Mathew Baynton, James Corden
Russian gangsters, car chases, government conspiracies — these aren't things you often see in comedy. At least not on TV.
Action-comedy films have been around forever, but no one has attempted to blend the genres within a half-hour comedy slot. Until now. On Monday, Hulu debuts The Wrong Mans, an ambitious comedy-thriller from Gavin & Stacey's James Corden and Mathew Baynton co-produced with the BBC. The duo star as Phil (Corden) and Sam (Baynton), two below-average Joes who unwittingly get sucked into a high-stakes crime caper after answering a cell phone found on the road.

Probably not, but thankfully James Corden and Mathew Baynton did.
