Will Ferrell puts his pants on one leg at a time, just like you. Except, once his pants are on, he stages hilarious late-night drum battles with his rock and roll lookalike.
For much of his career, Ferrell has been saddled with the gift and the curse of looking exactly like Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This has resulted in a playful rivalry between the two men, with Ferrell pretending to be Smith after a recent Reddit AMA. Smith didn't take the insult lying down, challenging the comedian to a musical duel – drum vs. cowbell – all in the name of charity.

Will Ferrell took part in Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" series Tuesday afternoon. Because he's a stand-up guy, he was doing it to support Cancer for College (a charity that helps provide college scholarships to cancer survivors) on World Cancer Day, and because he's Will Ferrell, he made a lot of ridiculous jokes.

Look out, Ron Burgundy! There's more than one star making his comeback in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Baxter, Burgundy's beloved canine companion, returns for the highly anticipated sequel, but with a twist: The pup's original portrayer, Peanut, passed away in the years between films, so a new pooch was cast to fill his A-List paws.
Shelter pup Quince "was found wandering around a grocery store supermarket," says his trainer Ray Beal, before making his big screen debut in Anchorman 2. But you'd never guess the dog was a newbie based on his days on set.

The cast of Anchorman 2 stopped by The Daily Show Wednesday night, and it was everything you could've hoped for.

Will Ferrell recently revealed that his inspiration for Anchorman's Ron Burgundy came from a real-life anchor named Mort Crim.
Crim worked at newsrooms around the country, and was – with anchorwoman Jessica Savitch in Philadelphia – part of one of the first male-female news desk pairings in the country.

Will Ferrell's round-the-clock promotional tour for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is raising some interesting temporal paradoxes. Each of these appearances is taking place in the year 2013 (obviously), but Ferrell's Ron Burgundy character appears unchanged from the way he appears in both Anchorman films, both of which take place more than 30 years in the past.
