This is really awesome! Not only is our friend Randall Park going to be appearing on the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat this fall, he’s also playing a LEGITIMATE BAD GUY, Kim Jong-un in the Seth Rogen / James Franco movie The Interview.
From the movie’s Facebook page:
In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
Here’s the poster with Randall on the bottom tweeted by Seth Rogen. Gotta love Russian Constructivism.
I think we’re going to have round up a bunch of people to go catch this when it hits theaters in October. Who’s down?
Congrats, Randall. Can’t wait to see this one.
