“The Office” alum Steve Carell has been making the rounds promoting “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” and just like Will Ferrell, he’s been doing it in a way to honor his news anchor character. Instead of hosting the news like Ron Burgundy, Carell took some time while visiting ITV’s “Daybreak” to promote his role.

He took over for weather reporter Laura Tobin as he learned the different symbols used on a British weather map. “You’re all over the place!” he ribs her. “This is the hardest job in the world!”

Carell’s “Anchorman” character Brick Tamland wouldn’t have been able to handle that much stimulation, despite being a weather reporter himself, so good on Carell for keeping it together. Too many loud noises, and Brick is pretty much useless. And put a lamp in front of him? Good luck trying to have a conversation.

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” hits theaters on Dec. 18.
