LOS ANGELES - It takes a pretty good friend to don Speedo shorts and a superhero costume, but that's exactly what Will Ferrell has been known to do for one of his best friends, Pete Carroll.


Ferrell and Caroll first started hanging out together back at USC, when Pete was the head football coach and Will was a proud alum and booster.

When Coach wanted to prank his players, his movie star pal was all too happy to lend a hand.

Back in 2009, the tech-savvy coach returned the favor by helping show his funnyman friend how to take to Twitter.

When Los Angeles fans lamented Carroll's move to Seattle, Ferrell chose to cheer on his buddy's new team, becoming an ardent Seahawks supporter. He's even defended his beloved 'hawks from co-star dissenters, like Jets fan Will Arnett, and Patriots patron Mark Wahlberg.

It wasn't easy to be Will Ferrell when the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl.

"Tough game," said Farrell.

But when critics carped about a certain play call, it was Ferrell who went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to lip sync Disney's "Let It Go," a message to disgruntled fans to back off.

After all, that's what friends are for.
