The wait is almost over!

In just two days, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters.

And to help celebrate the return of everyone's favorite mustachioed TV anchor, E! News sat down with Will Ferrell and company to chat about the highly anticipated sequel.

Actress Christina Applegate was asked which member of "the best damn news team" would she choose to babysit her nearly 3-year-old daughter, Sadie.

Looking around the room at costars Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd, Applegate quickly replied, "The fox," while pointing to a figurine sitting on the E! News set.

In fact, the actress was so adamant about it, she added, "If that fox hadn't eaten in a week, I'd still choose the fox."

Eventually though, Applegate settled on Rudd's character, Brian Fantana, in regard to to hypothetically looking after her child.

"But I really, really wouldn't though," she insisted. "I'd still choose the rabid fox."

We can't say we'd blame her!

Directed by Adam McKay, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues also features returning cast members Fred Willard, Chris Parnell and Vince Vaughn. It hits theaters Dec. 18.

For more from the cast, tune in for the E! Entertainment special, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, hosted by E! News' Giuliana Rancic, premiering Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
