Boys will be boys when they play in the 'Wedding Band'

By Stacey Harrison Published: November 9, 2012

The hard-partying lifestyle is key to how Green, 39, plays Tommy, but he says it's not the entire character. Underneath all the hedonism, there is a core selflessness to him.

“He's perpetually hung over, he's out of his mind, but he's a good guy,” Green says. “That's the endearing thing. He's a drunk, and he's a partyer, but at the end of the day he works his a — off to do his job to the best of his ability and really make special days for people, and he'd kill himself trying.”

The pacing may seem odd to viewers used to their TV comedies coming in half-hour bites. But with its multiple main characters and sometimes intricate plots, “Wedding Band” makes full use of its one-hour run time, creating a vibe Green says is more akin to “fun short movies than long episodes of television.” Sometimes it involves talking Tommy's old flame out of dumping her current beau, or maybe turning a couple of high school nerds into studs by helping them throw the most legendary (but nonalcoholic) rager in memory.
