Anthony Hopkins bit into a comedic role when he was crowned Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year.

To earn the coveted brass pudding pot, the actor had to read a line from the 1991 thriller "The Silence of the Lambs" - while mimicking actors Sean Connery, Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson - don a wig and a bra, and defend one of his presenters from a man in a dragon suit.

After defeating the dragon, Hopkins pretended to use a plastic sword and pitchfork as a fork and knife.

The 63-year-old actor won an Oscar for his portrayal of the psychotic killer Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of Lambs." He also stars in the film's sequel, "Hannibal," now in theaters.
