In the second installment –Daddy’s Home 2, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg reprise their roles from the first film as Brad Whitaker and Dusty Mayron, now co-parents to Dusty’s kids. Their co-star Linda Cardellini also reprises her role as Mrs. Whitaker as well as other cast members like Scarlett Estevez, Owen Vaccaro, and John Cena.
