How Will Ferrell Prepared to Play a Depressed Alcoholic in Everything Must Go

How did Will Ferrell master the physical mannerisms of a bottoming-out alcoholic in Everything Must Go? How do you think? By getting sloppy-ass drunk. "I actually had a buddy of mine come over and film me getting drunk one night, just as an excuse to drink 18 beers, but also to see if there was anything I could glean from that," Ferrell says. "What happens is, I’m just a very happy drunk. That doesn’t help. I just get silly." Will Ferrell? Silly? You don't say! Also, please release that video to the Internet; we would love to see it.
