Tom Brokaw Joins Will Ferrell On Stage To Play "Anchorman"

The New York Post's Page Six reports that Sunday night, during the "Funny or Die" tour at Radio City Music Hall, Will Ferrell brought Tom Brokaw on stage with him:

Ferrell, acting as his famous "Anchorman" character, Ron Burgundy, quipped, "I don't know if you remember that broadcasters' convention that you and I were at in Lake Tahoe, Nev., and we got in a BB gun war with Roger Mudd and Morley Safer. And then you convinced me to get on a snowmobile and ride into a casino with Diane Sawyer. Do you remember she took her top off?"

Apparently Brokaw played along nicely, which isn't a surprise. Below, two videos of Brokaw being a good sport — one from "Conan," where he crawled through a cardboard maze; the other from "Ellen," where he danced begrudgingly after Ellen prodded him.

Tom Brokaw appeared on "Ellen" yesterday to promote his book, Boom. But just when he thought he had escaped without dancing (his daughters' worst fear), Ellen and the audience persuaded him.
