Mark Wahlberg stars in the new comedy Daddy’s Home, a film that follows radio executive Brad Taggart (Will Ferrell) as he competes for the love of his step kids when their biological father Dusty (Wahlberg) re-enters the family picture.

The movie marks a reunion for Ferrell and Wahlberg after the two treated viewers to a comical on-screen performance in 2010’s The Other Guys. In Home, their odd coupling will once again leave moviegoers in stitches as they watch Wahlberg’s Dusty, the fun dad, interact with Ferrell’s Brad, the buttoned-up step-pop.

“We really like each other,” he tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest over the phone Thursday. “We’ve got great, natural chemistry and we have similar approach to the work. We both play it very straight and real.”

He adds, “He’s just a nice, sweet, kind guy and really fun to be around. He really enjoys making people laugh. He’s a family guy just like myself.”

Daddy’s Home is in theaters now.


Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg make for one of oddest on-screen duos around: the former one of Hollywood’s silliest comedic performers, the latter an intense, intimidating figure best known for his action roles. Perhaps the only thing they have in common is that they’ve both appeared on camera only in their tighty-whiteys — though in very different contexts and to very different effect.

Five years after first teaming up in director Adam McKay’s buddy-cop film “The Other Guys,” Ferrell, 48, and Wahlberg, 44, reunite in the comedy “Daddy’s Home,” in theaters on Christmas, with Ferrell playing Brad, an earnest, mild-mannered stepfather of two kids whose position in his family is threatened when Wahlberg’s alpha-male biological dad Dusty swoops back into town.

We talked to the two about their comedic chemistry, their parenting styles and which of them can do the most pull-ups (spoiler alert: Wahlberg).

After “The Other Guys,” were you two looking for something else to do together?

Ferrell: I was always thinking I’d love to do something with Mark again, but I don’t think we actively talked about it. And then this movie was pitched to us, and it was getting developed, and there just happened to be a window in Mark’s schedule. Notice I said “Mark’s schedule” — there’s great demand for Mark, not so much for me. [laughs]

We’d had some other machinations of how this movie could be cast; there was a point where I was going to play Dusty, and I was maybe going to do it with Ed Helms, and then that fell apart. But we were like, “Mark would be great as the dad that every male wants to be and is slightly afraid of.”

Wahlberg: I don’t know where that comes from. I mean, anybody who’s young and thinks they’re cool and hip doesn’t want to be like me. I love my life but going to bed at 10 o’clock at night, tucking the kids in and looking forward to getting to bed. … My two favorite times of my own during the day are when I finish at the gym and have a protein shake and when I get to bed.

You guys are both dads in real life. Will, you’ve got a goofy-fun-dad vibe, and, Mark, I think people would assume you’re the kind of dad who runs a tight ship.

Wahlberg: I am — if it starts getting a little crazy, I’m definitely the disciplinarian. I put my foot down. But we have a lot of fun too. My kids know that dad can be a bit of a pushover. I learn a lot from Will because he is patient. He tolerates a lot. He’s understanding. His kids will say a bad word or something and I’m like, “What?!!”

Ahead of the release of their very funny-looking new comedy, Daddy’s Home, Hollywood superstars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have announced that they’re coming to Dublin for the film’s Irish Premiere on Monday 7 December.

This isn’t just another press release or a bog-standard generic announcement though, because Will and Mark (yeah, we’re going for first-name terms here) have actually recorded this personal message for their Irish fans.

Daddy’s Home will be released in Irish cinemas on 26 December, just in time for you to hide the last of the Brussels sprouts dutifully eat the last of the Brussels sprouts, thank your Aunty Bina for the new socks, and head down to your local cinema for this very funny festive film. Looks like we’ve got ourselves a good old-fashioned Dad-off.


Ahead of its release next month, Paramount Pictures has debuted a new poster and two TV spots for Sean Anders and John Morris’ upcoming comedy Daddy’s Home starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Daddy’s Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Will Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Mark Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.

Daddy’s Home is set for release December 25th in the States and December 26th in the UK, with a cast that also includes Linda Cardellini and Thomas Haden Church.  []

It’s Will Ferrell versus Mark Wahlberg again, but this time, they’re dueling dads.

In Daddy’s Home, Ferrell plays Brad, the milquetoast stepfather to a pair of cute kids whose cool biological father Dusty (Wahlberg) brings candy and rides a motorcycle and sports a set of abs. Naturally, Brad tries to one-up Dusty’s masculinity, resulting in shenanigans like a disastrous Lakers game, a motorcycle mishap, and a thinly veiled argument in front of the children over whose sword is, um, longer. As Dusty puts it, it’s “an old-fashioned dad-off.”

Daddy’s Home hits theaters Christmas Day. Watch the latest trailer below:


When Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg last teamed up, for Adam McKay riotous cop comedy The Other Guys, the result was a genuinely hilarious film that shone a spotlight on the blossoming screen chemistry between the acting duo. Fast forward five years and we arrive at the pair’s next collaboration, Daddy’s Home; a family romp that has the two at odds with one another.

Playing the mild-mannered good guy is Ferrell, who tries to assimilate into a new family life with Linda Cardellini’s doting mother and her two children. But a step-father faces an uphill battle from the get-go when it comes to winning over young kids, and Ferrell’s job suddenly gets a whole lot worse when Mark Wahlberg’s father brings swagger and gifts back into his children’s lives – like Santa, with abs. What follows is an over-the-top war over affection, with the two leads continually one-upping each other, whether it’s building a treehouse or digging deep to perform their best bedtime stories.

Going off the most recent trailer for Daddy’s Home, it’s difficult to muster any form of excitement for the comedy. If the comic interplay between The Other Guys helped sell McKay’s film five years ago, the same can’t really be said for the pair’s new joint venture. Beyond physical humor, many of the jokes don’t really stick and though we hope we’re wrong, there are plenty of other films vying for your attention during this year’s crowded festive corridor.

Daddy’s Home will open on December 26. Sean Anders and John Morris are behind the lens.




The buddy comedy done right is hard to top. And we’ve seen both Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg nail “buddy comedy” time and again. But when these two are paired together – as we saw back in 2010 with “The Other Guys,” – it’s a match made in hell, with gullibly sweet Ferrell pushed to the brink by freewheeling badass Wahlberg.

In what looks to be the comedy event of the holiday season, Ferrell and Wahlberg are paired up again for Daddy’s Home , and we’re lucky enough to have a look at the exclusive new poster.

Ferrell nailed his turn as an immature man-child in “Stepbrothers,” and now he takes a stab at loveably pathetic stepdad, with a notably “cooler” Mark Wahlberg returning home as biological dad. What ensues is all-out warfare for child affection – and puppies, ponies, and straight up cash money are fair play.
