Who’s that Spartan hitting a cheerleader in the face?
It’s me Will Ferrell, it’s me Will Ferrell!
Fans were treated to a special half-time surprise during the Lakers/Pelicans game in New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center last night, Jan. 21, as the ‘SNL’ alum was brought down to try his hand at the half-court shot.
Only he epically failed and nailed a Pelican cheerleader in the face — before being tackled and escorted out of the arena!
Fortunately, no one was actually harmed in the making of this hilarious moment! The 47-year-old physical comedy king was filming a scene for his movie Daddy’s Home, which also stars Mark Wahlberg.
According to IMDb, the movie is about a mild-mannered man (Ferrell) who is determined to become the best stepdad ever to the children of his new wife (Linda Cardellini). This plan is disrupted when their unstable father (Wahlberg) reenters their life and wreaks havoc.
The movie is set to come out later this year — and based on this scene, we can’t wait to see it!
