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.
McKay said, "Though Will and I no longer speak, I still love making movies with him. Will it be tense on set? Absolutely. But fortunately Mark Wahlberg and I have formed a friendship based on our mutual problems with Will. So that's good."
The cast includes Eva Mendes as Sheila, Allen's incredibly plain wife; Michael Keaton as Captain Mauch; and Steve Coogan as billionaire investment banker David Ershon. Ray Stevenson, Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Lindsay Sloane round out the supporting cast.
Sir Oliver Wood serves as the film's Director of Photography, with Clayton Hartley acting as the Production Designer. The film is edited by Brent White. Costume Designer is Carol Ramsey.
The Other Guys was released August 6th, 2010 and stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Steve Coogan, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, Rob Riggle. The film is directed by Adam McKay.
