The Irish American actor has been in New Orleans since last November working on his upcoming political comedy "Dog Fight". In his new movie he plays a political idiot Cam Brady alongside his costar Zach Galifianakis. "The Hangover" star was also on board at the Mardi Gras parade.
Speaking to the Times-Picayune Ferrell said "I don't know what to expect. I do have to say, everybody is coming up to me and...they have the same speech pattern. They go 'Have you been here before for Mardi Gras?' And I say 'No.' Then they pause. 'Oh. You're going to have a good time.'"
He adds, "It's slightly ominous, almost like it's going to be fraternity hazing or something. But I don't know what to expect. I'm not going to try to predict [what happens], and I think it's going to be crazy and fun."
