LAFC co-owner Will Ferrell showed up on the "Men in Blazers" TV show on Monday, wearing an Los Angeles Football Club scarf while co-host Michael Davies wore an LAFC baseball cap.

Ostensibly, Ferrell was on to promote his newest movie, "Zoolander 2," but he also discussed his involvement in the MLS expansion team and cracked several jokes during the appearance.

After clarifying his "diehard" Chelsea fan status was perhaps a bit overstated and explaining his role in getting Jose Mourinho (eventually) fired at the London club, attention turned to LAFC.

Ferrell discussed how he got involved through another LAFC owner, Larry Berg, which he answered seriously. Then, he was asked what his approach as owner would be.

"I'm going to be cold and distant, and show up at very inopportune times, and shout, berate players in the middle of games, that sort of thing," he joked.

When co-host Roger Bennett asked how the new club would appeal to Los Angeles, Ferrell had his talking points down, declaring, "I know how we're going to do it -- a brand new, soccer-only stadium, built right next to the Coliseum, adjacent to downtown -- get ready.

"By the way, it's going to take awhile, because I have to build it. And I don't know anything about construction," he quipped.
