The Anchorman star donned an elf costume to play one of Santa's helpers in the 2003 comedy but told fans that there won't be a follow up.

Asked on US TV show Watch What Happens Live if Elf 2 would happen, the 46-year-old said: "Absolutely not."

When quizzed about why he wouldn't reprise the role, Will joked: "I just think it would look slightly pathetic if I tried to squeeze back in the elf tights: Buddy the middle-aged elf."

The film also starred James Caan, Bob Newhart and Zooey Deschanel.
