Will FerrellWILL Ferrell wants to play Simom Cowell on the big screen.

The Anchor Man star says he’s dream role would be portraying the music mogul in a movie.

“I would love to play Simon Cowell in a movie — heck, I would love it,” Ferrell said.

“It would be my dream role. He’s become a legend in five years.

“Nobody in the States knew who he was five years ago and now he is one of the most famous people on TV. It wouldn’t be that hard for me to play him because I see a lot of Ron Burgundy in Simon Cowell.

“Like Simon, Ron was the biggest thing on TV, loved himself and had that whole irresistible middle-aged man thing going on. I could play Simon, but to be honest, Simon could play Ron.

“They are like long-lost twin brothers separated at birth. Simon Cowell and Ron Burgundy are pretty much the same role, apart from Simon being ruder.”
