Ron Burgundy, de wereldberoemde (fictieve) news anchor gaat zijn eigen autobiografie publiceren, getiteld ‘Let Me Off At The Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings’. Deze moet 10 november verschijnen, een maand voor de release van Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
“Ron Burgundy is known to all as the lead anchorman of San Diego’s award-winning Action 4 News Team and anchor of the first 24-hour news channel, GNN (Global News Network), but few know the real man behind the news desk. In ‘LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!’ he will share never-before-told stories of his childhood and the events that led him to choose a career in the news business.
He will offer a rare glimpse behind the camera into the real life of a man many consider to be our greatest living news anchor. In his own words, he will share personal anecdotes about the women in his life, about his dog, Baxter, and his legendary news team. Along the way, he’ll also give sage advice on a variety of topics that matter most to him. The long wait is over. Ron Burgundy pulls no punches in this widely anticipated, fully authorized tell-all autobiography.”
Wat zegt Ron zelf?
“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!”
