Ron Burgundy, the fictional anchorman starring in the film of the same name, is to pen a satirical memoir.
Ron Burgundy is played in Anchorman (and its sequel) by Will Ferrell. The 2004 film and its socially inept characters have undergone something of a revival over the past few months, largely owing to the upcoming sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Burgundy's memoirs, entitled LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!: My Classy Life and Other Musing will be released a month before the film is due out in cinemas, on November 19th of this year.
They will feature "never-before-told stories of his childhood" and his rise to the "greatest living news anchor." He will also reveal all about his Action 4 News Team: Brian, Brick and Champ. His news team played respectively by: Paul Rudd (Friends), Steve Carell (The Office) and David Koechner (The Office).
The press release announcing Burgundy's upcoming literary feat, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, included a quote from the newsman himself. He said "I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written. I'm too close to the work, I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing, I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank!"
