“I wanted to watch the monologue with Steve Martin,” Ferrell said Tuesday night on the Late Show with David Letterman, where he showed up dressed like a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day. “I look up, and there’s [Fox News host] Bill O’Reilly.”
“Everyone’s just clapping, and Bill O’Reilly’s like this,” Ferrell said, mimicking O’Reilly with a hand under his chin looking stone-faced and unamused. “I don’t know if he got a wrong seating assignment or something but just a real sourpuss.”

“Do you know Bill O’Reilly?” Letterman asked, egging on the Get Hard star.
“No, I’ve never met him,” replied Ferrell.
“That’s too bad seems happy-go-lucky,” Letterman joked.
“Just a real charmer,” said Ferrell. “I don’t know what he was doing there if he wasn’t a fan of Saturday Night Live maybe he’s just a student of comedy.”
