If you're like me, you're always waiting for Will Ferrell to top himself. He's a great improv actor, albeit one who could be deemed a "ball hog" (if you know your basketball terms), but he knows how to entertain an audience and bring in the box office bucks. This winter he'll be returning for another sports-related comedy, Semi-Pro, in which he plays Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-player of the ABA's Flint Michigan Tropics. A new teaser for the film has arrived over on Funny or Die and, while there's not much, we do get a nice slice of Ferrell's naked body. (Warning: Eat before watching, unless hairy guys with a gut turn you on.)
Based on the teaser, it seems Ferrell's tapping back into some of his Ricky Bobby material from Talladega Nights, only take that character, place him right smack in the middle of the 70s, and give him a giant afro. Personally, Ferrell just makes me laugh no matter what he's doing; some are tired of his shtick, but I can't get enough of it. If he can surround himself with some decent comedic talent -- folks he'll allow to step up and share some of the spotlight -- then I can certainly see this flick becoming a winner. Co-starring with Ferrell will be Woody Harrelson, Outcast's André Benjamin, Maura Tierney, Jackie Earle Haley, Andy Richter and, of course, how can you forget Will Arnett. Semi-Pro bounces into theaters on February 29, 2008 -- and you can check out the teaser above.
