Kevin Hart poses as Josh Gad’s very best friend and Best Man at his wedding in the upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer.
Actor/comedian Kevin Hart is about to take the box office by storm in his latest comedy Think Like a Man Too, but pretty soon you’ll get to see a much different side of the funny man.
In the upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer, we will see Hart play a businessman who, for the right price, can be the very best Best Man that anyone could ever ask for.
Josh Gad, whose voice brought the lovable snowman Olaf to life in Walt Disney’s epic Frozen, stars as Doug, a successful computer entrepreneur who is about to marry the love of his life, played by Kaley Cuoco.
Unfortunately, Doug doesn’t have many friends, so in order to please his wedding-obsessed fiancée, he enlists the services of Hart to make it look like he not only has a best friend who can stand up for him, but a team of seven other “friends” who can act as his groomsmen in the wedding.
Of course, this is a little out of the realm of what Jimmy, who is played by Hart, generally offers with his company Best Man Inc.
Now, the two of them have to work together to pull off the story of a lifetime, literally, and make it look like he and the other seven groomsmen have been friends for as long as anyone could possibly remember.
Nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan, right?
Thanks to USA Today, we have a look at three new images from the film that show Jimmy and Doug on their journey to make sure that Doug’s big day goes off without a hitch.
The film is being directed by Jeremy Garelick. While Garelick has plenty of writing experience, this will be his first feature length venture in the director’s chair.
Garelick also helped write the script for the film along with fairly new screenwriter Jay Lavender. Garelick and Lavender also worked together on the script for the romantic comedy The Break Up starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston.
The film has plenty of stars ready to give us a good laugh. The Wedding Ringer stars Think Like a Man Too actor Kevin Hart, Frozen’s Josh Gad, Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco, Lost actor Jorge Garcia, Cloris Leachman, and many more.
The Wedding Ringer is scheduled to be released on January 16, 2015.
