Great Odin's raven! Anchorman character Ron Burgundy is slated to bust out of his glass case of emotion and release a tell-all memoir later this fall.
The fictional San Diego-based news anchor, played by Will Ferrell, is legendary for his broadcasting chops, his insatiable lust for single malt scotch and suits, and his signature line "You stay classy, San Diego."
Burgundy's new memoir, entitled Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings, will reveal stories from his childhood, his early years in the TV news game, hard-earned lessons about relationships and career goals, and probably tips on playing the jazz flute.
In a press release, Burgundy said, "I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written. I'm too close to the work." He also added, "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!"
The book, published by Random House's Crown Archetype, is set for release on Nov. 19.
Burgundy's book will be another in a long line of fictional memoirs.
