Will Ferrell Figure Skates to the Downton Abbey Theme
On Thursday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ferrell
performed a figure skating routine (in white sneakers and not on ice,
but you get the picture) and spoke about his hopes of competing in the
2018 Winter Olympics.
"You don't know how painful it's been to be snubbed by the [2014 Olympic
figure skating] team, not even told when they tryouts were on," he
said. "But I've been working on my routine, and in 2018, I'll be 50."
But, Ferrell's already figured out the routine that will get him to South Korea for the next winter games and
he's got the penguin suit, top hat and white gloves to tie it all
"If you're wondering about what my costume is, my theme is Downton Abbey, and I'm a butler," he explained.
"Are you Carson from Downton Abbey?" asked Fallon.
"I don't know, I've never seen it," said Ferrell, "but I'm a butler."
glad to see the sports and literary worlds merging together and it
looks like Team USA's got a good shot at winning gold in 2018!
