VIDEO: Owen Wilson, Ed Helms Hunt for Dad in Raunchy ‘Father Figures’ Red Band Trailer
Comedy co-stars Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, Ving Rhames, Katie Aselton, and Stern Show veterans J.K. Simmons, Katt Williams, and Harry ShearerSeptember 28, 2017
Owen Wilson and Ed Helms are twins literally hunting for their biological father in the raunchy red band trailer for “Father Figures,” a Warner Bros. comedy hitting theaters in December.
The madness begins after their mother Helen (Glenn Close) reveals her wild past to her sons, telling them she has no clue who actually impregnated her back in the day: “It was the crazy ’70s. Everybody was high and fucking,” she explains in the trailer (above). “Monogamy wasn’t exactly a priority.”
Suddenly, Helms and Wilson are on a mission to find the man who knocked up their mom—and everyone is a suspect, from Oscar winner and 2015 Stern Show guest J.K. Simmons, to the oft-imitated Christopher Walken, to football legend Terry Bradshaw (as himself). As the twins go down the list, they also learn much more than they ever wanted to know about their mother’s past.
The films’ other co-stars include June Squibb, Ving Rhames, recent Wrap Up Show guest Katie Aselton, and Stern Show veterans Harry Shearer and Katt Williams, with the latter playing a hitchhiker who may also be a serial killer.
“Father Figures” hits theaters Dec. 22. Watch the red band trailer (above).
