Olivia Thirlby, Jorge Garcia, Cloris Leachman, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Colin Kane, Jenifer Lewis, Alan Ritchson, Ignacio Serricchio, Aaron Takahashi, and Nicky Whelan are all set to join Jeremy Garelick’s comedy “The Wedding Ringer” starring Kevin Hart.
Previously referred to as the “untitled Kevin Hart comedy,” Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco, Mimi Rogers, Affion Crockett and Ken Howard also star in the project which just began production.
Garelick and Jay Lavender (“The Break-Up”) penned the script in which Hart plays a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially challenged guys who can’t get somebody to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding.
Gad plays a groom-to-be who finds himself in that situation. Trouble is, he has fabricated not just the best man’s name but nine groomsmen as well. He then seeks out Jimmy’s services to carry out the charade.
