Will Ferrell killed the sports comedy

And he's finished with shooting comedies in the sports genre.
Will Ferrell is giving up athletics — at least in movies.
"I will no longer attempt to do any sports movie, anymore. Any sports," Ferrell said Friday before playing in a charity golf tournament hosted by one of his fraternity brothers from Southern California.

Ferrell was dressed almost as if he could step right into a golf movie.

"No, no golf movie. Yeah, I'm retired from sports-genre films. You know, I think I filled my quota," Ferrell said.
Maybe this isn't a bad thing. Anchorman was a great film. Step Brothers was way better than Semi-Pro.

This could be a good thing for Will Ferrell so he can focus on his work and Anchorman 2, which is in development.

Will Ferrell is on my to-watch list with regards to the late night shows...but lately, I've left the theater thinking: what was he thinking?!?
