From the GATW Archives: Guns! Special effects! Slaps! Here’s the first trailer for the Will Ferrell Spanish comedy, CASA DE MI PADRE

Posted on April 14, 2011 on GATW.

This is a rare find. I was looking at GATW’s past interviews on YouTube and stumbled on the trailer for the now-titled Will Ferrell Spanish comedy, CASA DE MI PADRE (HOUSE OF MY FATHER). It appears very official and not bootlegged from a theater, but I’m not sure how it found its way online without any other outlet posting.

Nothing else is known about this film, but according to IMDb, “Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiancé, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).”

This trailer promises guns! Special Effects! Slaps! And Will Ferrell speaking only Spanish. Check it out after the break. CASA DE MI PADRE also stars Spanish favorites Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, and there’s no release date at this time.

Here is a list of things Rusty (Gordon) and I experienced on our road trip to interview Will Ferrell. Some good, some bad, some together, and some separate.

Six A.M. road trip (216 miles) from Dallas to Austin. Heavy rain and thunder. Lady losing a tire when the highway forms into one lane forcing our drive time to extend another 40 minutes. Guacamole cheese dip. Sharing an elevator with Lisa Kudrow. In the car for six hours on a 12 hour trip.

Well worth the trouble. I’d do it all over again.
