The Interview

Hot on the heels of a release date push to Christmas Day and news of digital alterations being made to avoid riling up North Korea anymore than they already are, The Interview isn't slowing down their marketing brigade. In fact, it gets a big push in the youth market this weekend as James Franco will appear in character as entertainment tabloid TV host Dave Skylark with a half-hour special on Sunday, August 17th at 9/8c on MTV, interviewing music superstars like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo before the VMAs. Franco's character seems to be a dimwit, but surely he'll be kept in line by his show's producer Aaron Rapoport, played by Seth Rogen, who will also be appearing in the special. Watch a tease below!

Here's a tease of the MTV special with James Franco & Seth Rogen's characters from The Interview:

And if you haven't seen the teaser trailer for Rogen & Goldberg's The Interviewwatch it right here.

The Interview is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of This is the End previously, and the co-writers of Superbad, The Green Hornet, Pineapple Express), with a story the duo wrote with "The Daily Show" scribe Dan Sterling. In the comedy, James Franco plays the handsome talk show host of "Skylark Tonight" who finds himself and his producer (Rogen) into a dangerous CIA organized plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea under the guise of a television interview. Columbia Pictures will be releasing Rogen & Goldberg's new comedy The Interview starting this holiday season on Christmas Day.
