Casting Room: Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, Take Two


Before new shows and movies are on your radar, they’re being planned, executed, and put into motion by production teams far and wide. Each week, Glam is going to give you the rundown on your favorite celebrities and their new gigs, from Hollywood’s rising stars to Broadway’s top talents. Welcome to the Casting Room.

The Other Guys are teaming up again. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, who first starred together in the 2010 comedy, are giving the silver screen another go with Paramount Pictures. This time around, they’re pairing up as foes, battling it out for the affection of kids: Ferrell, the mild-mannered radio exec whose gains with his two stepchildren are thwarted when their freeloading dad, played by Wahlberg, comes back to town, according to Deadline. Let the hijinks ensue.
