These two pictures of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in Step Brothers have hit the web.  LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! *sigh*

In the film Will plays Brennan Huff, a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy (Mary Steenburgen). John C. Reilly plays Dale Doback, a terminally unemployed forty-year-old who lives with his father, Robert (Richard Jenkins).  When Robert and Nancy marry and move in together, Brennan and Dale are forced to live with each other as step brothers.  As their narcissism and downright aggressive laziness threaten to tear the family apart, these two middle-aged, immature, overgrown boys will orchestrate an insane, elaborate plan to bring their parents back together.  To pull it off, they must form an unlikely bond that maybe, just maybe, will finally get them out of the house.  The screenplay is by Will Ferrell & Adam McKay from a story by Will Ferrell & Adam McKay & John C. Reilly. [Collider]

Translation: “Story by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay and John C. Reilly” means “We goofed around for a while and we filmed it!”

Oh well, we’ll always have Green Team. I’m starting to wonder if Will Ferrell ever does anything they don’t film.
