The Wedding Ringer (due out in theaters on January 16, 2015) is a comedy about lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be Doug Harris (Josh Gad), who needs to impress his in-laws and pull off the perfect wedding. With less than two weeks until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., 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 Doug and his fake best man.
Back on October 17, 2013, Collider was invited, along with a handful of other press, to visit the set of The Wedding Ringer while they were shooting the big wedding scene at the Hollywood Methodist Church, and we were able to chat with some of the cast and filmmakers. During a group interview, actor Josh Gad talked about having known about this script for a long time, why the odd couple pairing of him and Kevin Hart just works, why he thinks Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting will have a career like Jennifer Aniston that transitions from sitcom star to film star, how Doug and Jimmy bring out the best in each other, and what it’s like to work with such a group of clowns. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
