Columbia Pictures has debuted the first teaser trailer for The Other Guys,
an action cop comedy
starring Mark Wahlberg
and Will Ferrell
as a pair of misfit cops.
Set in New York City, The Other Guys
follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an embarrassing public incident with his quick trigger finger. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Manzetti (Dwayne Johnson
and Samuel L. Jackson
), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
