Djokovic, Will Ferrell face off against Kevin Spacey, Wawrinka
Stars literally collided At Will Ferrell's Desert Smash Pro Exhibition, in charity matches held Tuesday.

Here's a snapshot of tennis uber-fans Ferrell and Spacey going nose to nose, sans racquets:

Ferrell later made his way to a charity music event featuring Boys II Men and Nelly. (Because who doesn't love 2001? And 1995?) What's your favorite takeaway from this event? Good on these celebrated folks for aiding the fight against cancer and having fun doing it, all while casting a spotlight on sport.
