That’s the overriding message at the heart of the hilarious first clip from the upcoming sequel, Daddy’s Home 2, which you can watch exclusively above.
Will Ferrell on new comedy 'The House' pairing him with another former 'SNL' star, role for his 11-year-old son, kissing John Lithgow in 'Daddy's Home 2'
Twenty years ago today the comedy favorite Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion hit movie theaters, and to mark the anniversary the film’s director, David Mirkin, joined Yahoo Movies for a Facebook Live interview. Mirkin, also a key architect of The Simpsons, dropped all sorts of nostalgic nuggets about the film, which memorably paired Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow as clueless twentysomethings determined to fake their success at their 10-year reunion in Tucson, Arizona. One of the best tidbits came when Mirkin recounted how he convinced Will Ferrell to make a cameo in the film, only to cut the scene following a test screening.
Will Ferrell is set to push his acting skills to the limit as he’s reportedly in talk to play Kanye West in a biopic that’s been approved by the rapper. Kanye West isn’t just interested in Will Ferrell for the film, though, because he also wants comedy heavyweight director Adam McKay to oversee it. Especially since McKay previously worked with Ferrell at ‘Saturday Night Live’ and on ‘Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy’, ’Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’, ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby’, ‘The Other Guys’, and ‘Step Brothers’, too.
News that Will Ferrell is set to play the late former president Ronald Reagan has been met with fury by his family. The movie, which was taken from the Black List, the annually published list of the best un-produced screenplays in Hollywood, tells a fictional story of a White House intern who is tasked with convincing Reagan that he is actually an actor in a movie when dementia begins to set in. Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 1994, however, there has long been speculation that he showed early signs of the disease during the latter part of his presidency, which ended in 1989.
Typically when users post questions on the Yahoo Answers forum, they’re intended for other members of the knowledge-seeking community to weigh in on. But every once in a while we figure why not take the questions straight to the query subjects themselves? We brought some to the cast of new comedy sequel Zoolander 2.
There’s no Greek mythology term for what Derek is in this new spot for Zoolander 2. Instead of depicting a Centaur (half horse, half man) — or even a merman, as he’s done before — the aging male model (Ben Stiller) is part cow in his new fragrance ad for Zoolander No. 2 (seen at the :21 mark in the new spot above). Harkening back to his Aveda ad in the 2001 original, in which he portrayed a proud MERMAN!, this time Derek has a commercial co-star in supermodel Naomi Campbell.
The stars of the hit comedy Daddy’s Home, which made a very solid $40 million in its opening weekend (just behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens), spoke with Yahoo Movies earlier this month about their own child-rearing philosophies. Will Ferrell — who plays a dopey stepdad to Mark Wahlberg’s badass biological father in the movie — jokingly embraced the age-old tactic of spanking. Appropriately for their characters in the film, his costar Wahlberg did not find Ferrell’s threats all that intimidating. (Watch the video above.)
Ho, ho… oh no. In this exclusive clip from the forthcoming Christmastime comedy Daddy’s Home, Will Ferrell plays a bad Santa. He stars as a radio exec named Brad who has just married the woman of his dreams: Sara, played by Linda Cardellini. The thing is, she has two children from a previous relationship with a freewheeling guy named Dusty (Mark Wahlberg), who hasn’t been around much… until now. Trying to shake off Dusty, Brad vies for the attention of his stepkids — at the expense of their unreliable birth dad.
They’ve built a full-scale suburban household — complete with a surrounding white picket fence — within the dark confines of a large soundstage at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in suburban New Orleans. Sure, the lawn is Astroturf, but the whole setup feels so homey you half-expect someone to start firing up burgers and dogs in the fake house’s fake backyard barbeque.
When Will Ferrell acted like a drunken fool and drilled a cheerleader in the head (more on that below) with a basketball at an NBA game last month, he didn’t expect it to be that big of a deal. “For some reason, I still have blinders on when we do things like that,” Ferrell told Yahoo Movies last week when we asked if the production had anticipated fan footage of the scene going viral. In the movie, Ferrell plays Brad, a sweet-natured radio exec who treasures being a stepfather to his new wife’s two children.
