21 Things You Didn’t Know About the First Anchorman

Last night, Will Ferrel went on Conan and surprised everyone when he came out dressed totally in the character of Ron Burgundy. He played his flute perfectly, did a little witty banter back and forth with Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter, and then announced that Paramount Pictures is in the process of making a sequel to the first Anchorman. That’s right, there’s an Anchorman 2 in our futures! Ron Burgundy and his news team are ready to give us the news again, and I could not be more thrilled!

In honor of this announcement, I thought I would go back and watch Anchorman (for the 3489032nd time) and while watching, I found out some pretty interesting little facts about the first Anchorman from IMDB, and I am here to fill you in on all the stuff you might not have known! Enjoy and stay classy, CollegeCandy readers!

    Wow. You added nothing new to what we already know from the actual page. Trying to pass off all of the trivia from the Anchorman IMDB page as an article. Great journalism work!

    I'm so torn about Anchorman 2! There's nothing worse than a bad sequel, and I worry that if it sucks I'll never see Anchorman the same way. But I want to love it, so I hope it's good!
