Will Ferrell Discusses That Infamous 'Daddy's Home' Basketball Scene!

Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell step out on the red carpet to premiere their new film Daddy’s Home at the Savoy Cinema on Monday (December 7) in Dublin, Ireland.

The day before, the two stars of the film were seen doing more promo work in the area.

Will recently opened up about the famous basketball scene in the movie, where he slams a cheerleader in the face with a ball.

“Oh, at the Laker game! Yeah, that basketball scene. The one that was all over YouTube. No, that was a blast. I don’t know if Mark’s — I don’t know if you’ve ever done anything [like that]. I’ve had a taste of that with Talladega Nights where we had a small window where we actually got to shoot at the race and you only get a certain amount of takes and people don’t know what’s about to happen. We had six minutes there [at the Lakers game] at half time to do this thing and prior to that, the front part of the scene where the kids are getting to meet Kobe, so that energy and that momentum of having to do that that night was spectacular. The crowd fell right in line with not knowing what was going to happen and there I am drunk, in front of this crowd, so that was great. It’s nice to – you know, you always write those scenes and you usually can’t get the parties involved to cooperate for whatever reason but to get to shoot at an NBA game and get to do all these things and have it all fall into place is so great for a movie like this,” Will told Collider.

FYI: Mark is wearing Timberland boots.
