Will Ferrell is reuniting with “Wedding Crashers” stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in the upcoming comedy “The Internship,” though at least they won’t be crashing funerals this time around. Instead, Ferrell will reportedly be playing a home electronics salesman who really, really loves the ladies, though he doesn’t necessarily rev their engines as much as he might like.
Variety broke the news about Ferrell’s inclusion, adding that he’ll play the brother-in-law to Wilson’s character. According to the outlet, Ferrell’s character “has no problem making inappropriate comments about his attractive customers.” Sounds like something the “Anchorman” star can handle with ease.
The role will be a cameo of the same size and importance as his part in “Wedding Crashers.” In that film, he played a mentor to Wilson and Vaughn’s titular wedding crashers who later teaches them that they should crash funerals instead. Those scenes ended up being some of the most memorable moments of the 2005 comedy.
Appropriately, this is the first time Wilson and Vaughn have reteamed since “Wedding Crashers” as well. In “The Internship” they play two unemployed old-school salesmen who try to reinvent themselves by taking internships at a major tech company. Hilarity then ensues.
Ferrell joins an already stacked cast. “The Internship” also stars Max Minghella, Rose Byrne, John Goodman, Dylan O’Brien, JoAnna Garcia, Eric Andre, Josh Brener, Tiya Sircar, Aasif Mandvi, Tobit Raphael and Josh Gad. Shawn Levy is tapped to direct the comedy. It’s been filming since June and is due in theaters on June 28, 2013.
