Everyone’s Favorite Faux Anchorman Ron Burgundy Gets Museum Exhibit

burgundy_newseumYou might want to cancel that big winter trip to Europe and instead fly to Washington, D.C. to celebrate the upcoming release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

The Newseum in partnership with Paramount Pictures has announced the opening of an exhibit featuring movie anchor Ron Burgundy.

“I’m kind of a big deal, so it’s no surprise that there will soon be a whole exhibit about me in our nation’s capital,” Burgundy wrote on the Newseum’s website. “They literally raided my closet and the Channel 4 News set to put my stuff on display at what they call the Newseum in Washington, D.C. So stop whatever you’re doing and make plans to visit my glass case of emotion, ‘Anchorman: The Exhibit.’

In a video on the site, Burgundy asks, “What the hell is the Newseum?” Then after realizing the Newseum is a museum about news he asks, “What took the Newseum so damn long to give me a call? I mean, come on you knuckleheads.”

The exhibit opens one week from Thursday on November 14. Click here for more info.

Newseum to Open ‘Anchorman’ Exhibit

Newseum visitors … assemble! The Washington, D.C. museum has announced the opening of “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” timed with the release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” later this year.

The exhibit “explores the reality behind the humor of ‘Anchorman’ and tracks the rise of personality-driven news formats in the 1970s,” according to the Newseum. Costumes and original props from the movie will be on display, and the exhibit will feature a replica KVWN-TV anchor desk where visitors can pose.

The exhibit will open in November and remain on display until August 2014.

Great Odin’s Raven!: Trailer for Anchorman 2 Released

TVSpy is in a glass case of emotion over the release of the trailer for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” otherwise known as Anchorman 2.

The movie is a follow up to “Anchorman,” a documentary style look at local news in the 1970′s. Not really. Though it did give us lines like, “I’m kind of a big deal” and treated us all to an acapella version of “Afternoon Delight.”

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy, as will Paul Rudd/Brian Fantana, Steve Carrell/Brick Tamland and David Koechner/Champ Kind. The movie is set to drop just before Christmas 2013.
