According to the NY Post, Christina Applegate 'will be back' for ANCHORMAN II, the sequel to Will Ferrell's blockbuster comedy. Film producer Judd Apatow confirmed that the actress will return as Veronica Corningstone, if negotiations "go to plan." "She will be back!" he told E! Online at the Critics Choice TV Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Apatow added that he plans to fill the movie with celebrity cameo appearances. "I know they want to do a lot of that. I just don't know who they're specifically thinking about."
