Pelicans fans got a big surprise during the halftime of the Pelicans vs. Lakers game Wednesday, when film stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and Paul Scheer taped a scene from their upcoming movie “Daddy’s Home” in front of the crowd.
A comedy from Paramount Pictures, “Daddy’s Home” is scheduled to continue filming in New Orleans through Tuesday, Feb. 3. Ferrell and Wahlberg previously appeared together in the 2010 cop comedy “The Other Guys.”
In “Daddy’s Home,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, Ferrell plays a mild-mannered radio executive who wants to be a great stepdad for his wife’s two children from a previous marriage. But then the kids’ irresponsible biological dad, played by Wahlberg, shows up.
The film’s co-stars include Linda Cardellini, comedian Hannibal Buress and LaMonica Garrett. Sean Anders is directing.
