Watch Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis Read '50 Shades of Grey'by: Posted:
Normally if you take Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis and add bondage, the result is not something you would want to see. But in this particular case, it turned out pretty well.
In a recent interview concerning their new comedy "The Campaign," Galifianakis and Ferrell were challenged to read excerpts from 50 Shades of Grey, the erotic(?) novel(?) that has been taking the world by storm. The two gladly accepted, and of course comedy followed.
Galifianakis jumps right into the text, so much so that he misinterprets it to be about inappropriately touchy Christian babies. Ferrell mostly just seems confused, but notes that the writing is "exquisite" when they're finished.
So, maybe Galifianakis and Ferrell aren't right for the lead roles in the movie adaptation of "50 Shades of Grey," which is currently in the works. However, a number of other actors and actresses have been mentioned as under consideration for the roles of Ana and Christian, including "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke, "Shameless" star Emmy Rossum, "True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard, and many others.
Check out the video of Ferrell and Galifianakis below. What do you think, did they do it better than the cast of "Snow White and the Huntsman" did with their reading?
