Ron Burgundy is ready to tell all.
That is, the fictional character played by Will Ferrell in the 2004 hit comedy Anchorman, is ready to tell all. Crown Archetype, an imprint of Random House, will publish the fake journalist's memoir, titled Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings, on Nov. 19.
The classiest man in San Diego says in a release he will be sharing "never-before-told stories of his childhood" and what led him to become TV's "greatest living news anchor." He'll also delve into his romantic life and share stories about his dog, Baxter, and his news crew, known as the Action 4 News Team.
Burgundy also adds that while he doesn't know if it's the "greatest autobiography ever written," he "cried like a... baby" the first time he read it through.
The book will hit shelves right around the time the film sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, hits theatres on Dec. 20. The film sees all of Burgundy's main crew reunited, including Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
Like the first film, the second was written by Ferrell and Adam McKay, who also directed both movies.
The memoir also comes on the heels of news Burgundy and company will be given an exhibit at the Newseum, the Washington, D.C., museum devoted to the media. It opens Nov. 14.
