Step Brothers is one of the most celebrated film comedies within this generation. The wild chaos between Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly was a comedy gold mine that got everyone laughing, crying, and excited for the next Catalina Wine Mixer. It is hard to imagine that the movie wouldn't have been conceived if those two and Adam McCay didn't just talk about bunk buds while editing Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

While the film is funny and interesting on its own, the stories behind the scenes can be equally funny and interesting. Were you aware that Jon Hamm almost got a role in the movie? Or that Richard Jenkins' dinosaur monologue was 100% improvised? Or that the aforementioned Catalina Wine Mixer was never even shot on Catalina Island?!?

Learn the secrets behind the laughter. Here are some facts about the making of Step Brothers that you won't believe.
