Speaking during an interview on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live (via NME), actor Will Ferrell ruled out a potential sequel playing Buddy, the human adopted and raised by elves and Santa at the North Pole, from the 2003 hit Elf.
When asked if he would do a sequel to Elf after returning to play Ron Burgundy in Anchorman 2, Ferrell said, "Absolutely not." He added: "I just think it would look slightly pathetic if I tried to squeeze back in the elf tights. Buddy the middle-aged elf."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues came out almost 10 years after the original in 2004, so maybe Ferrell might come around to an Elf sequel at some point.
