Seth Rogen and James Franco might be good pals and one of Hollywood’s most unlikely--and beloved!--comedy duos, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t step back and see each other for who they really are. For instance, Rogen thinks Franco is “a weird guy,” much like, well, most of America. Weirdly, though, Rogen promises that Franco is perhaps slightly less weird than we all think he is.

We’ve seen the green band trailer, we’ve seen the naughtier red band trailer, and now we have the final, ultimate trailer for the Seth Rogen and James Franco action comedy ‘The Interview,’ which features a whole lot more Kim Jong-Un. According to James Franco’s character, he’s not so bad—he does give an adorable puppy as a gift (if this year’s film trends are any indication, that puppy’s life may be in danger), and he really digs Katy Perry.

‘SNL’ scored a major win this past weekend with ‘The Hunger Games’ star Woody Harrelson’s return hosting gig, and we’re keeping positive for Cameron Diaz this coming Saturday, but what of the final 2014 slots? Get ready for ‘SNL’ December, with James Franco, Martin Freeman and Amy Adams all taking turns as host! Also, Nicki Minaj and One Direction. If that’s your thing.

James Franco's 'Saturday Night' Documentary: A Must Watch for Any 'SNL' Fan

EDIT
by Mike Ryan September 26, 2014 @ 1:25 PM
There’s something to be said for a documentary that can be interesting to a potential audience member who had no prior interest whatsoever in the topic of the documentary. In this respect, James Franco’s ‘Saturday Night’ – which chronicles the making of one episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’ from start to finish (which is now available on Hulu Plus) – sort of fails. But, to be fair, I’m not sure that was ever the point. If someone has no interest in ‘Saturday Night Live’ whatsoever, ‘Saturday Night’ isn’t going to be particularly appealing; it’s the definition of “wonky.” On the other hand, for people who do like ‘Saturday Night Live’ (this reporter falls into that category), boy, ‘Saturday Night’ is an absolute delight. It ranks alongside Tom Shales' and James Miller’s ‘Live From New York’ as a must see/read for ‘SNL ‘ fans.

'The Interview' Red-Band Trailer: Seth Rogen and James Franco Are Gettin' Rowdy in North Korea

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are back! The new red-band 'The Interview' trailer shows the duo, who brought us such classic debauchery as 'Superbad,' 'This Is the End' and 'Pineapple Express,' are already starting up some drama with their Kim Jong-un assassination story. If that premise alone isn't enough to make you gasp, how about some NSFW talk of "Matthew McConaughey goat f***," and getting "f***** by RoboCop"?

James Franco Adapting 'Rant' From 'Fight Club' Author Chuck Palahniuk

Hard to believe that author Chuck Palahniuk has had only two of his many novels adapted into films -- after the brilliant 'Fight Club,' there was only 'Avengers' star Clark Gregg's indie adaptation of 'Choke,' which not a whole lot of people saw. (It starred Sam Rockwell. It was fine.) But after several years and some failed attempts by others, actor/writer/director/professional college student/"artist" James Franco has officially optioned the rights to bring another Palahniuk novel to the big screen.

We may have to wait until Christmas to see James Franco and Seth Rogen in 'The Interview,' but the pair are already hard at work making sure that audiences are extremely, perhaps uncomfortably familiar with their characters through a 'Very Special VMA Special.'
