“Anchorman 2” star Steve Carell showed off his weather presenting skills after hijacking a broadcast on a U.K. TV show on Wednesday.

The funnyman, who plays weatherman Brick Tamland in the hit comedy and its new sequel, was being interviewed on morning news program “Daybreak” when he took his chance to tell viewers about the daily forecast.Interrupting the show’s meteorologist Laura Tobin during her segment, he explained Britain could expect heavy fog and clouds, before mocking the presenter, joking, “You’re all over the place! This is the hardest job in the world.”

It is not the first time Carell has taken over presenting duties on the show – in 2010, he gave viewers a muddled forecast, mistaking Europe for America.
