Talk about great movie marketing! Just months before the Anchorman sequel is set to be released in theaters, its star, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), announces plans to release a memoir.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings will tell the “true” story of Ron Burgundy’s childhood, career in TV journalism, and — of course — his many ladies. In a statement, Ron Burgundy 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!”
Ron Burgundy is the main character in the 2004 comedy Anchorman, starring Will Ferrell. The sequel to the hit, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, premieres in theaters December 20. The Ron Burgundy memoir will hit shelves and be available for digital download November 19.
