10 Hysterical Anchorman 2 Lines You'll Be Quoting For Years To Come
It took 10 minutes to realize that this was an impossible task. Almost every line of dialogue penned by Ferrell and McKay for The Legend Continues easily could fit on a t-shirt or coffee mug, living alongside “I’m kind of a big deal” as the next great Ron Burgundy quote.

CB Water Cooler: Should Will Ferrell And Adam McKay Make Anchorman 3?
There are precious few successful comedy trilogies. The Hangover Part III proved how difficult it can be to continue milking laughs out of a premise. But with dollars rolling in for Anchorman 2, could this inspire Ferrell and McKay to dive back in for a third Ron Burgundy movie? Should they?

Ron Burgundy Scoffs At 24-Hour News In New Anchorman 2 Clip
In this clip for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Dylan Baker plays a pitchman trying to sign Ron to his wild news channel. Of course, Ron is initially dubious ("News going twenty-four hours around the clock? A channel that's never off in other words?...No offense, but you are stupid.") but a fat paycheck is enough for this anchorman with salon quality hair to give it a go.

Watch Will Ferrell Anchor A North Dakota Newscast As Ron Burgundy
Ferrell actually plays it straight, reporting on a fire at a neighborhood Sam’s Club and tossing it to a puff piece about holiday travel. What’s so odd is that no one initially acknowledges the fact that a fictional anchorman is suddenly sitting at a news desk in North Dakota, relying facts to undoubtedly confused audience members at home.

Ron Burgundy Getting A Journalism School Named After Him
When Ron Burgundy promised "I'm kind of a big deal" in the original Anchorman, he was being a pompous jackass. But as the hype surrounding the upcoming sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues gets louder and louder, there's no denying it: Ron Burgundy is everywhere and people are loving it. People even trust Ron Burgundy so much these days that they're willing to let him ruin-- uh, I mean educate-- the future anchormen and women of tomorrow.

Fall Movie Preview: The Profit vs. Prestige Venn Diagram
Welcome to fall movie season, where it's all about awards bait if you look in one direction (hello, August: Osage County!) and all about oddball blockbusters if you look in another (happy to see you, Riddick). Like any other time for movie releases, autumn is all about what you make of it, whether that's catching the three-hour French drama about lesbians or counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But if you want an advance look at which films are begging for awards and which are best paired with a giant tub of popcorn, look no further

Ron Burgundy Releasing Tell-All Memoir One Month Before Anchorman 2
After nearly a decade of being quoted endlessly by fans, Ron Burgundy's many bits of wisdom -- "Milk was a bad choice," "I'm kind of a big deal," etc.-- have become legend. The arrival of Anchorman: The Legend Continues this Christmas promises to give us more where that came from, but Ron Burgundy wouldn't be a classy newsman if he didn't know how to take advantage of an opportunity. So in November, a month before the Anchorman' sequel's debut, we'll see the arrival of Let Me Off at the Top!, a.k.a. Ron Burgundy's memoir.

Ron Burgundy Meets The 80s In Anchorman: The Legend Continues Trailer
When Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was released in 2004 it became an almost instant cult phenomenon. That summer it was hard to find a regular movie-goer who couldn't quote all of the movie's best lines verbatim, and thanks to the staying power of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's comedy it never got old. But while fans pleaded for a sequel, for years it seemed like an impossible dream.

Meryl Streep Wants A Cameo In Anchorman 2
I'm pretty sure there's a clause in every single contract Meryl Streep signs that she's allowed to do whatever the hell she wants. Suddenly turn Hope Springs into a musical? Sure. Be a famous American playing Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady? Hey, it won her an Oscar! It might even go so far that every contract for every movie includes a Streep clause

Harrison Ford Will Dust Off His Comedic Chops For Anchorman: The Legend Continues
It’s strange how few comedies are peppered across Harrison Ford’s film career. Straight away from that smug, yet charming smile he donned through much of American Graffiti, it seemed obvious that he would be the leading man winning hearts and minds by adding masculinity to a comedy world being ruled by Woody Allen.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues Set Hit By Wire Thieves
For a long time it looked like we would never get to see a sequel to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
