'Anchorman' Ron Burgundy's memoir will be legendary

Ron Burgundy, award-winning newsman and hot dog eating contest runner-up, can now add "author" to his long list of accolades.

The classy (and fictional) anchor, played by Will Ferrell in 2004's hit comedy "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," is ready to release a book called "Let Me Off At The Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings." (If Burgundy's love of literature is any indication, it might even be bound in leather.)

The autobiography will "share never-before-told stories of his childhood and the events that led him to choose a career in the news business," according to a statement from publisher Crown Archetype.

The tell-all will also cover Burgundy's personal wisdom on women, insider information regarding his legendary Action 4 news team (hopefully not the part about Brick killing a guy with a trident), and of course he'll talk about his little gentleman, Baxter the dog.

"I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written. I'm too close to the work," Burgundy said in the statement.

"Let Me Off At The Top!" will arrive November 19, just before "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" arrives in theaters December 20.

Until then, you stay classy, book readers.
