FORT WORTH — Two of Hollywood's top comedy stars — Will Ferrell and Zach Galifanakis — brought their humor to Fort Worth on Wednesday.

The two visited service members and their families at the Naval Air Station, a tour stop for their upcoming movie "The Campaign," in which they play rivals in a Congressional race.

Ferrell and Galifanakis took sides to coach a tug-of-war between the Air Force and the Marines.

"I'm just hoping I have the bigger guys on my team, so I don't have to coach that much," Ferrell said.

"I'm looking for yes, some weight — yes, weight is probably better than muscle, so if there are any fat guys out there, we'd like to have them," Galifanakis added.

When it was time for the competition to begin, Ferrell even jumped into action himself, but it was the Galifanakis team that won.

Everyone on the base is a winner, though. They'll get a free screening of "The Campaign" before it opens in theaters on August 10.
