Prepare your mustache combs and dust off the old jazz flute:
On Nov. 21, Ron Burgundy is coming back to Conan. Update: The Burgundy bit will now air on Conan’s Nov. 20 episode.
As you may recall, Burgundy – a.k.a. Will Ferrell – last stopped by Conan O’Brien’s TBS show to break the news that Anchorman’s long-anticipated sequel had finally been greenlit. This time around, Ferrell-as-Burgundy will apparently stick around for “a much longer conversation,” according to a release – one mainly about Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings, an Anchorman 2 tie-in book/Burgundy “autobiography” that hits shelves Nov. 18. Anchorman 2 debuts a month later, on Dec. 20.
“It’s thrilling to be on the Conan O’Brien show, a top flight show. I’m excited to hear he’s still on television,” “Burgundy” said in a statement.
Will he ditch that classic red suit for some horrific early ’80s fashions? Will he discuss his apparently rocky marriage to Veronica Corningstone? Will he bring Baxter?! Speculate away – after taking those pleated pants back…to the pants store. (We don’t blame you; it’s exciting news.)
