WASHINGTON - Actor and comedian Will Ferrell made a stop at the Newseum Tuesday night to visit a new exhibit that honors Ferrell's comedy classic "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."
"I remember the day we wrapped ‘Anchorman,' we said, ‘One day this would be in a museum,'" Ferrell joked.
From Ron Burgundy's jazz flute to his mustache comb, the Newseum shows off props and costumes from the film.
The display also features a life-size replica of Burgundy's anchor desk.
"I'm becoming less famous than Ron," Ferrell said tongue-in-cheek. "It's pleasantly surreal to walk through that exhibit and see all the stuff that we created."
Ferrell has been on a nationwide tour, many times appearing in character as Ron Burgundy, as he promotes the movie's sequel.
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is slated to hit theaters Dec. 18.
