Looks like Will Ferrell's crashing the Internship. Good news or Bad News? Will Ferrell To Reunite With Wilson And Vaughn In The Internship

The cast of the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox comedy The Internship already looked like a mini-Wedding Crashers reunion (with a side of Starsky & Hutch),
with Owen Wilson and VInce Vaughn set to team up in starring roles.
That appears to be even more the case now that Will Ferrell is set to
appear in the film, which - between its cast and premise - is already
brimming with potential for something really funny.
Directed by Shawn Levy, The Internship stars Vince Vaughn and
Owen Wilson as two salesmen who lose their jobs and attempt to
"reinvent" themselves by taking jobs as interns at a tech company,
despite the fact that neither of them are tech geniuses. In addition to
Vaughn and Wilson, the cast includes Max Minghelia, Rose Byrne, John
Goodman, Dylan O'Brien, JoAnna Garcia, Eric Andre, Josh Brener, Tiya
Sircar and Tobit Raphael. And Variety
is now reporting that Ferrell has agreed to cameo in the comedy as
Wilson's brother-in-law, "who sells home electronics and has no problem
making inappropriate comments about his attractive customers." Sounds
like a role he's fully capable of tackling, though the home electronics
thing sounds a bit closer to Vaughn's bag (wasn't that his characters'
careers in Old School and Couples Retreat?)
A small dose of Will Ferrell sounds like a great addition for The Internship,
not only because of the leads' connections in previous films, but also
because it actually sounds like a great part for him. And I can't help
but draw a loose parallel between the premise of The Internship and Old School,
which starred Vaughn, Ferrell and Luke Wilson, and also involved grown
men attempting to move forward by going back to an earlier stage of
their lives in some way (in that case, college). Except in that case it
was more a social change than it was a career move. Still, it was a
great set-up for a comedy. Hopefully we'll see similar success with The Internship.
Coming up for the Campaign star is Three Mississippi, and he has Anchorman 2 set to happen, which will hopefully include (at least) an appearance by Vaughn, who played Wes Mantooth in the original Anchorman.
