TV3 weatherman’s fashion sense wins ‘praise’ from William Shatner

In yet more proof of how small the world can be, Hollywood icon William Shatner is apparently a massive fan of TV3 weather broadcasts.

The Star Trek legend took to Twitter yesterday to compare TV3 weatherman Deric Ó h'Artagáin to famous film character Derek Zoolander because of his somewhat flashy sense of style.

Ó h'Artagáin is known to surprise viewers with his daring choice of clobber, but hits home runs more often than not!

The weatherman took the comparison as the compliment and even invited the screen legend, who was most recently seen in Boston Legal, to appear on the TV3 weather with him.

We now await a response…

Here's Zoolander in action.

Zoolander 2 is due to be released in cinemas on February 12, 2016.
