File this under “Harm, but no foul.” Here’s a look at a shocking scene in which a man is invited to try sinking a miracle half-court shot during a break in an NBA game. You’ll note that his aim is just a wee bit off, resulting in a cheerleader getting a Wilson sandwich and the boorish guy being forcibly removed from the court. Relax, the loser was Will Ferrell, shooting a scene for the actor’s upcoming pic Daddy’s Home, a reteam with Mark Wahlberg in which Ferrell plays a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children. But complications arise when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids. Fear not — the cheerleader’s really a stuntwoman.
