Who’s your favorite Mexican actor? You might say Will Ferrell. That’s right, the comedic actor tackles what he calls a ‘Mexican Spaghetti Western’ in his next project Casa de mi Padre. And he enlists none other than the very popular Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, and newcomer Genesis Rodriguez.
We sat with the stars in New York where we discovered that Mr. Ferrell had, for no reason in particular, always thought it would be ‘fun’ to do a film ‘like’ a Telenovela; Mr. Gael Garcia Bernal enjoyed the freedom of improvisation; and Ms. Rodriguez ‘taught’ Mr. Ferrell the ever-so famous ‘dramatic pause’ of the world of soap operas. And did we mention the movie is in Spanish? Yes, Will Ferrell performs in our native tongue…and does a pretty good job. We had a chance to speak to the cast as well as Director, Matt Piedmont, and Writer Andrew Steele. Check it out.
