Cheers to one of the hardest working men in Hollywood!
Comedian Kevin Hart is preparing to star in yet another film. According to Deadline, the comedy’s title has been changed from The Golden Tux to The Wedding Ringer. In the movie, Kevin reportedly plays a personable guy named Jimmy, who offers his best man services to socially awkward grooms that are unable to secure a friend or family member to stand in at their weddings. Kevin’s co-star, Josh Gad, is said to be playing one of the socially challenged grooms who hires Kevin for his services. Since this is a Kevin Hart comedy, things are expected to take a hilarious turn.
We hear the movie will also feature Affion Crocket, who will be playing one of the nine hired groomsmen, Jorge Garcia, Jennifer Lewis, Corey Holcomb and a host of others. According to Shadow and Act, production for the movie has already begun in Los Angeles. The film is being produced by Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems.
“We love working with Kevin. He’s wonderfully funny, Screen Gems’ director of physical production Glenn Gainor told the LA Times.
The Wedding Ringer sounds like a pretty funny idea.
