Christina Applegate ready for Anchorman 3

Christina Applegate
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 instalment.
She told "I don't want to wait nine years. I would do [another] one next year if I could."
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 music...

American comedian and film producer Jay Leggett has died at the age of 50 after collapsing following a deer hunt.

The actor passed away from natural causes at the end of the first day of deer season in his native Tomahawk, Wisconsin, on Saturday (23Nov13).

Ironically, Leggett died doing what he loved - he produced a documentary about the joys of deer hunting in 2011, titled, To the Hunt: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

Lincoln County sheriff's spokesman Mike Caylor states: "The victim had returned to the cabin from his deer stand on an ATV (all-terrain vehicle). When he got off the m...

Christina Applegate's husband Martyn LeNoble was detained and questioned by the LAPD after he took issue with a photographer trying to get photos of his daughter.

On Sunday, Applegate and LeNoble took their 2-year-old daughter to a birthday partner when LeNoble noticed an aggressive photographer.

TMZ's cameraman asked the Porno for Pyros bassist about the confrontation. LeNoble said, "I went outside to talk to him and he got physical with me ... he wouldn't back off." He then claimed he was challenged to a fight, saying the photographer told him, "Let's see what kind of man you are."

Christina Applegate's husband was detained by police on Sunday (10.13.13) after getting into a physical altercation with a paparazzo.
The 'Anchorman' actress' partner Martyn LeNoble was reportedly searched by cops in Los Angeles after getting into a row with the photographer.
The Porno for Pyros rocker's outburst came after the photographer in question allegedly tried to take pictures of Christina and their two-year-old daughter Sadie Grace at a birthday party.
Martyn claims the shutterbug instigated the physical contact, as well as threatening him and challenging him to a fist fight.

Christina Appplegate laughs about family murder

September 5th, 2013 8:41pm EDT
Jay Leno
Actress Christina Applegate had to laugh when she discovered her great-grandfather killed his brother while researching her family tree on U.S. TV show Who Do You Think You Are? - because the rest of her ancestral history was so dark and miserable.

The star and her father Robert Applegate signed up to trace their roots for the genealogy show in July (13) - but neither expected the family story to be so sad and desperate.

Researching her grandmother's side of the family, the Applegates learned all about the abuse ancestors suffered and they were both quite relieved when they discovered the...

Anchorman: The Legend Continues
The Legend Continues this December as newscaster Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) returns to the screen in Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

The first full trailer for the film was released Tuesday, showing that the San Diego news crew has moved on to the Big Apple to help usher in the era of the 24-hour news network.

Christina Applegate

Actress Christina Applegate is a married woman after exchanging vows with her fiancé Martyn Lenoble over the weekend.

As Hollywood prepared for the Oscars on Sunday night, the couple wed in front of family and friends at its home in Los Angeles on Saturday, three years after rocker LeNoble proposed, according to

The pair share a two-year-old daughter, Sadie.

She wrote, "It's been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors. I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always."

Celebrities Who Have Had Double Mastectomies

Celebrities Who Have Had Double Mastectomies
It's always shocking when a celebrity reveals he or she has battled a major health crisis. Angelina Jolie revealed in a 2012 article in The New York Times that she had a double mastectomy to prevent breast cancer.

Doctors told the actress she carried the "faulty" gene BRCA1 and had an 87 percent risk of developing the disease. Jolie's mother died at age 56 from ovarian cancer.

Christina Applegate
Christina Applegate has opened up about the emotional double mastectomy she underwent in 2008 after learning she was at a high risk of things getting much worse.

The Up All Night star was interviewed in the November issue of More magazine and she says that the news of her aggressive decision to prevent a recurrence of the disease leaked so quickly that she didn't have a chance for it to really set in right away.

"The good thing is that we got the information out," she says. "But talking about the facts of the disease, I didn't have to see what was going on with me."

Christina Applegate's fiancé has become the target of a vicious troll who is threatening to blow his head off.

Musician Martyn LeNoble has been subjected to menacing tweets from an anonymous account, prompting officials at the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to launch an investigation.

