Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg To Throw Around The Ol' Pigskin, Shriek At Each Other in Turkey Bowl

Nascar. Basketball. Ice Skating. Soccer. The never-ending battle for hearts of the American public. Will Ferrell has dominated every sport he's set his mind to, so of course it was only a matter of time before he took on football. Ferrell joins Wahlberg in Warner Bros' Turkey Bowl, which stars The Other Guys duo as "guys from football-obsessed towns who lead rival teams in an annual tackle football game for bragging and trash-talking rights." I don't know about you, but I've really missed Rage Ferrell, and I'm looking forward to a lot of red-faced meltdowns in his future. Alec Baldwin is already set to play Mark Wahlberg's father, and Deadline reports the gridiron itself will likely be packed with cameos, a la the trident-heavy newscaster brawl in Anchorman. Then onto male gymnastics? Dressage? Buzkashi?

    I say we have Will Ferrell do jai alai next. It would be funniest because everyone will say "wtf is jai alai?" I'd say cricket but I don't want to hear Ferrell's British accent.
