Will Ferrell’s comedic range never ceases to amaze me: he’s at once 100 percent convincing as the most naïve, cheerful kid on the planet (i.e. Elf, which will be on cable TV daily until 2012 rolls around, probably) and as a supreme womanizing douchebag (i.e. Wedding Crashers, which will be on cable TV daily until the end of time).

A new flick, however, is giving him the opportunity to expand his acting chops to a new language. A new trailer was released for Casa de mi Padre, a full-length all-Spanish comedy that also stars Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna. The film centers on Armando Alvarez (Ferrell), who works as a rancher in Mexico before his brother Raul (Luna) arrives back at the ranch both richer and with a fiancée in tow. Cue the obvious love triangle: Alvarez falls for his brother’s fiancée, and all of them become embroiled in a huge war with a Mexican drug lord (Bernal). Hooray!

Take a look at the new teaser below. Ferrell’s accent is almost convincing!

    the phrase “expanding his acting chops” and will ferrell should never be used in the same sentence. he’s essentially the same stupid character in every movie he’s in.
