The Untold Truth Of Ron Burgundy

You already know he sports a superior mustache and is blessed with a nose for news, but there are a few things you might not know about San Diego's most beloved newsperson. This is the untold truth of Ron Burgundy.

Of course, there could be no Ron Burgundy without Will Ferrell, the actor and comedian who enjoyed a triumphant seven-year run on Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 2002.

Ferrell has left his indelible mark on a number of films and television shows including memorable turns in Zoolander, Stranger than Fiction, and The Office, to name just a few. He's a master at creating huge, bombastic characters and he'll do just about anything for a laugh.

He can also infuse roles with heart and emotional heft, as he demonstrated in the 2003 comedy Elf. A man of many talents, Ferrell also created the comedy website Funny or Die with frequent collaborator Adam McKay.

What's more, he's served as an executive producer on shows like Eastbound & Down and Succession. Much like Ron Burgundy, Ferrell really gets around.

Released in 2004, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the most eminently quotable movies of all time. The now-classic film tells the story of you guessed it Ron Burgundy, a local newscaster in San Diego. His world is suddenly turned upside down by the addition of newscaster Veronica Corningstone, played by Christina Applegate. Ron is instantly smitten, and he has a really interesting way of showing it. Keep watching the video to see the Untold Truth of Ron Burgundy!
