For a month, for three decades, five friends from Spokane, Washington, play “tag” (it stays, you carry) no matter where they are or how long they have not seen each other. This story discovered by chance by a journalist from the Wall Street Journal now becomes a comedy that hits theaters on Friday, June 15 with a group cast in which Ed Helms stands out. We speak with the 44-year-old American actor, popular for “The Hangover” and the series “The Office”, a few days before the premiere of “TAG”.
It’s so crazy and fun that these guys have been doing it for more than 30 years. Making the film for me was like being part of that. The fact that it was a true story is what most attracted me to the project. Because the movie is so crazy and absurd that I think it’s even too crazy, unless it’s a real story. It’s hilarious
It’s a comedy, but also a film about friendship. We have all moved away from very good friends we had in school or in college.
Yes, about friendship and about how difficult it is to stay close to people the older we get. It requires extra effort and this tag game is a very ingenious way to achieve it. I hope people see the movie and reconnect with old friends.
