INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Many people know him from movies such as “Elf,” “Daddy’s Home,” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”

Actor and comedian Will Ferrell was spotted Sunday evening at the Beech Grove Walmart.

On Monday night, Ferrell attended a Pacers game, with video from the team showing him in the locker room before the game and on the floor firing up fans before the game against the 76ers.

Rapper, actor and television producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson also was at the game, and he and Ferrell interacted before the game, with Ferrell sitting in a race car.

News 8 spoke with Mike Earnest who happened to be in the store’s parking lot when Ferrell was in Beech Grove. He said Ferrell was visiting Indiana to film a “road-trip style” documentary, and they randomly ended up at that Walmart to film in the parking lot.

Earnest said they did not go inside at all. After Ferrell finished filming the scene, he talked to fans and took pictures.

Earnest said he asked Ferrell for a photo, in which he responded saying, “Absolutely.”
