Watch Will Ferrell tell me why he’s in a Spanish-language movie playing a Mexican rancher…

March 16th, 2012 by Rick Marshall · No Comments ·

Yes, I know it’s almost 5am right now, but I just got back from the set of the movie I’ve been visiting the past few days, and noticed that the first segment from my interview with Will Ferrell about his new movie “Casa de mi Padre” was published today.

If you haven’t read about my encounter with Will at the junket, you should do so now. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Okay, all caught up? Good.

Here’s the video segment and an excerpt from the article:

It’s probably no surprise that celebrated Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal was a little confused when he first saw the synopsis for “Casa de mi Padre,” a Spanish-language movie filmed in America and starring Will Ferrell as a Mexican rancher named Armando Alvarez.

“There was something I didn’t get at the beginning,” recalled Bernal. “I thought there was some mistake.”

Part homage to classic telenovela dramas and part parody of telenovelas and stylized spaghetti Westerns, “Casa de mi Padre” is a difficult film to lump into any specific category — and that’s the way Ferrell likes it.

“I love the fact that it raises that question: Why?” he laughed.

“Casa de mi Padre” hits theaters today, so check it out. It’s a very, very funny film.
