Is Will Ferrell trading in his Hollywood job for the NBA?
The 44-year-old actor and comedian was in New Orleans Wednesday night to take in the Hornets' game against the Chicago Bulls. And he wasn't just a spectator.
Dressed in a brown Puma warm-up jacket and black pants, Ferrell announced each team's starting line-up, but it wasn't business as usual.
Take Carlos Boozer for example.
Number five, he still lives with his mother . . . Carlos Boozer, Ferrell shouted, before the Chicago Bulls forward took the floor.
Number nine, he collects rare birds and has a pet dolphin named Chaci . . . Luol Deng, Ferrell continued, as Deng high-fived his teammates.
Ferrell went on to make fun of the Chicago Bulls through more fictional facts, including Joakim Noah's dancing skills, Ronnie Brewer's appetite for hot dogs and Derrick Rose's love for The Notebook.
Ferrell was part of a special 80s night spectacle at New Orleans Arena, complete with a Journey soundtrack, neon pink lights and a Pac Man game shown on the jumbotron.
The New Orleans Hornets were also on the receiving end of Ferrell's cracks.
6'10 from Mexico, he doesn't speak a lick of English but we still love him . . . Gustavo Ayon! Ferrell continued.
It's no accident that Ferrell served as starting lineup announcer in Wednesday's game.
The Anchorman actor is in town for work. Ferrell is currently filming the comedy Dog Fight, opposite Zach Galifianakis, Dylan McDermott and a slew of other funny people, including Jason Sudeikis, Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow. The film is scheduled for an Aug. 10 release date.
