Look-alikes Will Ferrell and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers recently made the Metallica drummer their next drum-off target, and now Ulrich tells Spin magazine he's ready to bring it!  

Lars jokes that he felt left out of Ferrell and Smith's last drum battle on "The Tonight Show" because he considers himself to be a "dead ringer" for the duo.  He adds that with enough practice, he thinks he might be able to give Smith a run for his money. 

But Ferrell is the current champ, and Ulrich worries the Anchorman star may be "so beyond next level" that he's "completely unreachable." 

Ferrell and Smith faced each other last month on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."  Ferrell was obviously getting some help from an off-camera drummer, but still got the win by pulling out his secret weapon -- more cowbell.

After seeing Ulrich's willingness to get in the ring, Smith took to Facebook to share two pieces of advice: "Leave the double bass drums at home and load up on cowbells!"
