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). But I could see him playing the uptight, serious cop to Ferrell's swaggerin' man who doesn't care about the rules.
Not much is known about the story yet, but Adam McKay is back as Ferrell's director. A while back, a lot of you said you had Will Ferrell fatigue, but does the idea of pairing him with Wahlberg seem like a refreshing change?
