Stories about the connections shared between twins, known as twintelepathy, are common. And coming from a real fraternal twin (me), I’ll tell you first hand, that they are true. So I was super excited when CASSIUS was invited to view the new twin-flick, Father Figures, and interview the stars, Owen Wilson, Ed Helms and Katt Williams.
Here’s the synopsis of the film.
Fraternal twin brothers Kyle (Owen Wilson) and Peter (Ed Helms) are shocked to learn that their mother (Glenn Close) has been lying to them for years about their father being deceased — the truth is that she doesn’t know their dad’s identity due to living a wild life during the 1970s. The duo decides to set off on a cross-country road trip, interviewing the possible candidates along the way in the hope of locating their biological father. J.K. Simmons, Ving Rhames, Terry Bradshaw, Katt Williams, and Christopher Walken co-star. Directed by Lawrence Sher.
The beauty in this film, aside from the bro-mance between Owen and Ed, is their comedic attempt to find the father they never had, and the delightful inclusion of our favorite unpredictable comedien, Katt Williams. The film poses some pretty important questions for the viewer, including, “What would you do if you found out your biological Father wasn’t the man who raised you? Would you search for him? Would you let it go? During our sit down with the stars we discussed hitch hiking and Katt’s top 3 songs of the moment, as well as Owen and Ed’s response to Donald Trump being the father of choice.
