Will Ferrell hits NBA cheerleader in head with ball during movie shoot
(Associated Press) NEW ORLEANS, La. – Fans at a professional basketball game in New Orleans on Wednesday became part of a Will Ferrell movie during the halftime show.
Ferrell and costar Mark Wahlberg attended the NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans to film two takes of a scene for a movie titled “Daddy’s Home.”
The scene involved Ferrell’s character winning a chance to make a half-court shot for prizes during an NBA game involving the Lakers. Ferrell’s character misses the shot badly, hitting a cheerleader, then gets belligerent and the scene turns temporarily chaotic.
