The Staples Center just got a whole lot more secure.

Dressed for the part, funnyman Will Ferrell stood courtside among the red coat security during the Lakers-Suns game on Tuesday.

Ferrell, whose nametag read “Ted Vagina,” appeared to take his job very seriously. He even ejected former Laker Shaqille O’Neal at one point:

The actor will soon go back to work as San Diego’s beloved newsman Ron Bergundy in the "Anchorman" sequel.

Ferrell, Wahlberg to star in football comedy

After teaming up in the 2010 cop caper "The Other Guys," Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are getting ready to make more mischief. The duo will reunite for the upcoming comedy "Turkey Bowl."

In the film, Ferrell and Wahlberg play men from different football-obsessed towns who lead their rival teams in an annual game of tackle football, according to Deadline. The ultimate prize? Bragging and trash-talking rights, of course!

Alec Baldwin has reportedly been cast as Wahlberg's father, and Deadline reports that the football games will feature tons of celebrity cameos, similar to the rival TV-broadcaster gang fights in Ferrell's film "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."

Before tackling football, Ferrell starred in sports comedies set in the world of ice-skating ("Blades of Glory"), soccer ("Kicking & Screaming"), race-car driving ("Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"), and basketball ("Semi-Pro").

Jim Carrey's on his way to 'The Office'

Expect the season finale of "The Office" to end on a truly funny note now that Jim Carrey has signed on to appear in the hourlong episode.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Carrey will join fellow guest stars Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and Catherine Tate as candidates who want to take over the job vacated by former Dunder Mifflin office manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

Though Will Ferrell, who plays Deangelo Vickers, seems to have a lock on the job at the moment, Spader and "Doctor Who" alum Tate are likely to be the most serious contenders to take over for Carell, since all of the other actors are committed to other projects.
