Newseum's 'Anchorman' Exhibit Is Kind of a Big Deal
"I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany."
And, in addition, Ron Burgundy now has a museum exhibit to call his own.
"Anchorman: The Exhibit," at Washington's Newseum, is based on the 2004 hit comedy "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."
The exhibit will open Nov. 14, prior to the release of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." It will be on display through Aug. 31, 2014.
"I'm literally trapped in a glass case of emotion," Burgundy, who's played by Will Ferrell, said in a media release of his inclusion in the museum's exhibit.
Included in the exhibit are costumes worn by the film's Channel 4 Evening News team; a re-creation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set and a number of original props from the movie, including Burgundy's jazz flute and the whip used by rival anchorman Arturo Mendez during the film's fight scene between rival news teams.
Visitors to the exhibit also will have an opportunity to step in front of the camera and participate in an "Anchorman"-themed TV spot at one of the Newseum's Be a TV Reporter stations. With lead anchor Burgundy providing a snappy introduction, budding reporters can find out whether they have what it takes to become a member of the Channel 4 news team.
Don't act like you're not impressed.
