As alumni of The State and Reno 911, Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant have played everything from inbred hillbilly brothers (who are also cousins and father and son) to the law in Reno. Now they've donned the frock to lead the flock as clergy fighting the Devil himself in their new film "Hell Baby," which is now playing in select theaters.
In addition to being the film's co-stars, Ben and Thomas also co-directed, co-produced, and co-write the movie. And they told our very own Katie Linendoll they may even be co-dependent, seeing as how they've worked together every day since 1988. That work has included screenwriting credits for the "Night at the Museum" films, many of Hollywood's biggest comedies of the last decade, and shows like "The State" and "Reno 911!" for Spike's sister channels, MTV and Comedy Central.
You can see this week's episode of All Access Weekly now. But before they dish on what a d*** the Devil is, let's take a look at some of their greatest moments in and out of uniform.DOUG'S DAD
There's no book that will tell you how to be a father. Well, there are a few, but they're hogwash. Too bad Doug's Dad didn't write one, because we'd totally pre-order that ish on Amazon.

loves bacon. Like, a lot. It's sort of nice, really.
