Will Ferrell may be a baller on the comedy court, but he fouled out big time with his latest stunt.

During halftime at Wednesday's Lakers-Pelicans game in New Orleans, Ferrell participated in a faux-half court shot competition. But instead of shooting the ball, Ferrell threw it and hit a nearby cheerleader in the head. Ferrell was then promptly "ejected" by security after hitting the cheerleader.



The stunt was filmed for Ferrell's upcoming 2015 movie "Daddy's Home," according to Sports Illustrated. IMDb describes the film as "When a divorced guy's ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc." Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, and Hannibal Burress are set to star in the film alongside Ferrell.
