Amy Poehler has revealed her appearance failed to make the final cut of the first Anchorman film.
The funnywoman shot scenes as part of a side-plot about a domestic terrorist group targeting San Diego, but none of them made the final cut.
"I got cut out of the first Anchorman. I was a young gal, hadn't even got my teeth fixed, and I played a bank teller that Maya Rudolph and her gang robbed. I got into a fight," she told Vulture.
"That was one of the coolest experiences because Adam McKay, who's my friend and fellow UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) member, was directing. Even back then, I was like, 'This movie is so long, I'm never going to make it in this'. I still feel that way."
The 42-year-old admitted she has doubts about her cameo, adding: "We'll see if I actually make the cut. I was thinking for fun that I would put in my contract that if they cut me they'd really have to pay up."
Amy revealed the experience was a "blast".
"It was super fun. Those guys are so great and so funny. Will Ferrell's really the most talented person in the world. He's like a comedy Olympian," she said. "I got to go to Atlanta and hang with Paul Rudd and Will and [David] Koechner and [Steve] Carell. And Tina [Fey], of course. It was a blast."
But she is keeping tight-lipped over her character, teasing: "It's an incredibly researched, in-depth character that I spent five to 10 minutes thinking about before I did it."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will be released in December.
