In the comedy, Hart plays a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially-challenged guys, who can’t get anyone to stand by them on their wedding days.

The Wedding Ringer

"The Wedding Ringer" is just one of a handful of projects on Kevin Hart's slate, with highlights that include co-starring with Will Ferrell in a comedy titled "Get Hard," a sequel to the immensely successful "Ride Along," his plans to launch a new 24-hour comedy network later this year, and more.

He'll also appear with Chris Rock in "Finally Famous."

Hart is maybe one of the busiest, and most in-demand actors/comedians working right now. I've lost count of the number of projects he's been attached to since the break-out success his stand-up comedy concert "Laugh At My Pain" 3 years ago, which did some impressive damage at the box office, for a film of its ilk, and was followed by a successful sequel.

Since then it's been one film and/or TV project after another, announced.

Recently, he starred alongside veterans Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in a film called "Grudge Match;" a remake of the 1986 rom-com "About Last Night" starring with Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant and Regina Hall; the aforementioned "Ride Along," with Ice Cube; and, on the small screen, in BET's hit series "Real Husbands Of Hollywood."

And this is likely only just the beginning of what's to come. He's in that rare position that makes him a bankable actor, as studios want to be in the Kevin Hart business. 

Here's the trailer for his next film, which will likely be attached to prints of "Think Like A Man Too" which opens in theaters nationwide today (and which Kevin Hart co-stars in). The Kevin Hart/Josh Gad comedy from Screen Gems/Miramax, and first-time helmer Jeremy Garelick, produced by Will Packer, is titled "The Wedding Ringer."

In the comedy, Hart plays a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially-challenged guys, who can’t get anyone to stand by them on their wedding days. 

Gad plays a groom-to-be, who finds himself in need of Hart's services. Of course, all doesn't work out exactly as planned, as hijinx and hilarity ensue.

Supporting cast includes Affion Crockett, Jenifer Lewis, Corey Holcomb, Kaley Cuoco, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Alan Ritchson, Mimi Rogers, Ignacio Serricchio, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby and Nicky Whelan. 

Jeremy Garelick directed from a screenplay he penned with Jay Lavender.

Miramax’s Adam Fields is co-producer along with Will Packer. Screen Gems’ President, Clint Culpepper, is overseeing the project on behalf of Screen Gems.
