Will Ferrell, wearing his trademark Ron Burgundy moustache and “Anchorman” outfit, helped open the Canadian Curling trials in Winnipeg Sunday.

Ferrell is promoting “Anchorman 2,” set for release this month before Christmas.

He joined TSN curling broadcaster Vic Rauter to comment on part of the opening draw as the eight women’s teams vying for an Olympic berth squared off.
