How Do You Improve Mardi Gras? Add Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell is in New Orleans filming the movie ‘Dogfight,’ which we learned a week ago when he popped up at the New Orleans Arena and read the starting line-ups for the Hornets-Chicago game.

This made the funnyman an easy choice to lead the annual Krewe of Bacchus parade Sunday. And, of course, he dressed up like a king. 

The Krewe of Bacchus is one of the superkrewes celebrations that take place during the run up to Madri Gras’  Fat Tuesday events. Bacchus, which is named for the Roman god of wine, was the first krewe to feature a celebrity king. Previous Bacchus monarchs include Drew Bress, Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope and Val Kilmer.

Given Ferrell’s propensity for showing skin in movies like ‘Old School’ and ‘Talladega Nights,’ one may have expected the 44-year-old to shed his top during his Bacchus reign. Thankfully, he didn’t. Maybe because, as king, he was the one handing out the beads.

But that doesn’t mean he still won’t pull a Frank the Tank and strip down in exchange for cheap plastic beads on Fat Tuesday. Check out video and photos of Ferrell at King Bacchus below.
