Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg take us to The End

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in Studio Q (CBC)

Listen

From the Best of Q, Jian chats with longtime friends and collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg about This is the End -- their movie meta-take on a group of Hollywood actors hunkering down as the apocalypse rages outside.

The duo, who also wrote Superbad and Pineapple Express together, explains their Canadian advantage in the American comedy scene, why they think friendship should rival romantic love as the premise for great movies, and how a bunch of Vancouver high school buddies found a way to make their inside jokes relatable. 

"We've personally cut out some of our favourite jokes," said Goldberg.

"Yeah, if they don't play then they just don't play," said Rogen.

Original show aired May 29, 2013
