Will Ferrell’s ‘Padre’ welcomes ‘Mama’s’ Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna

HollywoodNews.com: Will Ferrell’s Spanish language comedy “Casa de mi padre” is getting very serious in its casting, attracting the talents of dramatic actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, the duo who starred together in “Y tu mama tambien.”

Matt Piedmont is directing “Casa.” The film’s plot is being kept secret: all the media knows is that “Casa” is in the vein of a comedic telenovela with English subtitles.

Rounding out the cast are Genesis Rodriguez as Ferrell’s romantic interest, Pedro Armendariz Jr., Hector Jimenez and Adrian Martinez.

Garcia Bernal plays a family friend; Luna is Ferrell’s brother. Bernal is also known for his work in “The Motorcycle Diaries” while Luna was last seen in Gus van Sant’s “Milk.”

Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions is behind the film. The label recently opened The R-rated microbudget comedy “The Virginity Hit” in select cities today. Like “Casa,” “Hit” is another example of Gary Sanchez stretches its comedic muscle. Plot is similar to “American Pie,” whereby a teen loses his virginity to a hot girl while his friends soak it up, voyeurism style.

Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly compliments “Hit”: The cast gets some room to improv, and the home-video style — call it blockbuster mumblecore? — works cleverly because it emerges right out of the everyone’s-an-exhibitionist YouTube age.”

The Hollywood Reporter had the news on “Casa.”
