Funny man Will Ferrell wants to buy his very own British pub.
The actor and comedian, who has always been very vocal about his pride in his Irish roots, wants to buy his own traditional English (not Irish?!) inn close to the west London home of his favorite soccer team, Chelsea, and believes the venture would provide great movie-making inspiration.
The 42-year-old said: "All the Chelsea players would be welcome, but I wouldn't want a celebrity place, it would be an old-fashioned pub.
"I would be hands on. I could get some great material off all the regulars. I am sure there would be a film in it."
Ferrell said that while some American bars try to emulate the cozy pub atmosphere, you have to go to England to find the real thing.
"Over-priced fish and chips does not constitute a real British pub,” he said.
The Irish-American “Stepbrothers” star, who has two sons with wife Viveca Paulin and is expecting a third in January, will be hoping the drinks in his planned pub are better than his experiences in Sweden for a TV special he filmed with survival expert Bear Grylls.
He said: "It was the thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine drunk, which is sad."
