Mark Walhberg, a Dorchester Ma. native, has big clown shoes to fill starring alongside Will Ferrell in the action-comedy cop flick, The Other Guys, out August 6th. The two play bumbling second-rate NYPD cops who are constantly living in the shadow of detectives Christopher Dansen and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson). They finally get their chance to shine when they bust open a case that no one else wants and it turns out to be one of the biggest cases in New York history.
Add to the plot that Walhberg and Ferrel’s characters can’t get along to save their lives or the lives of others and the cosmic comedy stars are sure to align. Michael Keaton and Eva Mendes star, and Derek Jeter even makes a cameo appearance to give it a true New York City flair.
