The 100 Greatest Movie Characters | Empire | 26. Ron Burgundy

"I have many leather-bound books, and my apartment smells of rich mahogany." Ron Burgundy

Played By: Will Ferrell
Film: Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

Why He's On The List: Star of the funniest comedy of the last 20 years, Ron Burgundy towers over the rest of the moronic, blustering blowhards on Will Ferrell's CV. A truly deluded world class buffoon, Burgundy is nothing less than the American Alan Partridge, a stuck-record sexist endlessly fascinated by the sound of his own voice and obsessed with his own image. We'd hate him, if he weren't so damned funny. Anchorman 2 now, please.

Finest Hour: Ron's phone-box meltdown, following the brutal punting of his beloved gentleman friend, Baxter. He's in a glass case of emotion, apparently.
