Samuel L. Jackson and "The Rock" Take Center Stage in New Clip from The Other Guys
07.19.10 by BJSprecher
Columbia Pictures has released another new clip from director Adam McKay's (Step Brothers) latest movie, The Other Guys, a comedy about two underachieving cops who finally get their opportunity to save the day. If Detectives Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) and Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) are "The Other Guys," the kind of cops that nobody notices and no one relies on to make a case, then Detectives Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) and Danson ( Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) are "The Guys," super cops who make the big busts and get all the attention. In this new clip, the cop hierarchy becomes apparent as Highsmith puts the verbal smackdown on Gamble for speaking out of turn.
McKay co-wrote The Other Guys with Chris Henchy, whom he worked with on Land of the Lost and The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Ray Stevenson and Steve Coogan also star.
