Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are presidental running mates for 2012

12.06.2010

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are both running for president. At least on the big-screen they will be.

Warner Bros. nabbed up the untitled political comedy that Jay Roach (AUSTIN POWERS, DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS) will be directing. The screenplay comes from Chris Henchy (THE OTHER GUYS) and Shawn Harwell (EASTBOUND & DOWN). Ferrell and Galifianakis are set to star. The project will be produced by Ferrell and Adam McKay through their Gary Sanchez Productions banner, Roach through his Everyman Pictures banner, and Galifianakis.

The actors will play rival candidates with the film timed for release during the 2012 elections.

Ferrell has already spent quite some time playing former president George W. Bush. Galifianakis played a president as well, but only in dreams. In VISIONEERS, he starred as George Washington Winsterhammerman, descendant of George Washington. The dreams have him prancing around as our first president, complete with the powdered wig.

will be funny

I have no doubts it will be funny, but would love to see it played as a really dark, crude movie. Instead of Ferrell playing his typical self, I'd like to see his character as more of a dick, with the wink wink nudge nudge type stuff...basically his car dealer character from Eastbound and Down but with more attitude, just a really big asshole.

Ferrell? Galifianakis? Roach?

I'm in. All three know how deliver the laughs, so I'm looking forward to this one.

So, will Ferrell be doing his Bush impersonation? I'm pretty sure he'll be the Republican while Zach will be the Democrat. I can't say I'm terribly excited for this movie. Then again, I was pleasantly surprised by The Other Guys but I don't really like Zach all that much so I guess I'll just wait and see.

This will be "hilarious", no doubt about it. I know this because Will Ferrell pulls faces and Zach Galifianakis is chubby.

Galifianakis ruined Due Date. He makes his characters so idiotic, overly awkward, and completely unlikable that I really can't stand him in movies. Talk about going full retard.

I don't know. In my opinion, both these two have gotten less talented and more annoying as time goes on. I can allready see the improv scenes where Ferrell takes something and smashes it on the ground.

Guess which guy will play the same character... again?!

Both of them will, which is okay when they are like the 3rd or 4th character in line (wedding crashers, hangover, old school), but I think everyone I know is tired of these guys playing the same stupid character (literally, they just play stupid people), especially will ferrell. I hope I am wrong, and at least the writers make it a little more promising.

I'd rather have one of these two cool guys as our Nations leader,than the phony who is currently in office-let alone some Anti-Christ policy legislating Republican.

Mehh.....

Unless a trailer can convince me it's a good thing, I'll pass. Ferrell has been hit and miss since "Anchorman" though I enjoyed "The Other Guys" but "Due Date" sucked. Zach G. is growing tiring and old.

All the haters can keep on hating. I still think Ferrell can bring it. I also think Zach G is a comedic genius. These two improvising together will be awesome. Plus, both the writers are amazing. I'm totally down for this.

Get rid of one of these guys and replace with Tina Fey doing her Sarah Palin impersonation. That is comedy gold.

Sounds like a dud. Just like that other shitty movie with Chris Rock and Bernie Mac. It's the same damn movie and is just as unfunny a formula.

No Mas!

I literally own movies like Anchorman, The Hangover and Semi-Pro on DVD. So, this is coming from a somewhat fan and I have to say that both these guys have worn out their welcome with me. I'm just tired of their mannerisms and their same old act. Step Brothers, Land of The Lost, Due Date... NO MAS!

With these two as the leads, I can see this getting alot of laughs.

Vice President for Ferrell = John C. Reily. For Galifinakis = Paul Rudd.
