Doug (Josh Gad) has a dilemma: His wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) is looming, but the nerdy guy has no best man. Enter Jimmy (Kevin Hart), owner of Best Man Inc, which provides just the deceptive service our hero needs. Can they pull it off — and maybe, just maybe, even become actual pals? Alan Ritchson, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers and Ken Howard star in The Wedding Ringer for director Jeremy Garelick, who co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender. Screen Gems opens the comedy January 16 for Martin Luther King Day weekend — the same holiday frame that Hart’s Ride Along dominated with a record-breaking opening this year.
