Comic-book fan Seth Rogen is on the promotional trail for Observe and Report (watch his recent stop at The Daily Show), but the big story is that he’s dropped a lot of his funny-guy weight and has been looking pretty trim and dapper – although to his credit, he’s still got the big curly beard. The reason he’s done the diet-and-exercise regiment? To be remotely believable in playing a comic-book superhero known as The Green Hornet. Fandango’s got an interview with him, giving out the latest information about that project, as well as comparing and contrasting being an actor-for-hire on Observe and Report with being a writer/producer/star for The Green Hornet. Check it out. The punchline – The Green Hornet will be a lot like The Pineapple Express, but “a lot bigger… and less weed!”
And, just as a shout-out to the comedy gold that is The Late Show, here’s another quick Letterman clip.
