Well maybe not to the extreme that Will Ferrell has created with the character, but Anchorman, Ron Burgundy is in fact inspired by a real anchorman out of Philadelphia named Mort Crim according to Good Morning America.
So is Mort Crim offended? Not at all. See the real life inspiration for Ron Burgundy here.
And personally, I can’t wait to see Anchorman 2….
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens in theaters December 20.
