Anchorman must be paying well! Will Ferrell wears suit made of money

A-list comedian Will Ferrell was joined by Irish actor Chris O'Dowd, who is fast climbing his way to the top, at one of the quirkiest premieres around.
Roscommon native Chris attended the premiere of 'The Spoils of Babylon' in LA with his wife, broadcaster Dawn Porter, who has clearly been working on her tan as she happily showed off her bronzed pins in a leather mini skirt.
"Just saw a preview of 'the spoils of Babylon' for IFC. Splendidly funny stuff. Watch out for it," Chris tweeted last night after the screening.
But it was Will Ferrell who stole the show in his 'money suit', giving his Ron Burgundy alter ego a red carpet break.
And while Ferrell is still the undisputed king of comedy, O'Dowd's career is ringing fast.
In addition to his movie career, he's penning two children's books based on his hit Sky One show Moone Boy.
Mr O'Dowd, alongside co-creator, Nick Vincent Murphy, has signed a publishing deal to write the books, with the first one due out next Autumn.
The show, very loosely-based on Mr O'Dowd's own childhood, follows the story of a young boy in rural Ireland, his imaginary friend and his dysfunctional family. The third season will air next year.
"Throughout the first three series of Moone Boy, it's often occurred to us that there's so much more we could do with the world of the imaginary friends, but the hassle of having to film things with our big clumsy cameras made it tricky to delve too much into it in the show," he said.
""However, this feels like the perfect world in which to explore novels for a younger audience, with plenty of opportunities for fun doodles and illustrations by Cartoon Saloon. There will be lots of jokes and we hope that parents will want to steal the books from their children to read them too."
