All hail King Will Ferrell at the Mardi Gras Parade in New Orleans


Will Ferrell
Will Ferrell donned the red gown and crown as King Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine, in the New Orleans' annual Mardi Gras parade.

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."
