Today we have the first shots of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Samuel L Jackson on the set of the upcoming "The Other Guys" comedy, which also stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. In addition, we also have an incredible stunt video from the movie, showing two stuntmen diving off a NY City building. Check out everything below.
Plot: 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 (Johnson, Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don't quite go as planned.
The new movie is directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Night) and also stars Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan and Ray Stevenson. It is scheduled to hi theaters on August 6th, 2010.
Holy Crap! The plot looks cheap. But the Cast, Stunt vid and the pictures all got my attention. Will be following this very closely in the future.
The world needs more of The Rock and Samuel L. Jackson in tough guys roles. As for Wahlberg and Farrell in comic roles...we'll see.
Eva Mendes and Michael Keaton can't be too bad either.
The plot is extremely generic because it's going to be a satire/spoof of generic buddy cop movies. I'm actually really looking forward to this, Marky Mark and Ferrell in a buddy cop / b action movie. Adam McKay is on a roll in my book (Step Brother being a masterpiece), so along with the cast (Ray "The Punisher" Stevenson in a comedy?) and genre, I'm down with this.

The Rock should have been in the Expendables

Based on the fact that Sam Jackson hasn't been in a film in a while it'll be good to hear some extreme yelling. I thought people were just joking, but he really does yell in every movie and to think it all started in Coming to America.
Great team, and yes he should have been in the Expendables.

to DoucheNozzle -- Ray Stevenson was in a British TV comedy called "At Home With the Braithwaites" for 2 years. I saw every episode and he was the most naturally funny actor in the show. Too bad Americans are type-casting him as "big hulking violent guy". Here's hoping he will get a wider range of roles in US movies in the near future.
