Opening this weekend is Will Ferrell’s Spanish language comedy Casa de mi Padre. The film centers on Ferrell as Armando Alvarez, a Mexican rancher who must save his family’s farm while simultaneously fending off the drug lord, Onza, played by Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) and winning the hand of the lovely Sonia, played by Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge). As Dave said, to sum it up in just a few words: passion, adventure, intrigue, betrayal, sex, danger, romance, guns, cigarettes, special effects and slaps. The film also stars Diego Luna, Efren Ramirez and Nick Offerman. For more on the film, here’s fourteen clips and a fifteen-minute making of featurette.
Recently, I got to speak with Diego Luna. During the interview he talked about how he got cast, how he always wanted to work with Will Ferrell, his favorite director, movie and actor, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
