Interview: Linda Cardellini on ‘Daddy’s Home’

If you’ve already watched Star Wars one too many times in the past few days and are in need of a holiday-spirited movie this weekend, Daddy’s Home should do the trick. Linda Cardellini (Bloodlines, Freaks & Geeks) stars alongside comedy duo, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, for an entertaining feature that is both silly and heartfelt.

Cardellini plays Sarah, a woman who seems to have the perfect life with her two bright kids and her loving, family-man husband, Brad (Ferrell). Everything is fine up until her ex, Dusty (Wahlberg) comes back into the picture because *spoiler alert* Sarah’s children are a result of her whirlwind romance with Dusty back in the day.

Thus, a rivalry between father and dad begins. It’s a crazy, but hysterical ride that will satisfy you this holiday weekend. Below, watch Cardellini talk about her experience on set, working with Will and Mark and more!

Daddy’s Home opens in theaters December 25.

Alejandra Torres is a 21 year old from Miami, Florida. She graduated from Florida International University with a degree in English Literature. She loves books, television, and movies. Some of her other favorite things include: leftovers (food—not the show), cookie dough, and her pet poodles, Benji and Bella. She hates Miami traffic but loves XM radio, so basically, it’s complicated. In a battle between contacts or trendy, oversized glasses, the latter wins because lets face it, contacts are a lot more dangerous than some people might think. Her latest binge victim was Parks & Recreation. She “literally” got through six seasons faster than the Millennium Falcon kicks into warp speed. Her favorite shows include: Game of Thrones and Pretty Little Liars—because it doesn’t matter whether a girl is from Dragonstone or Rosewood, fashion is key.
