My week seems to be all about Mr. Will Ferrell, his body hair and his upcoming film Semi-Pro. In this new sports comedy, Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, the self-promoting owner/coach/player of the ABA’s Flint Tropics. He is a former-singer turned basketball player who thinks more about the pregame promotions than he does about actually winning basketball games. I won’t spoil my review, but I can say that this is one of the balsier films that Ferrell and Co. have made in a while, more on par with the work they’ve done on FunnyOrDie.com than stuff like Talladega Nights.
Speaking of FunnyOrDie, have you checked out the FunnyOrDie Comedy Tour? It’s definitely a happenin’ time.
Back on subject, MTV has unsheathed a new 2 minute clip from Semi-Pro and we were glad to hit the ole’ “embed” button and bring it over to you. Check it out below. Semi-Pro hits theaters on February 29, 2008. For more, check out our press day teaser video, an exclusive chat with Will Ferrell, here.
