There are some things that money cannot buy, but a best man and a group of groomsmen are not among them in the first trailer for The Wedding Ringer, following the first photos that debuted yesterday. Kevin Hart stars as Jimmy, who runs a successful business dubbed Best Man Inc., where he will be your best man for the right price. Josh Gad stars as Doug, who not only needs a best man, but also a cadre of groomsmen, which provides the ultimate challenge for Jimmy, who is known as "The Golden Tux." Kaley Cuoco, Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia and Cloris Leachman round out the supporting cast in director Jeremy Garelick's new comedy, arriving in theaters January 16, 2015.
In The Wedding Ringer, Jimmy (Kevin Hart) provides best man services for socially challenged guys, who - for whatever reason - have no one close enough to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding. Doug (Josh Gad) a groom-to-be, has found himself in just such a situation, but, to make matters worse, he fabricates the names of not only a best man but nine groomsmen as well. When all else fails, Doug seeks out Jimmy's services to carry out a charade designed to make Doug look his best, but threatens to destroy everything if it fails.
