With Ron Burgundy coming to ESPN’s studios, let’s hope that nobody messes with the teleprompters.
The person said that the details have not been finalized, but it is unlikely that Ferrell will break from his Ron Burgundy character. Ferrell recently appeared in character on TBS’ “Conan” to promote Burgundy’s new book, and to insult the Dodge Durango — the very truck that the 1970s journalist has been hawking in 30-second increments on TV.
Ferrell follows fellow comedic actor Ken Jeong (“Community”) to the “SportsCenter” dais. Jeong hosted the Big Show Nov. 1.
“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” hits theaters Dec. 20.
The Big Lead first reported the story.
