First Look: Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg in The Other Guys
Usually when we get the first set photos from a forthcoming film they're straight from a cell phone camera or clearly snapped at just the right moment where you can see just a bit of the lead actors faces. But some of these first shots (thanks to the awkwardly named blog Accidental Sexiness via Collider) from the NYC set of Adam McKay's cop comedy The Other Guys look like approved studio publicity shots. We get our first look at Ferrell (apparently the clean-cut type) and Wahlberg (the gritty cop) as well as Damon Wayans Jr. and Rob Riggle doing what he does best: yelling. Anyway, read on below for a look at some of the best shots.
The Other Guys is an action comedy directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights) who also wrote the script with Chris Henchy (Land of the Lost) following the seemingly mismatched pairing of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as police officers who can't see to measure up to the legendary law enforcement status achieved by the police department's two all-star cops, played by Sam Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. Filming will continue for a few more months. The Other Guys hits theaters next August.

I love it when good talent comes together in a great way. I hate when it completely backfires and becomes a huge waste. I'll keep my hopes up for this. Besides, I adore Samuel L.

A comedy...pass. Ferrell needs to do something like Stranger than Fiction again.

ADM-86, Apparently you are a beautiful individual snowflake separated from the ignorant masses. We are just so lucky that you have graced your presence on this site with the rest of us lowly scum……or you’re just self absorbed and the only thing that separates you from the so called masses is your lack of humor, overwhelming pessimistic outlook on things, that you actually belied your Mother when she told you “Your Unique”. Your oh so superior outlook will continue to spiral in a lonesome miserable life of shit. And I will laugh as I read your blogs of depression. Good luck! As far as the movie, not sure yet… It's definitely an odd mix up of characters that could go either way. I'll wait to judge.

Checkout Yankees.com. Apparently Derek Jeter has a cameo and plays an intriquel (sp?) part in the movie. It sounds interesting.

My daughter Brianna, 11, was in a scene for The Other Guys on October 8 in Jamaica, Queens. She also got an awesome pic taken with Will Ferrell. Can't wait for the movie to come out!

With Amereica now completely soldout and debauched to some of the most genocidal monsters of all time across the Pacific ---all Wahlberg et al -who've MADE their bucks- can turn out is more routine, macho-moron, comfort-zone shit.
