The first image of Will Ferrell filming for the movie “Dog Fight” in New Orleans has been released.
Ferrell plays a politician battling for the congressional seat in North Carolina against his rival, played by Zach Galifianakis, who is seen addressing the press with co-star Jason Sudeikis by his side.

Huffington Post quips that Ferrell’s hair in the scene is as quaffed as Mitt Romney’s. They said “Move over, Mitt Romney: there's a new political hair champion hitting the trail.”

Of course this isn’t the first time that Ferrell has gotten cosy with the political game, for years he practically made a living of doing impressions of the former president George W Bush for “Saturday Night Live”.

“Dog Fight” also has a great cast of comedic actors including Bryan Cox, Dan Akroyd, Dylan McDermott and John Lithgow.

Here’s Will Ferrell doing an impression of former president George Bush:
