Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre opens Friday March 16 in theatres nationwide.
Ferrell plays a Mexican rancher named Armando Alvarez in this homage to telenovelas. His character only speaks Spanish the entire film.
Casa de mi Padre also stars Diego Luna, Gael García Bernal, the muy caliente Genesis Rodriguez and Ron F*cking Swanson…aka Nick Offerman.
Ferrell says of the project:
“I don’t remember when I got the idea and there was really no good reason, but I always had the notion of doing a Spanish language comedy. I do not speak Spanish but I thought the concept of having someone who is – depending on who you talk to – either fairly well known or kind of well-known in American language film – placed in a foreign language film would be something you don’t see every day.”
Here’s the trailer:
