PEKIN, Ill. — Will Ferrell, the beloved comedian and Emmy-winning producer, made a surprise stop in Pekin, Illinois, while filming his untitled road trip documentary.
The 55-year-old was seen at Maquet’s Rail House in central Illinois, accompanied by a camera crew this week. Later Ferrell visited The Basket Case in Peoria, where he took selfies and even sang karaoke.
Ferrell’s road trip documentary has taken him to several states, including Indiana and Washington D.C. On Monday, he was spotted at multiple locations in Indiana before attending an NBA game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Indiana Pacers.
But it wasn’t just Indiana and Illinois that Ferrell visited. The Beech Grove Walmart parking lot in Indiana also played host to the star and his production team on Sunday night. This Walmart has somewhat of a notorious reputation in the Indianapolis area, having been the site of a viral fight in 2015 and multiple gunshots fired in the past two years.
While locals in Pekin and Peoria were surprised and excited to see Ferrell, it’s unclear when the documentary will be released. Nonetheless, fans are eagerly anticipating the debut of the comedian’s latest project.
