Presented without comment.


A pitch floating around the studio has Will Ferrell playing a version of disgraced former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, with Melissa McCarthy playing his wife Shelly and Kristen Wiig playing Donald’s mistress. The pitch cites Danny DeVito’s 1986 movie Ruthless People as its inspiration, and also suggests that frequent Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay be brought on to direct.

HAHAHAHAHA! Will Ferrell as Donald Sterling. That could be gold. I really hope they do a scene where he's heckling Baron Davis. Will Ferrell would nail that!

They need someone more "ethnic" than Wiig for the mistress.

I believe three question marks counts as commentary.

I think they should have 2 actresses play the mistress. One should be the way Donald Sterling saw her. A beautiful white woman with a hint of latina. The other should look like well....V Stiviano.

Will Ferrell standing up shouting "Be a man! Be a man!!" In court at the opposing lawyer like DTS did would be a classic scene.

I like Wil Farell (he the guy with the curly hair right?) but I wouldn't watch a movie based on Sterling.
Sounds boring and dumb.

Why boring and dumb? Will Farell(yes he's the guy with the curly hair)is a comedy actor(an amazing one),plus the the film will be a comedy for sure,not the classic biographical film.

^ Exactly. The casting of Ferrell assumes this must be a comedy. If it's not a comedy I agree with the prior post.
