[Movies] Will Ferrell Says There Will Be No Elf 2 Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2013
And he reveals his least favorite SNL guest host...
In an interview on Watch What Happens Live (via Zap2It), Will Ferrell revealed that he will not be starring in a sequel to Elf. Here are highlights:
On Elf 2: "Absolutely not. I just think it would look slightly pathetic if I tried to squeeze back in the elf tights. Buddy the middle-aged elf."
On his favorite and least favorite SNL characters: "My favorite character to play, there's so many to choose from. A canon. Maybe my favorite sketch ... is the Cowbell Sketch, the 'Don't Fear the Reaper.' And the one character I was happy to not play anymore -- this is going to seem odd, but I was forced to play Ted Turner and I never really had a good Ted Turner impersonation. ... It's not a good story. It's the truth, though."
On his least favorite guest host of SNL: "Ugh, Joan Allen. She was a real turd... I mean, you know about Joan Allen."
On meeting George W. Bush: "[Bush] had come to 'Saturday Night Live' to a do a pre-election special ... they asked if I would come and meet the governor because he was huge fan. I could tell he had no idea I was the guy who played him."
