Mark Wahlberg believes Will Ferrell’s “incredible genius” in is so apparent to people because “his humour comes from a good place”.

The actors worked alongside each other in 2010 action crime comedy The Other Guys.

Will is receiving a Comedic Genius Award at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.

Mark celebrates his colleague’s accolade, as he believes Will deserves ample love and praise.

"Will is obviously an incredible genius," Mark gushed.

"I had the honour of working with him on my first full comedic movie, and he encouraged me to be the moron that I am, and just have no fear — he's fearless.

"And what's great about Will is that his humour comes from a good place. A lot of comedians are actually mean, but with Will, it comes from a nice place. He just enjoys making people laugh."

Will is currently filming his highly anticipated Anchorman sequel in Atlanta.

The comedian reprises his role as inappropriate San Diego newscaster Ron Burgundy in the follow-up to his 2004 cult comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues will be released around Christmastime.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
