It's no secret that Ron Burgundy loves three things: poetry, a glass of scotch and his friend Baxter. We already have a Ron Burgundy book and Ron Burgundy's Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch ice cream, so it's time for Baxter to have his shot at the big time.

It's no secret that director Adam McKay loves to let his actors improv and riff, sometimes repeating the same scene dozens of times and creating new material with every take. With 2004's 'Anchorman,' McKay had so much additional material that he was able to create an additional film, titled 'Wake Up, Ron Burgundy' for the DVD release. With 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' right around the corner, he's revealed a far more ambitious (and insane) plan.

Sadly, outside of the occasional Old Milwaukee commercial, occasional 'SNL' appearance, or maybe even the latest episode of 'Bitch Hunter,' we're unlikely to see Will Ferrell take any regular presence on the small screen again.  That's okay though, considering the imminent arrival of 'Anchorman 2' with director Adam McKay, and an upcoming NBC series with both behind the camera!  And hey, why not throw in a little Anne Heche for good measure?  Who's ready for 'Bad Judge?'
