This might be one of the most bizarre article headlines ever, but one that’s totally true to who Seth Rogen is as a person.
The star of the upcoming action comedy, The Interview, is taking advantage of Colorado being the first state to legalize recreational marijuana by inviting fans to a special screening of the movie where he and the audience will get baked before the proceedings. While I personally don’t use drugs in any capacity, this sounds like a pretty crazy experience and one that I’d love to be a fly on the wall for.
Not too many celebrities would even admit to their liberal usage of marijuana, so the fact that Seth Rogen is going this far to embrace it speaks volumes of just how honest and down to earth he must be in real life. It’s also a really cool promotional stunt for the film, and one which will certainly incite some interesting buzz as it gears up for release next month.
Check out Rogen’s Tweets below and let us know if you’d like to watch The Interview with the actor while getting high.
We are going to do a screening of #TheInterviewMovie in Colorado where I get baked with everyone first, and we can smoke weed in the theater

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.
