“I’m just looking at you two and the chemistry is still there off-screen right?” asked CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo.
“It is,” said Hart.
“It doesn’t feel that way,” joked Gad, “It feels like we’ve grown apart, it feels like we’re starting to resent each other.”
Petrillo told both stars she thought Best Man Inc. was a brilliant business idea.READ MORE: 'Abouta To Shoot Up A School'" South Broward High Student Accused Of Online Threat
“You can’t take it, “said both actors, “We own the rights now.”
Hart said despite the fact it’s a far-fetched idea it is believable.
“I do think as crazy as it is, it’s believable. We took a concept, exaggerated it, but grounded it with performances,” said Hart.
“And the coolest thing about watching this movie with audiences is they are dying, they are laughing so hard, but you also get a sense of audiences that they feel for these guys, they care about these guys and their rooting for these guys,” said Gad.
Gad, who grew up in Hollywood Florida, is best known for voicing the part of Olaf in Disney’s mega hit “Frozen.”
Both stars were at a private screening with family, friends and fans.
“I am who I am because of this town and I am who I am because of my family,” said Gad.
And when it comes to Hart, Petrillo asked if he as just simply born funny.
“Yes! I remember as a baby, about two hours old, going “Waagggaaah” into the microphone and everyone was on the floor laughing and that’s when I knew,” said Hart.MORE NEWS: Pfizer Announces COVID-19 Vaccine Safe For Kids Ages 5 - 11
