Remember this year’s all-glorious music video depicting Seth Rogen lying topless across James Franco’s revving motorbike? Of course you do, even it’s inspiration, Kanye’s Bound 2, couldn’t rivel the two provocateurs that make up our favourite bromance. We can only imagine how much Kim was seething when she saw Seth oozing more sex appeal than her. Ah ha honey... Just in case they hadn’t been provocative enough, the twosome is back to take on that other celebrity cult figure of contention beginning in ‘Kim’...Kim Jong-un of North Korea. Duh. This parody may be explosive in a more literal sense however.
The two comedy actors have a film due out in October this year entitled The Interview, which centers on a talkshow host and his producer invited to interview the notorious North Korean leader, only to lead to the duo getting dragged into international politics by the CIA to assassinate King Jong himself.
Ah sure it’s only a laugh, right? Wrong. According to a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman, it’s “an act of war”. They went on to add “ [It] is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated [...]If the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless counter-measure will be taken”. *Tugs collar* Even Yeezus can have a laugh and some cheeky banter.
