Olivia Thirlby, Cloris Leachman and Jeffrey Ross co-star, while Affion Crockett and Jorge Garcia play two of Gad’s groomsmen. The film also features a pair of Mimis — Mimi Rogers and Mimi Gianopulos.

“The Wedding Ringer” has been testing through the roof and is expected to do wonders for Garelick’s career. He co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender, while Hart’s frequent collaborator Will Packer produced the film with Adam Fields.

Screen Gems will release the film on Jan. 16, 2015 — just in time for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday that helped give Hart’s “Ride Along” a boost at the box office.
