, and Helms will star as a trio of best friends who head to Las Vegas for a wild bachelor party, only to end up losing the groom 40 hours before his wedding. Bartha will portray the hapless groom. Legendary Pictures will co-produce the film with Warner Brothers, while Roadtrip director Todd Phillips will direct. Filming began last weekend.
In other Galifianakis news, the funnyman has also landed a role on the forthcoming HBO series Bored to Death, which stars Jason Schwartzman as Jonathan, a writer with a drinking problem. Galifianakis will play Ray, a comic book artist who doubles as Jonathan's best friend.
