Dressed as King Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, with a crown atop his head, Ferrell tossed beads and coins into the crowd of revelers. (Update: He also threw mini cowbells.) The actor has been filming the comedy “The Campaign,” also known as “Dog Fight,” in the Louisiana city. His co-star Zach Galifianakis also rode on a float, but sadly there isn’t photographic evidence of this.
Past kings include Andy Garcia, Val Kilmer, James Gandolfini, Nicolas Cage and a number of other famous gentlemen. See more photos from the parade below.
