Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell Play Casino Games With Fan and Award Him $100K

The 'House' co-stars run a casino during their appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' and play hilarious games with the audience before awarding one of them with $100,000.

AceShowbiz - %cAmy Poehler% and %cWill Ferrell% make a fan very happy as they and %cEllen DeGeneres% award him $100,000 to pay off his debt in the upcoming Monday episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". The lucky audience member is Daquan Mincy.

Amy and Will come to the show in order to promote their upcoming movie, "The House", in which the two play a couple who run an illegal casino in their basement in order to earn money after they lost their daughter's college fund. They previously starred in "Blades of Glory" together.

The actors then dress up as casino dealers to play three casino games with the audience, and each audience member will get a prize. The first audience member wins a plasma TV, while the second one wins a $2,000 visa. The third audience member, Daquan Mincy, manages to win $100,000 on Ellen's wheel of riches. Daquin was in graduate school and struggles to pay his student loan. He was the first in his family to go to college and he now teaches special education.

After winning "The House Mystery Price", which turns out to be the money, Daquan immediately breaks down in tears and hugs Ellen. Amy and Will, who are equally happy, hug each other as Daquan celebrates his win.

Amy, Will and Ellen also talk about their "Saturday Night Live" days on the show, where the "Anchorman" star recalls punching Ellen in the face. "I do remember the sketch where I accidentally punched you [Ellen] in the face. And I gave you boxing headgear as an apology later," Will recounts. "That was really sweet," Ellen answers, before joking, "I thought about suing and I didn't."
