What’s it like to have Will Ferrell as a boss?

Amy Poehler found out when she was recruited for “The House,” the comedy about a couple who turn their home into a casino. Ferrell served as one of the producers.

“This is how it went down,” Poehler tells Made in Hollywood reporter Patrick Stinson. “I get a call from Will in the middle of the night.”

“That’s the way I do business,” says Ferrell.

“He says meet me at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.”

Farrell recalls,”Fly yourself — now!”

“I got my stuff together. My suitcase is popping open. And I get there, go over my lines, get in there, and he takes the script from me and rips it up and goes, ‘Forget about this.'”
