Hannibal Buress has had both a successful and interesting year in 2014. He released a brand new hour long stand-up set entitled Live from Chicago while setting the media ablaze with his comments about Bill Cosby during a set down in Philadelphia. A fire that has since grown and is still burning. Now Hannibal is set to star in Daddy’s Home, previously titled World’s Greatest Brad.
The comedy, set to be released in 2015, stars Will Ferrell as husband to Linda Cardellini with Mark Wahlberg as Linda’s Ex. Will does his best to win over Linda’s kids from her marriage to Mark, but he’s got some competition when Wahlberg re-enters the picture as a freeloader. 2015 is going to be a big year for Hannibal. In addition to Daddy’s Home, he’s due to appear in the comedian cast driven Flock of Dudes as well as the comedic thriller Band of Robbers, which re-imagines Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as grown men in current day. And if you are as addicted as most people who own a smart phone are, you’re aware of the animated feature Angry Birds due in 2016. Hannibal lends his voice to that as well. His star is now crossing over into the main stream from the comedy world and we’re excited to take the ride with him.
