THE OTHER GUYS Press Conference Featuring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton and Director Adam McKay

     August 2, 2010

There are two very important things to know about writer/director Adam McKay’s (Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers) The Other Guys:

1. The movie is extremely funny.

2. While press conferences are usually terrible, The Other Guys press conference was one of the best I’ve covered in five years.

Thankfully, Sony let me video tape the entire thing, so you can watch Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton and Director Adam McKay do improv for about 40 minutes with hysterical results. The thing to know about press conferences is, no matter how good they are, the studios never let you use video, and trying to write up great back and forth banter is nearly impossible.  But now that the studios are finally taking a more 21st Century approach to interviews (i.e. letting us use video), I’m optimistic this is a sign of things to come.

Trust me when I say, if you’re a fan of Will Ferell and Adam McKay movies, you REALLY want to watch this press conference.  Especially since they talk about how to keep your pimp hand strong and when asked what they’re favorite cop movies are…the answers are awesome.  Also, make sure to watch Wahlberg’s reactions to some of the questions and answers…it’s priceless.

Finally, look for more interviews with the cast of The Other Guys every day this week.  I’ve got exclusive interviews with Adam McKay, Will Ferell and Mark Wahlberg
