Will Ferrell + Mark Wahlberg: Hilarious Comedy Duo? How is it possible that of all the over-the-top characters Will Ferrell has played on the big screen, he's never been a policeman? That's about to change, though, as Sony has just picked up the rights to The B Team, a buddy comedy about a pair of cops. The other cop? Mark Wahlberg. It's an interesting choice because a lot of his recent comedy experience has been as the butt of jokes on Saturday Night Live (though he was pretty amusing poking fun at himself for it later).
