"Acting is like lying. The art of lying well. I'm paid to tell elaborate lies." - Mel Gibson
The hilarious first trailer for the sequel to the 2015 movie finds the 61-year-old actor portraying Kurt Mayron, the old-school father of Wahlberg's Dusty.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for "Daddy's Home 2" for fans' viewing pleasure. The over-two-minute video features Mel Gibson and John Lithgow as the on-screen dads of Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell respectively.
Gibson's Kurt Mayron is nothing like Lithglow's Whitaker, who is overly affectionate toward his son Brad (Ferrell). Kurt Mayron is Dusty's (Wahlberg) old-school dad who, as seen in the trailer, could not keep his eyes off beautiful ladies.
Kurt Mayron puts on a cool look when Whitaker and Brad smooch in their first encounter. His son Dusty explains that the cute father-and-son duo share a kiss because they haven't met "in a long time." But Whitaker exclaims, "It's only been two weeks, but it feels like forever."
The sequel to 2015's "Daddy's Home" is directed by Sean Anders, who helmed the first movie, from a script he co-wrote with his "We're the Millers" co-scribe John Morris. The upcoming comedy flick is set to be released on November 10 in theaters across the U.S.
Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio and Linda Cardellini who play the two actors' respective on-screen wives. John Cena is also among the cast members, playing an incredibly intimidating father named Roger.
