All Star Game

Tennis and golfing in the desert with Will Ferrell, Kevin Spacey, and Novak Djokovic


Nadal vs. Federer. McEnroe vs. Agassi. Spacey vs. Ferrell?
Even if next week’s Palm Desert celebrity golf and tennis showdown didn’t have free-flowing booze and pro athletes, watching Keyser Soze take on Ron Burgundy in a no-holds-barred tennis match would still be well worth taking off a few days.
The charity events start Monday with The Will Powered Golf Classic, a tournament led by Will Ferrell himself, where foursomes compete over 18 holes and stroke jokes are encouraged.
Afterward, you’ll cool off at a post-round cocktail party as you prep for tomorrow’s games.
Most importantly, your match against Novak Djokovic. The six-time Grand Slam winner will be playing pros and high-paying amateurs alike before Ferrell and Spacey go head-to-head.  
If sitting courtside with a cold drink is more your speed, opt for a VIP table close enough to see the intensity in Spacey’s eyes. The two-time Oscar winner isn't messing around. He said in a statement, “I have taken this assignment like the greatest method actor who ever walked the face of the boards of the most inspired playhouse of all time.” Coming from Frank Underwood, that's intimidating talk.
When the action’s over, join the crowd for a closing party featuring performances by Boyz II Men and Nelly.
According to Ferrell, “It's gonna make Coachella look like a pancake breakfast."
