If you know me, you know I am an unabashed fan of Will Ferrell. Hey! I saw Semi-Pro in the theater. I have credibility.

So when the teaser trailer for Ferrell’s Casa di mi Padre hit the web last week, it got an immediate thumbs up from me.

The trailer keeps it pretty close to the chest, but apparently Ferrell speaks in broken Spanish throughout the whole movie. The concept seems so totally bizarre, I can’t picture a scenario where it doesn’t work.

Need another reason to see this movie? Ron Swanson himself – Nick Offerman is in it. And it will be glorious.

I think what’s most hilarious about the movie is the synopsis. If you read it, the film comes across like your standard-issue telenovelas.

Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancée, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).

If they decide to play it completely straight, the comedy will basically come from the juxtaposition of seeing one of the whitest white men imaginable mix it up in this context. Kind of meta but totally brilliant. I’m on board.

Because I love you, I’m also uploading the poster for the film. What’s your take on this bold (and bizarre) new project for Ferrell? Leave your comments below!
