His name is Armando Alvarez, and he doesn't speak American. In the brand new poster for Will Ferrell's Spanish-language action comedy, "Casa de mi Padre," we get nothing else but the face of the comedian's fiery and passionate character, Armando.

Jason BatemanThey teamed together on "The Break-Up" and "Couples Retreat," but Jason Bateman and Vince Vaughn's latest reunion could truly test their friendship.

Deadline reports that Bateman is in early talks with Universal Pictures to co-star alongside Vaughn in "Insane Laws," a new movie about two longtime best friends whose relationship is strained when their kids go off to college together and fall in love. Things get even hairier when the daughter of Vaughn's character gets pregnant. No official deal is in place just yet, but the two reportedly participated in a read-through of the material, and production could start as early as this fall.

Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal have reunited once again for the new Will Ferrell comedy, "Casa de Mi Padre." The flick looks hysterical. Will speaking in Spanish and acting like a tough rancher and those two guys showing off their much underused funny bones should lead to many risas (that's laughs in Spanish for you Gringos).

This reteaming makes me happy for a number of reasons. One, it means that I can follow-up on that dinner that Gael owes me when we inevitably meet again. Two, it means that we get to see them in a flick together again. And, three, it means that I perhaps may get the assignment to interview them at the junket.

Will FerrellAy dios mío! I'm almost afraid to say it, but I think we've finally found the perfect Will Ferrell movie.

No, I'm not talking about a sequel to "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," though that would come quite close. Instead, it's his Spanish-language comedy "Casa de mi Padre" that could very well steal la tarta de cumpleaños (see what I did there?) when it comes to the all-time great Ferrell comedies, if the film's freshly debuted trailer is any indication.

In "Casa," Ferrell plays Armando Alvarez, a Mexican rancher who falls in love with his younger brother's fiance, leading to death-defying tensions between himself, businessmen and ruthless drug lords — and, dare I say it, it looks like his funniest movie yet. See why I think so after the jump.
