Kicking off the weekend a little bit early, James Franco and Seth Rogen showed up at the The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown LA last night (December 11).
The “Pineapple Express” costars were in the house to drum up interest in their controversial new movie “The Interview,” and they received a warm welcome from fans and shutterbugs. Meanwhile, security was beefed up at the event given the North Korean threats against Rogen, Franco, Sony and pretty much anyone else who doesn’t agree with the communist country.
He always seems to get lucky in life, and Seth Rogen recently experienced a once-in-a-lifetime listening party for Kanye West's new album.
The “Pineapple Express” star told Rolling Stone, “Me and my wife had gotten some dessert and were in the lobby getting plates to bring back to our room…And Kanye was like, ‘What are you guys doing? Want to hear my new album?’”
They’ve never worried about being offensive, and it seems James Franco and Seth Rogen have found an enemy in Kim Jong-Un with their new comedy “The Interview” in which they attempt to assassinate, um… Kim Jong-Un.
The North Korean dictator’s spokesperson Kim Myong-chol told The Telegraph, “There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society.”
During his “Neighbors” promotional tour, Seth Rogen has been asked a bunch of questions about his dislike for Justin Bieber, and finally the “Baby” singer has weighed in on the less-than-flattering comments.
Bieber took to his Twitter page last night (May 7) with the message, “Seth Rogan sorry I didnt bow down when I asked 2 meet u was probably a bit shy and didn't want to be over the top but still. love ur movies.”
