Promo Video For Anchorman Ron Burgundy’s Spoof Memoir ‘Let Me Off At The Top! My Classy Life & Other Musings’
Century has sent over this brand new video of Ron Burgundy talking about his new book. ‘Let Me Off at the Top: My Classy Life and Other Musings’ is the autobiography everyone has been waiting for: a shockingly candid and raw confessional from an international treasure. The book is scheduled to hit shelves on November 19th, almost exactly a month before Burgundy returns to theaters in ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.’ Burgundy is quoted as saying of his book: “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work. I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing… I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank!”
The world’s most trusted and beloved television News Anchor pulls no punches in ‘Let Me Off at the Top!’ Burgundy tells the tale of his humble beginnings in a desolate Iowa coal-mining town to his years at Our Lady Queen of Chewbacca High School to his odds-defying climb to the dizzying heights of Anchordom.
Linked to the role since June, The Wrap are reporting that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has finally worked out his ‘Godzilla’ publicity schedule and closed a deal to play Pietro Maximoff, better known as Quicksilver, in Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ The outlet say that Taylor-Johnson didn’t close his deal until Wednesday, as the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ shooting schedule overlaps with his upcoming publicity tour for Legendary’s ‘Godzilla.’ That potential obstacle has reportedly been overcome and his availability to properly promote that creature feature and shoot ‘The Avengers’ sequel is now ensured. Quicksilver is one of two new characters that director Joss Whedon is introducing in the sequel, along with the Scarlet Witch – who will be played by his ‘Godzilla’ co-star Elizabeth Olsen.
