Fans of Ron Burgundy rejoiced on Wednesday night, when Will Ferrell made the long anticipated announcement of an “Anchorman” sequel.
A proud Irish American, in 2008 the Hollywood comedian was presented with the James Joyce award for comedy by University College Dublin.
Speaking to IrishCentral in 2010, Ferrell recalled one of his funniest memories from his time in Ireland.
“We were up in Derry which was so cool to see; I’d never been to Northern Ireland before. So I was standing on the street there waiting to cross at the lights when I noticed a driver was staring at me. I wondered if I'd done something wrong and he rolls down his window and shouts: 'Hi, Will Ferrell?' And I say yeah and he shouts: ‘What the f--k are you doing here?’ like he was mad at me. He couldn't believe what he was seeing.”
