“Kicking & Screaming” coach lacing up
Will Ferrell has played a goofy basketball player, NASCAR driver, and figure skater.
He played a youth soccer coach in “Kicking & Screaming,” and now he's ready to take to the field.
The “Anchorman” star arrived in Brazil this week to stir up some energy for the U.S. soccer team ahead of its game against Germany. He also announced that he is joining the team as a replacement for injured star Jozy Altidore, which should really fortify the squad's goal scoring ability — and intimidation factor.
“I'm not going to lie to you, I'm not in the best shape, but I'm going to try my best and live up to the spirit of this American team,” he told a rowdy crowd. “If the game gets close, I will bite, I bite will bite every tournament player if I have to.”
