He’s getting a second movie, so why wouldn’t Ron Burgundy get his own book? On November 19, fans of the movie “Anchorman” will be able to buy Burgundy’s memoir, “LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!: My Classy Life and Other Musings.” You may be wondering how that’s possible, since Burgundy is a fictional character portrayed by Will Ferrell.
The book will contain stories from Burgundy’s “life,” including his childhood, his many loves, and of course being TV’s “greatest living news anchor.” “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work,” Burgundy says in a press release. “I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing … I cried like a godd*** baby, and you can take that to the bank!”
The book will be out to coincide with the release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which brings back the cast of Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner. “Anchorman 2″ will hit the big screen on December 20.
