Writer/Director/Star Josh Duhamel and Dan Bakkedahl Talks About their new comedy Buddy Games
Josh Duhamel writes, directs and co-stars alongside Dan Bakkedahl in their new comedy Buddy Games out today on VOD and DVD from Saban Film and WWE Studios.
In a long tradition of Alpha Male Madness, Bob (Duhamel) and Shelly (Bakkedahl) compete in a wildly outrageous set of events that pits man against nature against alcohol against his own mortality.
During one particular Buddy Games, something goes terribly wrong and an accident keeps Shelly and the boys seperated until half a decade later when Bob aka the Bobfather reunites the crew and this time the grand prize is $150,000!
Starring along side Duhamel and Bakkedahl are Nick Swardson as Bender, Kevin Dillon as Doc, Dax Shepard as Drufy, James Roday Rodriguez as Zane and Olivia Munn as Tiffany.
I got a chance to speak with Duhamel and Bakkedahl about this latest screwball, action comedy, how much fun it was hanging out and playing with your friends in the forest, with room to goof off in adding to the script and hint at why I never want a blended fruity drink again…it gets kind of heavy.
Josh Duhamel (Transformers) stars in this wild and hilarious, no-holds-barred comedy. After six lifelong friends have a five year falling out, Bob (Duhamel), aka “The Bobfather”, reunites his pals for the Buddy Games, an insane competition of absurd physical and mental challenges with the chance to win a $150,000 pot. Now all bets are off, as the determined dudes fight, claw, and party for the big bucks in this star-studded bro-fest featuring Dax Shepard (CHiPs), Olivia Munn (Office Christmas Party) and Kevin Dillon (“Entourage”).
Buddy Games out today on VOD and DVD from Saban Film and WWE Studios and is distributed by Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment.
