Molly Shannon Joins ‘Balls Up’ Movie With Mark Wahlberg & Paul Walter Hauser


EXCLUSIVE: Molly Shannon (The Other Two) has signed on to star alongside Mark Wahlberg and Paul Walter Hauser in Balls Up, the action comedy that Peter Farrelly is directing for Amazon MGM Studios and Skydance.

Details as to her role are under wraps. Written by Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese (Deadpool & Wolverine), the film follows two American marketing executives who are fired for blowing a client sponsorship opportunity and decide to use their free tickets to a major soccer match. Their drunken debauchery leads them to be hunted by every person across the country.

Producers include Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and Andrew Muscato, as well as Wernick and Reese.

A three-time Emmy-nominated alum of Saturday Night Live, Shannon most recently starred in Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider’s The Other Two, which ran for three seasons across Comedy Central and Max, earning a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for her role as Pat Dubek. Prior to that, she earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her work opposite Vanessa Bayer on the Showtime comedy I Love That for You and garnered rave reviews for her turn in the first season of Mike White’s HBO phenomenon The White Lotus.

Recent projects for Shannon on the film side include Zach Braff’s MGM drama A Good Person, Jeff Baena’s SXSW comedy Spin Me Round, and Emerald Fennell’s Oscar-nominated Promising Young Woman. Most recently tapped for a season-long arc in the fourth installment of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, she’s represented by UTA, Framework Entertainment, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller.
