In a surprise appearance on Conan O’Brien’s chat show, Will Ferrell aka Ron ‘kind of a big deal’ Burgundy confirmed the existence of the sequel to the 2004 hit, Anchorman.
After playing some of his legendary jazz flute, Burgundy got audiences everywhere ready for a glut of new quotable lines with the news. The even better news is that many of the originals are already back on board, including director Adam McKay, producer Judd Apatow and cast members Paul Rudd (Brian Fantana), David Koechner (Champ Kind) and Steve Carell (Brick Tamland). See footage of Burgundy breaking the news below.
The sequel, which is yet to get an official title, is a long time in coming, probably due to the move from Dreamworks to Paramount. Whatever the reason, better late than never.
Welcome back Ron, stay classy.
