The Buddy Games stars Josh Duhamel, who also directed the film, Olivia Munn, Dax Shepard, Kevin Dillon, James Roday, Jensen Ackles, Neal McDonough, and others. WWE Superstar Sheamus is also featured, as a character named "Thursty" in a supporting role. He is billed by his real name, Stephen Farrelly.
The synopsis for the movie reads like this: "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")."
The Buddy Games was originally scheduled to be released in theaters in March of this year, but the COVID-19 prevented that from happening. You can see the trailer above. Below is video of co-stars Duhamel and Sheamus at a RAW show on June 26, 2017, promoting the project.
- As noted earlier, "Drew McInfart" was trending on social media after WWE official Adam Pearce slipped up when referring to WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during last night's RAW episode. Pearce quickly corrected himself but the slip led to numerous memes and jokes on social media.
Pearce tweeted on the "McInfart" botch and wrote, "Apologies to Mr. McInfart, who is obviously the champion of something entirely different."
We noted earlier how Charly Caruso, who visibly reacted to the slip-up when interviewing Pearce, also commented on Twitter. She wrote, "It took every bit of me not to burst out laughing [laughing emoji x 2]"
