When you’re making a buddy comedy, it all comes down to the chemistry between the leads. Thankfully, Josh Gad and Kevin Hart are great together and I laughed a lot watching director Jeremy Garelick‘s The Wedding Ringer. As most of you know, the film centers on a socially awkward yet successful groom-to-be (Gad) who hires the CEO of Best Man Inc. (Hart), a company that provides best men for socially challenged guys in need. As the two of them try to fool everybody, a real friendship forms between them. The film also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Olivia Thirlby, Cloris Leachman, Ken Howard, Jenifer Lewis, and Mimi Rogers.

At the recent L.A. press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Josh Gad and Kevin Hart. They talked about who ruined the most takes, how they got involved in the project and the quality of the script. We also discussed the rest of the cast and found out if Gad will be playing Roger Ebert in an upcoming film. Hit the jump to watch.
