The ‘Anchorman’ actor was photographed sporting an Irish soccer jersey as he visited a gallery in Miami.
It’s not the first time he’s donned and Irish sport jersey – during a visit to UCD in 2008 he wore a full Irish rugby kit.
“As you all know, I’m kind of a big deal, and this is a big deal,” he told the crowd at the Dublin College.
“As I perused my leather bound volumes of Ulysses, Finnegans Wake, Dubliners, and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, standing in my mahogany library, a lot of feelings ran across my head, like, man, I should have read these books,” he joked.
He was awarded the James Joyce Award for contribution to the field of comedy entertainment by the college’s Literary and Historical Society.
