Seth Rogen is on the cover of this month’s GQ “Comedy Issue” (Hey, you know what’s funny? Wearing designer shoes and secretly liking men! Gun fingaz!). Despite being on the cover of such a lame magazine, Rogen proves to be a man after my own heart by dissing both Michael Bay and Entourage.
First the funnyguy says that he’s the reason—or at least part of the reason—his pal Jonah Hill turned down a role in director Michael Bay’s Transformers sequel. "I can see if Steven Spielberg’s calling you, asking you to do something, how that’s hard to turn down," Rogen tells writer Alex Pappademas. "But what I said to Jonah was, ‘You want to make a movie about fightin’ robots? Make your own movie about fightin’ robots. You can do that. That’s on the table now.’ "
It sure is, right next to the bong shaped like a cock.
The 26-year-old Rogen, who stars with James Franco in the upcoming stoner flick Pineapple Express, also takes a shot at Entourage. Sounds like he still may have some hard feelings toward HBO because years ago the suits at the cable network rejected a pilot that he wrote with Jason Segel and a pre-The School of Rock Jack Black. "I just remember feeling really bitter," Rogen says. We thought the stuff we were writing was funny—and it’s pretty much the exact same stuff that we’re doing now—and it just seemed crazy that no one else liked it. You start to question your own sanity. Like, ‘Our HBO pilot isn’t funny, but Entourage is?’ "
I love that he’s ripping Entourage, and the fact that he’s doing it in GQ is pretty ballsy, considering the ultimate life goal of 70% of GQ’s readership is wear expensive clothes and be friends with a famous person.
