‘Anchorman’ Ron Burgundy to Pen Memoir

Legendary movie anchorman Ron Burgundy will tell his story in an autobiography titled, “Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings.”

The book will be published by Random House’s Crown Publishing Group which posted the news to its facebook page and will feature Burgundy’s tales about, “the women in his life, his dog, Baxter, and his legendary news team.”

The book will be released in print and digital on November 19.

Burgundy will again grace the screen with his wisdom, refinement and jazz flute stylings in the upcoming sequel to his first film, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” opening December 20.

TVSpy is only hoping Burgundy’s memoir will be a fine leather-bound book we can place in our apartment that smells like rich mahogany.

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.

‘Anchorman’ Director Says All Anchors Today Are ‘Ron Burgundy-esque’

In an interview with Salon about the recently announced sequel to 2004′s “Anchorman,” Adam McKay, the director and co-writer of both the original and the upcoming sequel, said that Ron Burgundy is actually more relevant today than he was when the first movie was released.

In his opinion, the character has become “more and more relevant” because news anchors have become more and more like him.

“We talk about all these anchormen on the air now and they’re all kind of Ron Burgundy-esque guys,” McKay told Salon.  “Sadly, the character has gotten more and more relevant as the news has gotten to be nothing more than a ratings-driven profit machine.” Full interview
