Web of Lies: Meet the Impostor Hired by Hannibal Buress to Take His Place at 'Spider-Man' Premiere
Joe Carroll is an actor himself who also wrote a novel called "Sinful Confessions: Inaugural Secrets."
At Wednesday’s Los Angeles premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, comedian Hannibal Buress hired an impostor to walk the red carpet in his place.
Buress, who plays Coach Wilson in the superhero flick, paid a stand-in $500 to hit the red carpet and talk to the press — all while assuming Buress' identity.
Actually July 7th. But also July 8th tooJune 29, 2017
Earlier Wednesday, Buress sent a tweet to his fans offering $500 for "a look alike with solid comedic timing for an event tonight."
The stand-in’s name is Joe Carroll, who's an actor himself. He's also an author, publishing a novel called Sinful Confessions: Inaugural Secrets last year.
"I don’t really know the details 'til I got there," Carroll told Inside Edition Thursday. "It happened last minute."
He added that he wasn't nervous about crashing the premiere as Buress.
Carroll documented his night on his personal Instagram account.
Spider-Man: Homecoming, which also stars Tom Holland, Donald Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Marissa Tomei and Michael Keaton, opens on July 7.
