Someone at ShoWest snagged some footage of the new Adam McKay directed comedy the Other Guys starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. I’m really digging how Marky Mark is the Cash to Ferrell’s Tango. Sure, Wahlberg is playing another ramrod cop, but don’t fix it if it ain’t broke, yaknowwhatI’msayin’? And Ferrell wears glasses in this film, which I haven’t seen him sport in awhile. As long as he doesn’t do the whole man-child act again, I’ll sit in another darkened theater with him. Here’s some context for all you brainiacs:
The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Marky Mark), a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Sam Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
Check out the teaser footage below.
