Will Ferrell showed up at the Hammer Museum’s 10th Annual Gala in the Garden in Los Angeles with wife Viveca Paulin looking more grizzled than usual, but he's got a good reason for the facial hair. “I'm busy writing Anchorman 2 with [screenwriter] Adam McKay,” the funny man explained to “That's why I’m growing this out,” he said, pointing to his beard. “To grow my mustache out—I’m getting into character.” Shooting starts in February, but Ferrell was coy about plot and other details. “As soon as I mention anything specific about the movie, it falls through,” he says. “It all changes every week.”
