boy gets fully underway. 

ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES sometime in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Christina Applegate was one of my first crushes. Seeing her every week on Married...with Children in those miniskirts, hot pants, tube tops, and daisy dukes was a huge part of my, er, development.

She is so beautiful, like others have said, one of my childhood crushes. Don't Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead is absolutely one of my guilty pleasure films.



Oh and excellent news that she's reprising her role.

Their characters being divorced kind of ruins it for me, I liked the fact that they were together. I'm still unsure of this flick. At least McKay will be back.

I'd love to see CA re-married to one of Burgundy's news team, like Champ maybe, in this movie.

I do find it weird that she would be in a rerlationship with any of the guys being that their such male Chauvinist's. I guess that's what makes it funny though.

Sweet.

I fell in love with CA from Don't tell mom the babysitter's dead. More like Don't tell mom what I used to do to that movie!! CA is extremely attractive and laid back. She isn't trying to be a sex symbol supermodel, and that makes her hotter.
