    Will Ferrell Sings, Rides, Says Hola In Casa de Mi Padre

Handsome, wide-shouldered, and with a movie-star smile, he’s tough enough to have done some Very Bad Things, but also principled enough to be retired by the time we meet him. Chris is an ex-drug smuggler, and the life doe...

    Watch: Will Ferrell Is Still Hilarious In Spanish, Trailer For 'House Of My Father'

    We have to say, we're pretty impressed by Will Ferrell's ability to speak Spanish, and while we were initially a little bit in the dark about what this mysterious project, "Casa de mi padre" (aka "House of My Father") -- a front-to-back Spanish language comedy featuring the funnyman -- would turn ou...
