Interview: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes talk ‘The Other Guys’

By Sean O’Connell

HollywoodNews.com: Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg?

OK, so the “Saturday Night Live” veteran and the Oscar-nominated star of “The Departed” aren’t the first people you’d think to pair in an action vehicle. Unless, of course, you are Adam McKay, director of Sony’s upcoming action-comedy hybrid, “The Other Guys,” in which case the idea tickles you pink.

In the film, which opens Aug. 6, Ferrell and Wahlberg are NYPD officers with polar opposite personalities who must overcome their differences if they’re going to apprehend a white-collar criminal (played by Steve Coogan). The actors sat down with co-stars Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, and director McKay for an interview with a handful of journalists. HollywoodNews.com was there, and we’ve got the exclusive video of this “Other Guys” event.
