Will Ferrell: Hello. You the
new butler?
John C. Reilly: Ha ha. Well, it's been a
long time since I was the
John C. Reilly: new anything.
Will Ferrell: What's happened
to Hudson?
John C. Reilly: I guess he's
Will Ferrell: Yeah, he does that
a lot doesn't he?
Will Ferrell: Oh, I'm David Bowie.
I live down the road.
John C. Reilly: Oh.
Will Ferrell: Sir Percival lets me use the
piano when he's not around.
Will Ferrell: He's not around
is he?
John C. Reilly: I can honestly say I haven't seen him,
John C. Reilly: but come on in.
Go ahead. Come on in.
Will Ferrell: Are you related to
Sir Percival?
John C. Reilly: Well, distantly.
Will Ferrell: Oh, you're not the poor
relation from America, right?
John C. Reilly: Ha ha. Gee, news sure
travels fast. I'm Bing.
Will Ferrell: Pleased to meet you.
You're the one that sings, right?
John C. Reilly: Well, right or wrong,
I sing either way.
Will Ferrell: Well, I sing
John C. Reilly: Oh good!
What kind of singing.
Will Ferrell: Mostly contemporary stuff.
Do you like modern music?
John C. Reilly: Oh, I think it's
John C. Reilly: Some of it's really fine.
But, tell me, do you ever
John C. Reilly: listen to any of
the older fellas?
Will Ferrell: Oh yeah, sure, I like John Lennon
and the other one with
Will Ferrell: the Harry Nilsson.
John C. Reilly: Oh, you go back
that far, eh?
Will Ferrell: Yeah, I'm not as
young as I look.
John C. Reilly: None of us is,
these days.
Will Ferrell: In fact, I've got a six
year old son and he really
Will Ferrell: gets excited around the
Christmas holiday thing.
John C. Reilly: Do you go in for any of
the traditional things in
John C. Reilly: the Bowie household at
Christmas time?
Will Ferrell: Oh yeah, most of them
really. Presents. Tree.
Will Ferrell: Decorations. Agents
sliding down the chimney.
John C. Reilly: What?
Will Ferrell: I was just seeing if you
were paying attention.
John C. Reilly: Ha ha.
Will Ferrell: Actually, our family does
most of the
Will Ferrell: things other families do.
Sing the same songs.
John C. Reilly: Do you?
Will Ferrell: I even have a go at
White Christmas.
John C. Reilly: You do, eh?
Will Ferrell: And this one, this is my
son's favorite.
Will Ferrell: Do you know
this one?
John C. Reilly: Oh, I do indeed.
That's a lovely thing.
