Seth & Beth make porn

11.16.2007
According to Variety, director Kevin Smith has found his Zack and Miri to make a porno together, and their names in real life are Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. The two have been cast as the leads in ZACK & MIRI MAKE A PORNO, Smith’s tale of two platonic friends who make a porno for some extra cash, and end up falling for each other. Rogen was rumoured for the part, and ever since Rosario Dawson had to drop out (the role was written for her), we had no idea who’d be cast as Miri. I think Banks is a perfect fit in the Smith universe, and needless to say, so is Rogen. Having said that, it may be a touch strange so see Rogen exiting such a pronounced comedic universe (Apatow’s) and entering another one. But then again, exiting and entering are what pornos are all about, so maybe this will work out. What do you think?
Extra Tidbit: In case you forgot, Rogen and Banks both starred in THE 40-YEAR-OLD-VIRGIN. She was bookstore broad.

I'm not going to discuss the Smith thing, in fact I'd purposely avoided this link because I figured that it had to do with his upcoming which I would prefer to just be surprised about.

But Elizabeth Banks is the shiznit. I absolutely ADORE that woman.

Meh.

I'm going to have to agree with the Smith-bashers. When you come out with a film that is smart, witty, and different than everything else you deserve to be celebrated for your originality. However, when all of your films fit that same style you quickly go from original to recycled and expose yourself as a one trick pony.

Is it just me or this sounds like a boring plot ? Kevin Smith is highly overrated as a director. He is a fairly good writer but his direction is flavourless.

Damn, that's some awesome casting. I love Kevin's movies, and Seth Rogen has been fantastic in everything he's had a role in. Sweet.

Come on Seth! Don't do a Kevin Smith movie!!!! You're on a roll! You got Hollywood by the balls!

This is not the way to go!

You've learned from, produced with, written with and starred alongside great modern comedic talents (Apatow, Carrell, Ferrell etc) - Smith is not in their league. He's a guilty pleasure at best. At best!!!

On the plus side, perhaps you can give the script the punch-up I am positive it needs.

Remember

Rogen is awesome, but isn't the funniest thing about him how he can come up with random shit off the top of his head. While Smith makes you stick to the script and not improv.

Fuckin A

Ever since Smith started talking about how awesome he thought Rogen was in Virgin I assumed it was only a matter of time before he cast him in one of his own flicks. I totally dig this. Rogen's definitely got chops as a comedic actor, so watching him deliver Smith's dialogue should be good shit.
