Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal have reunited once again for the new Will Ferrell comedy, “Casa de Mi Padre.” The flick looks hysterical. Will speaking in Spanish and acting like a tough rancher and those two guys showing off their much underused funny bones should lead to many risas (that’s laughs in Spanish for you Gringos).
This reteaming makes me happy for a number of reasons. One, it means that I can follow-up on that dinner that Gael owes me when we inevitably meet again. Two, it means that we get to see them in a flick together again. And, three, it means that I perhaps may get the assignment to interview them at the junket.
The last time the three of us sat in a room together, we laughed, chatted about their 2009 joint endeavor, “Rudo Y Cursi” and, oh yeah, we all kissed. It’s more or less what it sounds like.
We were just talking about life and films and kissing (the two guapos famously locked lips in “Y Tu Mama Tambien”), when at the end of the interview, Diego asked for a kiss. In the context of the chat, it all made sense. And, in the context of my life, it all made sense.
Who knows if they will kiss in “Casa de Mi Padre” (I’m guessing probably not) or if we’ll all hang again later this year when the Matt Piedmont directed film drops, but here’s to hoping and reminiscing. And laughing a lot as we watch and re-watch the trailer a few more times. “No hablo American,” my friends.
Wish Jocelyn luck on her quest to reunite with the “Casa De Mi Padre” stars in the comments section and on Twitter!
