    Will Ferrell Reveals His Favorite Celeb Impression (Hint: It's Scrumtrulescent!)

    Our exclusive coverage of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, well, continues!

    In the latest clip from our E! News special with hilarious costars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, Ferrell gets a special message from Inside the Actors Studio host James Lipton, who Ferrell famously parodied during his days on Saturday Night Live.

    "I've got a question for Will Ferrell," Lipton says in a special video clip. "Who's your most scrumtrulescent impression? Take your time. I'm here, as modest and unassuming and scrumtrulescent as ever."

    For those of you out there who don't know, ‘scrumtrulescent' is the funny fictional word Ferrell made up in one of his famed James Lipton sketches when he couldn't find the words to describe a stellar acting performance.

    "Good ‘ole Jimmy Lipton," Ferrell says. "I mean, I'm going to have to say James Lipton. But I won't. Nope, I'm not going to give him the satisfaction.

    Ferrell adds, "My best impression, that I'm most known for, that I get a lot of people is Janet Reno, former U.S. Attorney General. There's not an airport in the country where people aren't like, ‘There she goes!'"

    For more from the cast, tune in for the E! Entertainment special, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, hosted by E! News' Giuliana Rancic, premiering Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
