Will Ferrell and Nick Offerman, in bathrobes, promote ‘Casa de mi Padre’ on ‘Today’

Will Ferrell sat down for a funny, if fairly ordinary interview with Matt Lauer Tuesday morning on the “Today” show to promote his Spanish-language comedy, “Casa de mi Padre.” Then this writer turned the TV off and started to work. ( “Hunger Games” premiere recaps don’t write themselves.)

Thankfully, BuzzFeed points us to part two of the interview, where Ferrell was joined by Nick Offerman, the actor better known as Ron Swanson from “Parks and Recreation.” In bathrobes with Bloody Marys in hand, the pair talked about the film and made Hoda and Kathie Lee giggle a lot.

(It may be worth noting that Offerman was without facial hair, which may shock those who only know him as the bacon loving parks director. Offerman's clean-shaven face is also currently appearing in "21 Jump Street.")

During the interview, a poker-faced Offerman joked that he initially refused to take the role of a DEA Agent. “And I was sedated by my wife and Will came over (‘Under the cover of darkness,’ Ferrell interjected) and there was a whole intervention. And at the end of it I signed a contract.”

Watch the interview below.
