There might have never been a more appropriately named film than Shotgun Wedding. Starring Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel, the action rom-com film is full of guns and love. In addition to Lopez and Duhamel, the film features a wonderfully hilarious cast that includes Cheech Marin, D’Arcy Carden, Selena Tan and Callie Hernandez, who all lend their comedic talents to the story.
Recently, Jorgie got to sit down with Marin, Carden, Tan and Hernandez to talk about their experience on the film. Every single one of them spoke affectionately about filming in the Dominican Republic and how close the cast and crew were during production. As Hernandez shared, many of the cast members would regularly spend time together and share meals away from filming. Tan shared how much she admires the way the lead stars, Jennifer Lopez and Josh Dumahel prepared for, and executed, their roles. When asked who her favorite character is, she talked about several co-stars but specifically mentioned Steve Coulter. Separately, Marin and Carden also talked about how much they enjoy Steve Coulter and his underrated humor. When asked what the film is about, Marin and Carden said simply – “Family wins and love rules.”
It’s clear that they all had so much fun with this experience and the result is a highly entertaining and humorous film.

In Shotgun Wedding, Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom (Josh Duhamel) gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding, just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage. “’Til Death Do Us Part” takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones—if they don’t kill each other first.