Cops served a search warrant on Twitter HQ in San Francisco, six days after the horrifying messages emerged on September 20th. The profile has since been deleted, according to

TV's Most Hilarious Ladies

This season’s hit comedies seem to be funnier than ever, and we think it is due to all the entertaining ladies who capture the audience’s attention, have us falling off our seats laughing and keep us tuning in each week for more. Here’s our list of the biggest riots on TV:

Eliza Coupe may not be as recognizable as most of the other ladies on our list but once you see her on Happy Endings, you will never forget her face.

'Anchorman 2' News: Christina Applegate Is Back, Baby!

June 1st, 2012 1:49pm EDT
Christina Applegate

Ever since the first teaser for "Anchorman 2" dropped like a comedy A-bomb on the world two weeks ago, fans have been asking one question: Whither Veronica Corningstone? Okay, so most of them weren't using the word "whither," but still, while it was great to see Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner in their polyester suits again, the absence of Christina Applegate was glaring.

Well, good news: According to Celebuzz, Applegate's representatives have confirmed that she will indeed be returning as the number one woman in broadcast news, Veronica Corningstone. 


'Anchorman 2' Teaser Trailers Hit The Web

May 21st, 2012 3:09pm EDT
The Channel 4 news team is back! Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Champ Kind (David Koechner), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) have set the stage for the 2013 return of Anchorman in a pair of funny teaser trailers.

No word on if Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) will return, as she's nowhere to be seen. In fact, no footage from the film is in the trailers - just some hilarious dialogue as part of the film's announcement.

While the first teaser is being aired before The Dictator, a second has already hit the web with alternate lines - we wouldn't be surpr...

Reflecting With The Ladies Of 'In Plain Sight'

April 20th, 2012 12:20pm EDT
In Plain Sight
As USA's In Plain Sight comes to an end, I joined the cast members at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles to celebrate the series.

Before a panel discussion, stars Mary McCormack (U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon) and Rachel Boston (Det. Abigail Chaffee), as well as recurring actresses Tangie Ambrose (U.S. Marshal Delia Parmalee) and Ali Marsh (Dr. Shelley Finkel), joined me to talk about what they'll take away from being a part of the hit original series and their favorite memories.

"It's bittersweet," said McCormack, who was nominated for a Prism Award in 2009 for her performance as Ma...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'The Proposals'

April 13th, 2012 3:27pm EDT
Up All Night
When I first saw in the previews for the "Up All Night" season finale that Kevin returns to propose to Ava, which prompts Chris to RE-propose to Reagan, I let out an audible groan. However, by the end of "The Proposals," I may have let out an audible sniffle or two. And there may have been something in my eye, causing it to leak fluid. Let's get this straight: I WAS NOT CRYING. But I will admit that, for a somewhat flawed episode, it managed to end on a truly sweet note that acted as an antidote to my elevated levels of cynicism.

When Chris and Reagan recount their engagement story to ...

Luke Wilson Enthusiastic For Armless 'Anchorman' Return

April 9th, 2012 12:11pm EDT
Luke Wilson
Luke Wilson is eager to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy sequel, despite his character losing both arms in the original movie.

Will Ferrell recently confirmed his obnoxious newsman character will be returning to the big screen for a follow-up after several years of financial wrangling with bosses at the 2004 hit's studio Paramount Pictures.

The main cast, including Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate, are all expected to return, and Wilson has also made it known he is eager to rejoin the cast - even though his Anchorman alter ego ...

It's Official! There Will Be An 'Anchorman' Sequel (Video)

March 29th, 2012 9:19am EDT
Will Ferrell has delighted "Anchorman" fans by confirming his comedy creation Ron Burgundy will be back for a second movie outing.

A follow-up to 2004 cult comedy "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy," which starred Ferrell as an obnoxious 1970s newsman, has long been mooted, but Ferrell has now revealed he is working on a sequel.

The actor appeared in character as Burgundy during an appearance on Conan O'Brien's TV talk show on Wednesday to announce the news to fans.

He said, "As of 09:00 Mountain Time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Baby Fever'

March 16th, 2012 11:53am EDT
Up All Night
Just as I was starting to think that Will Arnett might never again be objectified for my viewing pleasure, the "Up All Night" writers came to the rescue! This week, we got to see Chris in the tub, in a towel and in his undies. And even though it was only a C-grade episode as a whole, I'm grading this one on a curve since it featured Arnett 1) in various states of undress and 2) uttering a classic Gob-ism.

