In the Ethan Cohen-directed comedy, Ferrell is millionaire James King, who turns to Hart’s Darnell Lewis to prep him for life in a maximum-security prison after he’s convicted for fraud.
“Teach me how to survive in prison the way you did,” Ferrell tells Hart.
“Tell me how you know I went to prison,” Hart says.
“Given your low economic status, your perceived lack of college education, statistically, you definitely went to prison,” Ferrell says. But despite Ferrell's biased assumption, Hart's character hasn't actually been to jail. He decides to teach King anyway.
From there, “prison school” is in session, with the comedic duo exploring a wide range of racial stereotypes for laughs.
“Get Hard,” which also features Alison Brie, Craig T. Nelson and T.I., is set to hit theaters on March 27, 2015.
