Will Ferrell can add a rather unusual role to his resume after acting as court-side security for a basketball game in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The Anchorman star donned the traditional red jacket and tie of the infamous stony-faced security team at the Staples Center as he faced the crowds during a half-time performance.

Ferrell even sported a fake name tag around his neck to complete his disguise for the game between home team the Los Angeles Lakers and Arizona's Phoenix Suns.

The actor never cracked a smile throughout his appearance and in what appeared to be a prank only moved to eject former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal from the venue and jokingly escort him out of the stadium with his hands held behind his back.
