“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.

Watchdog finds Pentagon broke law in Bergdahl transfer

This undated image provided by the U.S. Army shows Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. U.S. officials say the only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed and is in U.S. custody. The officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's (boh BURG'-dahl) release was part of a negotiation that includes the release of five Afghan detainees held in the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The Defense Department violated U.S. law by failing to alert Congress before releasing five Taliban members in exchange for a captured U.S. soldier.
