Paramount On Screen: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy [PG-13]
Movies | 03/25/2024 | 7:30PM
Hotshot television anchorman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) welcomes upstart reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) into the male-dominated world of 1970s broadcast news — that is, until the talented female journalist begins to outshine Burgundy on air. Soon he grows jealous, begins a bitter feud with Veronica and eventually makes a vulgar slip on live TV that ruins his career. However, when an outrageous story breaks at the San Diego Zoo, Ron may get a chance to redeem himself.

- Will Ferrell graduated from college with a degree in Journalism. He anchored the local news a few times before breaking into comedy.
- During an October 2019 AV Club interview with Tim Robbins, he mentioned that he agreed to take the small roles in High Fidelity (2000) and Anchorman (even though he knew he would be paid very little for them) because they promised to make him a custom wig for each of the roles, both of which he got to keep after filming ended. Robbins said that he still owns both wigs as of 2019, and he often uses them in Halloween costumes.
- According to Mr. Burgundy himself, Ron’s full name is Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy.
