Stay classy, curlers.

Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell's fictitious "Anchorman" character, will help cover Canada's Olympic curling trials for broadcaster TSN. Burgundy will be paired with someone else who's also "kind of a big deal," veteran curling broadcaster Vic Rauter, when the "Roar of the Rings" opens on Sunday.

The winners of the tournament in Winnipeg, Manitoba, will represent Canada at the Sochi Olympics in February. The women's final is Dec. 7 and the men's final is Dec. 8.

Burgundy says in a release that he will "accept your hallowed task and sing out with a battle cry worthy of your love and your wisdom. And that song is, 'Winnipeg, get ready to paint the town Burgundy!'"

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" opens on Dec. 20.
