Check out this Roto-Rooter cameo in the movie The Wedding Ringer. Watch now on the Roto-Rooter Video Library
Be sure to watch for Roto-Rooter in the film "The Wedding Ringer," which opens nationwide on January 16, 2015.
In the film, you'll see an amazing stunt performed by a Roto-Rooter service van that is shown jumping over an open section of a bridge, spanning the Los Angeles River. In reality, there was no hole in the bridge, but make no mistake, that was a real Roto-Rooter van jumping a ramp on a real bridge. Editors used computer generated graphics in post-production to make it look even more dangerous than it was.
Roto-Rooter provided four different vans for the film. One was used in the jump scene, another was used in a chase scene, the third was used in the scene when the van was pulled over by the police, and a fourth van was chopped up and put on a gimbal in front of a green screen, for scenes in which the actors can be seen conversing inside the van.
Now, in The Wedding Ringer, a very talented actor in the film, Jorge Garcia, plays the part of a Roto-Rooter service technician. Jorge is a big guy. So to outfit him, Roto-Rooter had to send him a size 6XL Roto-Rooter work shirt. And trust me, that was not easy to find.
Roto-Rooter is proud to be a part of The Wedding Ringer. It has a great cast and is a very funny film. We hope you enjoy it in theaters and later on DVD and On Demand.
