Helms said: “Proud to be a fake member of @MumfordAndSons I think we showed a lot of fake artistic integrity in new video.”
What do you think about the Hopeless Wanderer video? Do you think Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Will Forte. and Jason Bateman are passable as musicians? Thankfully, they all have some pretty nice acting gigs that they can fall back on.
