The `Anchorman` star wants to buy his own traditional English inn close to the west London home of his favourite soccer team, Chelsea, and believes the venture would provide great movie-making inspiration.
The 42-year-old actor said: "All the Chelsea players would be welcome, but I wouldn`t want a celebrity place, it would be an old-fashioned pub.
"I would be hands on. I could get some great material off all the regulars. I am sure there would be a film in it."
Will said that, while some American bars try to emulate the cosy pub atmosphere, you have to go to the UK to find the real thing.
He added: "Over-priced fish and chips does not constitute a real British pub."
The funnyman - who has two sons with wife Viveca Paulin and is expecting a third in January - will be hoping the drinks in his planned pub are better than his experiences in Sweden for a TV special he filmed with survival expert Bear Grylls.
The `Stepbrothers` star said: "It was the thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine drunk, which is sad."
