Russell Peters Joins Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried in ‘The Clapper’

Comedian Russell Peters has joined Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried in the film “The Clapper.”

The movie follows a professional “infomercial clapper” who gets plucked by a late-night talk show to host his own TV series. The 15 minutes of fame end up costing him his job, as well as a budding relationship with a girl who works at a gas station.
