Watch: Justin Long Honors Fallen Friend in 'Best Man Down' Trailer
Lately Justin Long has been taking a variety of low key films from the underrated high school reunion indie 10 Years to Funny or Die's first feature film iSteve and last year's raunchy, but adorable, comedy For A Good Time Call… Now another smaller film features the actor in the form of Best Man Down. Long plays the groom at a wedding where his best friend (Tyler Labine) dies overnight after the reception. The honeymoon is put on hold and Long's quest to give him a proper funeral begins to raise questions about the man who was supposedly his best friend. The tone seems a bit messy, but it feels like a touching tale. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Ted Koland's Best Man Down, originally from Apple:
Best Man Down marks the feature writing and directorial debut of Ted Koland ("Saints and Sinners"). When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (Tyler Labine) unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin (Jess Weixler) and Scott (Justin Long) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But when they arrive they realize that there was a lot more to their friend than met the eye. Addison Timlin, Frances O'Connor and Shelley Long also star in the film which Magnolia Pictures releases on October 3rd. Looking good?
