Kate Upton is more than just a pretty face. The model showed off her comedic chops by acting out a scene from the Will Ferrell movie Step Brothers alongside her boyfriend, MLB pitcher Justin Verlander.
The lovebirds had some free time on Easter Sunday, especially with Verlander sidelined with a triceps injury. So they did what any comedy-loving couple would do: recreating the famous interview scene from Step Brothers. The clip features Ferrell’s character interviewing for a job and getting confused over the HR director’s name. Upton then posted the video to Instagram, along with the caption, “When yo man can’t get yo name right @justinverlander.”
I’m sorry,” Verlander replies. “Well, Pan…”
“No, my name is Pam,” says Upton.
“Are you saying Pan or Pam?” asks Verlander.
“I’m saying Pam,” concludes Upton.
For your reference, here is the original Step Brothers interview scene.
A few weeks before Justin Verlander channeled Will Ferrell in this Step Brothers recreation, the comedian did his best impression of Verlander and other MLB stars during spring training. Last month, Ferrell (briefly) suited up for 10 teams in one day, eventually playing every position in the field. It was all part of his upcoming HBO special that also raised money for cancer charities.
“I’m actually hoping that the acting career is over after today,” Ferrell joked before his MLB debut. “I think it’s pretty much the feeling out here that I’m gonna land with one of these clubs. These teams need a clubhouse presence, and by presence I mean a 47-year-old flabby guy who doesn’t know how to play. But I have life experiences, and I’m willing to do what it takes to get the job done. I’m hoping to land a spot on the roster.”
