An open casting call has been scheduled for the upcoming comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2. Both Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have already signed onto to reprise their roles as Brad Whitaker and Dusty Mayron, respectively. In the original 2015 film, Brad (Will Ferrell) is a kindhearted radio executive who wants to be the best possible stepfather to his wife’s (Linda Cardellini) two children. When her freewheeling ex-husband Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) breezes back into town, Brad’s feeling of insecurity quickly develops into an inferiority complex. As Dusty demonstrates his flair for athletics, home repair and bad-boy charisma, Taggart finds himself in a no-holds-barred battle to one-up his rival and win the approval of his family. It is said that John Lithgow and Mel Gibson have signed on to portray Dusty and Brad’s warring fathers. Filming will take place on March 20th through May 2017 in Boston, MA.
