10 More Movie Character Memoirs

It was just announced that Will Ferrell’s alter ego Ron Burgundy, Anchorman extraordinaire and owner of a rich mahogany-smelling apartment, would be releasing his memoirs in advance of the film's upcoming sequel. This, as it absolutely had to, got me to thinking – what other movie characters should release their memoirs?

Holy hell, this is brilliant. Of these, I think I'd most like to read "My Life On Skates" followed directly by "Getting Old Twice (It Blows)."

Though "As I Saw It" would be rather compelling.

Thanks! I kind of wish Malick would release a short film just to show us Fife's story.
