Seth Rogen And James Franco Bring Us The Trailer For 'The Interview'

I couldn't think of worse spies if I tried. Which I haven't. Seth Rogen, having sometimes, but still not all that often decided to stray from the road-tested formula of being a giant, grown-up boy, has once again teamed with James Franco and buddy/partner Evan Goldberg to bring us The Interview. It seems pretty high concept for him, too. The Interview follows Rogen and Franco as they take a diplomatic trip to North Korea to kill Kim Jung Un. Huh. That's...that's something. Even though the project is something of a departure, somewhat in the action vein, you'll still see a lot of familiar faces, including fan fave Lizzie Caplan. Take a look.

Let's Hope North Korea Likes This Red Band Trailer For 'The Interview'

It's their way of apologizing. North Korea was deeply insulted when they learned about The Interview, a comedy in which Seth Rogen and James Franco are drafted to assassinate the vicious dictator, Kim Jong-Un. So insulted, that they are predictably threatening nuclear war. As a plea for forgiveness, the studio did some cursory research to figure out what North Koreans enjoy watching. So, with deepest apologies, please enjoy these scenes of Seth Rogen shoving a robot's penis up his rectum. Sorry for joking about killing you.


Kim Jong-un Isn't Such A Bad Guy In New 'The Interview' Trailer

Maybe North Korea wouldn't be so intent on blowing us up with nuclear weapons if they actually took the time to watch The Interview. The latest trailer paints a much different portrait of insane dictator Kim Jong-un where Seth Rogen and James Franco reveal he loves puppies, Katy Perry, and blowing stuff up with tanks. Just like us. I say we give this guy another chance and don't attempt to stab his throat to ribbons with an ink pen on live television as previously planned.


Here's a Deleted Scene From 'The Interview' Starring Guy Fieri *shudder*

This movie felt like it was covered in Donkey Sauce. In case you found Franco and Rogen's schtick to be enough in The Interview, you'll be very grateful to learn that they did actually exercise some restraint. They could have pulled out the big guns. And by "the big guns," I mean Guy Fieri. Yup. The bleach blonde Muppet had his very own scene that didn't make it to the final cut. Ok. While it's not exactly an understated scene, it's pretty funny. "Welcome to Flavortown, bitches."


Seth Rogen Experiences The Downside Of Living Next To Dickheads In 'Neighbors' Trailer

This must be worse than living next to Justin Bieber. Set in a fictional reality where a rowdy fraternity is allowed to move into a residential area and Seth Rogen is able to woo and impregnate a hottie like Rose Byrne, Neighbors tells the story of a young couple battling the Greeks next door. Zac Efron and Dave Franco play the douchey frat neighbors whose wild parties, De Niro impersonations, and sperm upset the once quiet neighborhood. All that and I'm sure they're playing "Blurred Lines" non-stop. You just know.


Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Apply For An Office Job On 'Workaholics'

There's nothing funny about workahol addiction. Despite its portrayal in the series as a bland, soul-sucking humorless place, it's probably a dream of many to start punching in at the Workaholics office, if only for the three hilarious asshats that reside there. It also seems like Seth Rogen would be a perfect fit (Zac Efron, maybe not so much) to join the guys, so it makes sense that they would fake apply for a job with the trio in doing their promotion for Neighbors. It gets pretty vulgar, which you probably would have expected anyway. Take a gander.


Multiple James Francos Converge On 'General Hospital'

"Oscars" James Franco meets Art Gallery James Franco meets Evil "General Hospital" James Franco. James Franco seems to be doing so many different projects, from art gallery movie director to recently appointed Wizard of Oz, that it was only a matter of time before the Francoverse started collapsing in on itself. Evidence: In this clip from "General Hospital," which Franco has a recurring character on because he needs to fill the occasional bits of free time in his schedule, his murdering "The Franco" is going to a black tie affair. Could it be..."The Academy Awards?" That sly reference to his role in 127 Hours makes me think "perhaps." They even worked in his self-portraits and compulsive multi-tasking. Oh man, does this mean his role as a scientist in Rise of the Apes will somehow tie into Akira? I'm hoping that's a "yes" too. For now, though, it looks like "General Hospital" is the nexus point between Franco universes. (The Playlist)


James Franco Now Available In Straight To Video Form

James Franco doesn't have enough of your attention yet. It's been a while since anything's been heard from actor/writer/student/professor of Egyptology James Franco, presumably because he's been trotting the globe on his latest adventure. Or maybe he was just working on Shadows & Lies. Here's what it's all about, Francophiles: "Franco plays William Vincent, a quiet and mysterious criminal. When he falls for a New York gangster’s (Josh Lucas) favorite call girl (Julianne Nicholson), Vincent is forced to flee the city, threatened with death if he should ever return. But after four years in exile, Vincent secretly returns intent on rescuing the woman he loves from her dangerous fate." Sounds pretty cool. The movie is coming out on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on June 7, but you can see a clip from the movie above. Enjoy, because Franco just doesn't have enough of your attention yet. (Film School Rejects)