The problem with this episode was that each of the three main characters had a separate storyline, and while there were times when they meshed to make some good moments (Chris and Reaga...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Couple Friends'

March 12th, 2012 7:23am EDT
Up All Night
Although “Up All Night” took a bit of a wrong turn with last week’s “New Boss,” it quickly got back on track with this Thursday's "Couple Friends," which finds the Brinkleys on the hunt for that titular twosome they can actually tolerate.

It's established in the cold open (in which Reagan and Chris futilely try to pump themselves up to go dubstepping with some hipster pals) that the Brinkleys are in desperate need of another age-appropriate couple to hang out with. Obviously, Gene and Terry are not an option. But it's while at that very boring duo's house for a neighborhood crime watch ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Boss'

March 2nd, 2012 1:04pm EST
Up All Night
After a string of really well-written episodes (including last week’s “First Birthday,” which must have been so good that I forgot to recap it), “Up All Night” hit a snag with last night’s “New Boss.” While there were some funny moments – mostly thanks to Will Arnett’s awkward attempts at machismo – the story was all over the place and never managed to really go anywhere.

The first red flag signaling that this is a poorly scripted episode is the announcement that Kevin (Jason Lee) moved to Idaho for a new job – an important tidbit that was revealed so matter-of-factly that I started to w...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Travel Day'

February 17th, 2012 2:36pm EST
Up All Night
People, “Up All Night” has definitely found a groove. When it first joined NBC’s Thursday night lineup, I was a little cranky about it because it came at the expense of “Community.” And although I still miss “Community” something fierce, I’ve stopped expecting “Up All Night” to fill that show’s ridiculously big clown shoes, and just focus on its solid writing, cute-as-hell baby and charismatic cast. And then of course there’s Will Arnett. I’ve gone back and forth on this issue, but I think I’ve finally made a decision: he’s sexier than Joel McHale. There, I’ve said it. It’s official. Is h...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Day After Valentine's Day'

February 10th, 2012 11:56am EST
Up All Night
I’m starting to notice something about “Up All Night.” None of the plots are terribly clever, yet it manages to be inoffensive at worst and laugh-out-loud funny at best. How does that work? Is it great writing, or is it the actors who bring that writing to life? After seeing last night’s episode, I’m still not completely sure. Even though the writers came up with one of this series’ most clichéd plots, there were a lot of really well-written moments and hilarious quotes. And Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Jason Lee did a fantastic job of bringing the funny, making this ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Preschool Auction'

February 3rd, 2012 1:02pm EST
Up All Night
“Up All Night” continued its trend of casting great guest stars (Molly Shannon, Megan Mullally and, coming soon, The Fonz!) this week by bringing Dean Winters in to play Chris’s competitive brother, Casey. Since Will Arnett is especially delightful in “Look at me, baby, I’m a real man” mode, giving Chris a brother who can play that role just as well, while feeding Chris’s insecurities was a great move by the show’s writers.

In addition to sibling rivalry, “Preschool Auction” focused on Reagan’s obsession with getting Amy accepted to Little Nudge Academy, the best adorably named, petting ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Year's Eve'

January 13th, 2012 2:03pm EST
Up All Night
“Up All Night” debuted in its Thursday night post-“Office” slot and proved what we kind of all already knew: it’s more than a worthy replacement for the abysmal “Whitney,” but not nearly good enough to make up for the loss of “Community.” That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped liking the show. I’ll happily eat the hamburger, but I’m still gonna be pissed that the filet mignon in unicorn sauce was taken off the menu. Aaaaanyway…this is the last time I’ll whip out the “Community” comparisons. It’s not really fair. Well, unless it’s being compared to “Parks and Recreation,” which is just as brilliant....

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' 'Carnage,' & More

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'First Christmas'

December 8th, 2011 10:07am EST
Up All Night
This week, “Up All Night” rolled out its first Christmas episode. In the context of the series, and compared to sitcom Christmas episodes in general, it was a success.

When Chris and Reagan stroll Amy by Gene and Terry’s pimped-out “Winter Wonderland” yard display, the adorable toddler lights up like Rudolph’s nose. (The reindeer, not Maya.) Upon seeing this, Reagan decides to deck her own halls to make Amy happy, despite her aversion to overblown holiday decorations. Of course, this brings Reagan’s OCD-ness (which was in full effect last week) raging to the surface. Reagan’s mom, Angie ...
