The cast of This Is the End has stopped being polite and started to get real. In anticipation of this week's release of the movie, the cast is starring in a parody of The Real World: Portland, starring two of its actual cast members, Averey and Joi. This isn't your average season, though. Danny McBride is peeing in the hot tub, James Franco gets super pissed when someone leaves the toilet seat up, and everyone is having inappropriate relationships with the peanut butter. It's pretty hilarious, and a good taste of what This Is the End audiences are in for, especially since this cast is even down to play silly games.
This Is the End hits theaters Wednesday, and though the film's core group consists of James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride, there are also a ton of young Hollywood faces who pop up at Franco's onscreen house party. Rihanna, Emma Watson, and Michael Cera are just some of the celebrities who get their party on at his house (before the world ends). Click through to see who else scores an invite and many more pictures of the apocalypse comedy!
Seth Rogen, Emma Watson, and more of the hilarious cast from This Is the End rocked the red carpet last night for the movie's big premiere. Seth told us where he got the great idea for this film. Plus, see Emma's knockout look, and hear about the cast's beer-drinking trip to our San Francisco office.
Seth Rogen shared his signature laugh and some insight into why he chose to work with all his best friends in his upcoming directorial project, This Is the End. Seth wrote, directed, and stars in the movie, in which he and buddies like James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson are trapped in James's house during the apocalypse. Seth also talked a bit about his next out-there project with James, which will bring them to North Korea, though he would not reveal which celebrity cameo in the ridiculous film is his favorite. Check out our chat with the multitalented Seth, see lots more pictures from the premiere, and check back for our very special video with the guys from the movie from their recent visit to our SF office!
Roland Mouret-clad Emma Watson, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson joined their This Is the End costars Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel last night in LA at the premiere of the apocalyptic comedy. Emma, who looked chic in a peplum top and slim trousers, is making the most of her latest visit to the West Coast; she'll also debut The Bling Ring tonight in Hollywood. Before the screening, we caught up with Seth, who cowrote and codirected the movie. He talked about yet another Freaks and Geeks reunion film in the near future. Seth said he and This Is the End's James Franco, who also starred with him on the TV cult classic and in Pineapple Express, are getting ready to shoot The Interview. The buddy comedy follows a pair of reporters who find themselves in hot water with Kim Jong-un in North Korea.
James couldn't join Seth and his costars for last night's premiere, but the cast still had plenty of funny friends and famous fans on hand for their big debut. Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig, Carmen Electra, Peter Facinelli, the guys of Workaholics, and Wilmer Valderrama all stepped out to show their support. This Is the End boasts plenty of celebrity cameos, including Rihanna and Paul Rudd, as well as a few surprise appearances. Here's a hint: one of Hollywood's newest dads just may be among them.
We've already gotten a tease of This Is the End, better known as the apocalyptic comedy starring just about every famous funny person, but the new red-band trailer provides a lot more footage, stars, and laughs. We've got Mindy Kaling setting her sights on Michael Cera, Rihanna getting hit on by Michael Cera, and Michael Cera getting impaled during said apocalypse. OK, maybe Michael Cera is the star of this particular trailer.
But wait! There's also Emma Watson hilariously wielding an axe, and a pretty entertaining fight between the film's real stars (Jonah Hill, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson) about who gets to eat a Milky Way bar. It's all very silly, but I'm now officially excited for this movie, which opens on June 14. The trailer is NSFW, but check it out after the read more
James Franco was honored in Hollywood yesterday with a star on the Walk of Fame. The actor's latest movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, comes out today. James has been gearing up for the Disney release for several weeks, kicking things off in February at a premiere in LA, where he waved to fans from Oz's infamous hot-air balloon before walking the red carpet.
James was joined by his former Freaks and Geeks costar Seth Rogen at yesterday's star ceremony. Oz director Sam Raimi, who previously worked with James on Spider-Man, shared a few words about the actor to mark the occasion, while his brother Dave and mom Betsy looked on proudly.
