WASHINGTON — 'I spy with my little eye' famously known comedic actor Will Ferrell, who had his cover blown when he was spotted at a Southwest, D.C. museum Sunday morning.
Ferrell, known for roles in movies such as Elf, Step Brothers, and Daddy's Home, took on a new character: museum goer. He showed up at the International Spy Museum, located on L'Enfant Plaza Southwest, and it's still a bit of a mystery as to why.
But, the museum did post a photo on their Facebook and Twitter pages with the caption: "His cover is blown. Look who spied on us today! Our favorite funnyman Will Ferrell pictured with Spy Museum's historian Andrew Hammond. Thanks for spying on us, agents!"
According to the museum's website, it "lifts the veil of secrecy on the hidden world of intelligence, exploring its successes and failures, challenges, and controversies." Their mission is to create exhibitions and other learning experiences that shed some light on the 'shadow world of espionage' as well as intelligence. It also educates and challenges people to engage critically with the complex world around us.
