LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Will Ferrell donned his Ron Burgundy persona on Wednesday night, hitting the set of “Conan” to reveal an “Anchorman” sequel is on the way.
Playing a flute and dressed in his classic cardinal “Anchorman” jacket, Will walked on stage to loud cheers from the studio audience, before revealing the news.
“I want to announce this to everyone here in the Americas, to my friends in Spain, Turkey and the UK, including England, that as of 0900 Mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to ‘Anchor Man,’” he said.
“It is official,” Will – as Ron – added, “There will be a sequel to ‘Anchorman.’ There will be a sequel!”
But he also offered a bit of advice to Conan.
“I’ve got one small criticism, and it’s probably something only a professional like me would notice, but Conan, you look awful,” he said, adding, “Just go under the knife.”
