Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg vie for the title of Greatest Dad in the forthcoming Daddy’s Home (also known as the film where this happened). The film reunites the two actors, who previously costarred in the 2010 comedy, The Other Guys.
Ferrell plays Brad, a stodgy, mild-mannered radio executive, struggling to be a good stepfather to his wife’s (played by Linda Cardellini) two children. Wahlberg plays Dusty, a motorcycle-riding badass (a clear foil to Brad’s character) and the biological father of said two children, who complicates Brad’s plight when he plans a visit.
The film also stars Thomas Haden Church, Hannibal Buress, and Paul Scheer. Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio also makes an appearance.
Daddy’s Home is directed by Sean Anders and John Morris, best known for penning the screenplay to the 2010 comedy, Hot Tub Time Machine. It’ll be released on December 25th.
