In The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.”
When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists.
As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
Starring alongside James Franco and Seth Rogen are Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex, Mean Girls), Randall Park (Larry Crowne, Neighbors), and Timothy Simons (Veep, Draft Day).
This is the second action comedy starring friends Seth Rogen and James Franco; the two previously starred in David Gordon Green’s hilarious 2008 action-comedy, Pineapple Express.
Evan Golderberg, who wrote the screenplay for Pineapple Express alongside Seth Rogen, teamed up with the actor again to direct The Interview.
The two also wrote and directed the 2013 hit comedy, This is the End, starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride.
The talented Seth Rogen has worn many hats in the entertainment industry; everything from writer, to director, to producer, to actor, and it looks like he could be adding a new line of work to his resume: that of professional blunt roller.
This Christmas looks like its going to be bringing the laughs; Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and The Interview both open on Christmas Day.
