The fantasy of a Step Brothers sequel has mostly been just that. Will Ferrell has vaguely suggested Step Brothers 2 isn’t an impossibility, but there’s no guarantee it’ll be coming our way either. Ferrell recently shared an early plot idea that was toyed with for a future Huff N Doback adventure and on paper it sounds like a pretty sensible direction for a sequel.
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.
It may seem as if Will Ferrell has no qualms about his body (ahem), but the comedian has some thoughts on body image that are equal parts funny and honest.
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.
Will Ferrell and Viveca with sons Axel (left) and Mattias. Will Ferrell has been leading a double life. The father of three showed off two of his sons, 5-year-old Axel and Mattias, 8, as well as his actress wife, Viveca Paulin, at the premiere of his latest comedy, Daddy’s Home, Sunday in New York.
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.
The Other Guys are about to turn on each other. Five years after their hit buddy-cop comedy, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg reunite in the new comedy Daddy’s Home. Watch the exclusive trailer.
