Actor Will Ferrell dons a kilt, then joins TSN for curling trials

Will Ferrell (L) as Ron Burgundy jokes with Skip Glenn Howard prior to the start of the Roar of the Rings Canadian Olympic Curling Trials in Winnipeg, Manitoba December 1, 2013.


Will Ferrell, wearing his trademark Ron Burgundy moustache and "Anchorman" outfit, helped open the Canadian Curling trials in Winnipeg Sunday.

He even tried his luck on the ice and then donned a kilt to the delight of fans.

He met with reporters where he said the name Winnipeg was Latin for the small tundra bunny who lives in the hole on the hill.

As for curling jargon, he said he knows what "hurry hard" means but uses it mostly when he's stuck in traffic to get the driver in front to start moving.

Ferrell is promoting "Anchorman 2," set for release this month before Christmas.

He joined TSN curling broadcaster Vic Rauter to comment on part of the opening draw as the eight women's teams vying for an Olympic berth squared off.
