Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, the stars of the R-rated comedy The Wedding Ringer, have been traveling the country promoting the film which is heading to theaters on January 16, 2015. The threesome obviously enjoy each other’s company, with it taking very little prompting to get them to discuss the Screen Gems release directed by Jeremy Garelick. Their final stop on the publicity tour was a visit to the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar where Hart, Gad, and Cuoco-Sweeting teamed up to talk/joke about their movie that’s actually more of a bromance than a romantic comedy. But they also took a moment at MCAS Miramar to get serious as they gave shout-outs in support of the troops.
The Plot: Jimmy Callahan (Hart) is the owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need, such as Doug Harris (Gad). While Doug is a loveable, he’s a bit socially awkward and this groom-to-be has a big problem problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Cuoco-Sweeting) Doug is desperate and enlists Doug’s services. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

Also making the trip to chat about The Wedding Ringer was writer Jay Lavender (The Break-Up) who talked about the cast and why it took so long to get this clever script made into a feature film:
