Will Ferrell Was Seeing Double When He Noticed This Surprising Detail On A Hockey Player’s Helmet

Will Ferrell stands behind the barrier at a hockey game. He's hitting the barrier with the palms of his hand and seems to be yelling something. His mouth is wide open.

Will Ferrell is no stranger to people being a fan of his work — but the way that Cam Talbot expresses it is unlike anyone else. This is something that the actor discovered in the best way possible. Recently, Ferrell went to see a professional hockey game. Here, Talbot served as the goaltender for the Detroit Red Wings. At some point during the game, there was something about this player’s mask that caught Ferrell’s attention… it was the actor’s very own face!

More specifically, the player’s mask is covered in various photos of Ron Burgundy. This is the iconic character that Ferrell plays in the movie Anchorman. And, to be honest, the design is incredible. As you can imagine, this is not at all something that the actor was expecting to see at the game! Watch Ferrell hilariously tell the story to Seth Meyers in the video below.

Most of the time, actors like Ferrell have to politely decline chatting with fans. Not because they don’t want to, necessarily, but because it’s a bad time. In this case, however, it was Ferrell who had to wait his turn!

Cam Talbot’s One-of-a-Kind Ron Burgundy Mask Both Delights and Confuses Will Ferrell

“But why does Ron Burgundy inspire you to play good hockey?” Ferrell asks Myers with a laugh.

I can certainly understand why Ferrell was a bit surprised to learn that this is Talbot’s go-to mask. That being said, it’s also not surprising that his fans, on the other hand, understand this hockey player’s choice completely.

“Ron Burgundy inspires the best in all of us. Not just hockey,” one fan explains in the comments, with another adding, “As a a mom of a goalie, I can tell you they have a different way of thinking.”
