Screen Gems has released the first The Wedding Ringer images featuring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad.  The comedy centers on an introverted yet successful tech entrepreneur (Gad) who hires the owner of Best Man Inc. (Hart) to be the perfect best man and throw a killer wedding party.  Hart describes the business model:

“I run a business where I’m a great best man for the right price.  But I do what has never been done before in this case.  I make this guy look like one of the most amazing people in the world.”

Olivia Thirlby, Kaley Cuoco, Jorge Garcia, Affion Crockett, and Aaron Takahashi also star in The Wedding Ringer, directed by Jeremy Garelick.  Hit the jump for the Wedding Ringer images, plus more quotes from Hart and Gad.

Hart tells USA Today:

“This is one hell of a whirlwind.  It’s a modern-day bromance with two guys who feed off each other really well.”

Gad agrees on the bromance aspect:

“The two of us complement each other in a wild, dynamic way.”

The Book of Mormon star provides an example from the complicated wedding dance number they rehearsed for three days:

“What I lack in urban rhythms, Kevin makes up for.  What Kevin lacks in Broadway legit rhythms, I certainly make up for.  We make a dynamic duo.”

The Wedding Ringer is scheduled for release on January 16, 2015.
