Talking With <em>Neighbors</em> Actress Carla Gallo
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's 4:02 p.m. on a balmy November Friday in Venice, California, and the late-afternoon twilight has begun to set in. I'm waiting outside Kreation Kafe, an organic luncheonette, to conduct an interview with Hollywood actress Carla Gallo. She is just two minutes late, but I'm already starting to assume the worst. Between her busy audition schedule and navigating through gridlocked L.A. traffic during peak hours, it would be unsurprising if meeting with the press were an afterthought. Would I be forced to sit on the bench outside the bohemian eatery, sipping an herbal tea concoction through one lonely straw as my audio recorder gathered dust? Perhaps I had underestimated her punctuality, as a second later, I look up and see the dainty brunette cross Abbot Kinney Blvd. "You must be Alex," she says, smiling as she shakes my hand. "I actually haven't been to this restaurant before, but it looks really good." Her hazelnut-brown eyes match the rich color of the wooden table we're seated at, ...

New 'RoboCop' Trailer Is Here, But Let's Talk Samuel L. Jackson
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The new trailer for Sony's remake of "RoboCop" arrived on Thursday, showcasing the film's action-packed set pieces and a pair of likely scene-stealing performances from Michael Keaton and Jay Baruchel, among others. The biggest takeaway, though, is Samuel L. Jackson. "I play a character by the name of Pat Novak, who's sort of a combination of Rush Limbaugh and Al Sharpton, if you can combine those two people. So I refer to him as Rush Sharpton," Jackson said at Comic-Con this past summer. Yes to all of that and Jackson's hair and that American flag and everything coming out of his mouth. Change.org petition for a Pat Novak spinoff movie starts here. "RoboCop" is out in theaters on Feb. 12, 2014.

Oh, Canada: Are They Laughing At Us, or With Us?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Canada has a long and storied history of great comedy. From Kids in the Hall to French Canadian YouTube star Jon Lajoie, Canadian comedy is one of our prime exports. Everyone (at least everyone North of the border) knows that SNL would be nothing without our guys and gals bringing the laughs. Here are just some of Canada's great comic minds: Will Arnett, Dan Aykroyd, Jay Baruchel, John Candy, Jim Carrey, Michael Cera, Tom Green, Phil Hartman, Elvira Kurt, Eugene Levy, Norm Macdonald, Howie Mandel, Rick Mercer, Lorne Michaels, Mike Meyers, Leslie Neilsen, Catherine O'Hara, Russell Peters, Seth Rogan, William Shatner and Martin Short. This is why I love seeing non-Canadian comedians in Canada, because they always let the nation-specific jokes fly. "Do you guys have Saved By the Bell here?" asked comedian John Mulaney, which was the cleaned up version of Bill Burr's quip, "Canada: you don't lock your doors and nobody jerks off!" Sure, we're easy to laugh at -- if you don't act ...

'RoboCop' Trailer: Dead Or Alive, You're Coming With Him (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Americans desperate for a figure to rally behind would be wise to watch the first trailer for Sony's remake of "RoboCop." Directed by Jose Padilha, the film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title police machine, an honest cop who gets exploded by the bad guys and turned into RoboCop. Fans of Paul Verhoeven's subversive and violent original film will note that this version of "RoboCop" carries a PG-13 rating, but what the film lacks in gore, it makes up for in big names. Supporting players include Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel and Samuel L. Jackson, wearing the best wig this side of Lady Gaga. "RoboCop" will serve and protect on Feb. 7, 2014. Watch the trailer above or head to Apple to see it in HD.

How 'This Is The End' Almost Ended
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK -- This is the end. Unless that is the end. Since opening last week, the apocalyptic comedy "This Is the End" has earned $33 million at the box office, making it one of the biggest hit comedies of the year. But despite its name, the rapture riot by writer-directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg struggled to find its conclusion, and even had to reshoot the film's final absurdist minutes. (The rest of this article discusses the movie's ending, so avert your eyes if you'd like your laughs unspoiled.) In "This Is the End," a fiery apocalypse arrives while Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel and others (all playing themselves) are at Franco's Hollywood Hills home for a party. Some of the public has been raptured into heaven, but the actors are left to fend off demons while supplies dwindle and their Hollywood friendships fray. Eventually they realize that they, too, can make it into heaven if they redeem themselves with altruistic acts. Some die horribly, b ...

Zaki Hasan: INTERVIEW: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Craig Robinson on This is the End
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been creative partners for almost a decade now, with their history of uproarious collaborations including such recent comedic benchmarks as Superbad and Pineapple Express, as well as one of their earliest projects, the self-referential short film Jay &amp; Seth Versus the Apocalypse. It was this latter project that formed the basis of the pair's most recent endeavor, This is the End (now in theaters), which also marks their directorial debut. The film, starring Rogen, Craig Robinson, James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride as themselves in the aftermath of the Rapture, is one of most original comedies I've seen in awhile, serving as a perfect showcase for the style of humor they've turned into their trademark. I had the chance to chat with Rogen, Goldberg, and Robinson recently, and they made my job extremely easy, as all I had to do was set them up and watch the magic as they played off one another.

Smoking Weed With The Cast Of 'This Is The End'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The following article is provided by Rolling Stone. By Erik Hedegaard Inside the House Cafe on Beverly in L.A., Seth Rogen watches with great speculative interest as an e-joint rolls across the table and comes to rest an inch or two from his fingertips. One of his furry eyebrows hoists itself up, and if he suddenly latched onto the black THC-filled cylindrical object, it would certainly be no surprise. He's one of Hollywood's biggest potheads, gifted with the enviable ability to buckle down at work (acting, directing, writing, producing, everything, amazingly) while still consuming extravagant quantities of weed. He's also got a terrific fondness for starring in movies, among them Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and 50/50, in which weed plays a central role, either thematically or recreationally, with him shuffling through, always the goofy but lovable "stoner idiot," as Rogen likes to say.

The apocalyptic comedy This is the End will open at a multiplex near you on June 12. In This is the End we are introduced to six friends by the names of Seth Rogen (Seth Rogen), James Franco (James Franco), Jonah Hill (Jonah Hill), Craig Robinson (Craig Robinson), Jay Baruchel (Jay Baruchel) and Danny McBride (Danny McBride), who attempt to stay alive while the world ends. As always, we answer every questions that you could possibly have about This is the End. Q: Is there any chance that I will like This is the End? A: Yes. There are a lot of chances, actually. Q: How is This is the End not one big circle jerk? A: While it's true that there is plenty of literal masturbation in This is the End, it's also the case that, metaphorically, the film does a surprisingly good job of appearing to exist for the lone purpose of satisfying its stars' egos. Q: To what "end" does the title This is the End refer? A: The apocalypse as described in the Book of Revelation. ...

Seth Rogen And James Franco Made 'Pineapple Express 2' ... Sort Of
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
To celebrate April Fools' Day and simultaneously viral market the new film "This Is The End," Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride have put together a trailer for "Pineapple Express 2." This time, they must assassinate Woody Harrelson (played by Jonah Hill, because obviously). Thug life, indeed. "This Is The End" is Rogen's apocalypse comedy where the actor cast his famous friends as variations on themselves (Franco, Hill and McBride are joined by Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel and a cast of dozens). The comedy was co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("Superbad") and co-directed by the pair as well. "We thought it'd be funny to see really famous people die in super graphic ways," Rogen said at WonderCon this weekend (via EW.com). "People were into it. At first we thought they'd be insulted or something like that — and some of them were -- but most of them weren't. They were into it."
