The Hacked Sony E-Mails Are A Distraction From The Larger Issues, And It’s Wrong To Use E-Mails Stolen From Anyone, Ever

I don’t take George Clooney that seriously, most of the time, but his interview with Deadline spoke to a lot of things I’ve been reflecting on about my job lately. In it, Clooney spoke about a petition of support he tried to circulate after Sony was attacked by what the FBI has now concluded were, in fact, North Korean hackers. The petition read:

“On November 24 of this year, Sony Pictures was notified that it was the victim of a cyber attack, the effects of which is the most chilling and devastating of any cyber attack in the history of our country. Personal information including Social Security numbers, email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers and the full texts of emails of tens of thousands of Sony employees was leaked online in an effort to scare and terrorize these workers. The hackers have made both demands and threats. The demand that Sony halt the release of its upcoming comedy The Interview, a satirical film about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Their threats vary from personal—you better behave wisely—to threatening physical harm—not only you but your family is in danger. North Korea has not claimed credit for the attack but has praised the act, calling it a righteous deed and promising merciless measures if the film is released. Meanwhile the hackers insist in their statement that what they’ve done so far is only a small part of our further plan. This is not just an attack on Sony. It involves every studio, every network, every business and every individual in this country. That is why we fully support Sony’s decision not to submit to these hackers’ demands. We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty. We hope these hackers are brought to justice but until they are, we will not stand in fear. We will stand together.”

James Franco & Seth Rogen Are Going To Be On “Naked And Afraid”

James Franco & Seth Rogen Are Going To Be On "Naked And Afraid"
"You're supposed to be a hot Australian survivalist!"

I can think of no one I would rather exile to an island with not even the clothes on his back than James Franco — so I will obviously be watching him and Seth Rogen on an upcoming episode of “Naked and Afraid.” Each episode of the Discovery channel show features two people forced to fend for themselves, without clothes, on an island for an extended, albeit it relatively brief, period of time. I imagine that Franco and Rogen were getting blazed one night, binging on episodes, when they had the brilliant idea to sign up for show themselves. “Dude.” “Duuuuuuude.” “Let’s do it, dude.” “Dude. Totally.” “You’re in, dude?” “Dude, I am so in.” Etc. Etc. This morning on “Good Morning America,” we got to see a short preview of the episode (skip ahead to 1:30), which looks like it’ll be pretty great, especially if one of them thought to hide an ounce of weed on his, uh, person before stripping down. Naked, afraid … and totally fucking high. Now that would be a very special episode. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Seth Rogen Discusses A Groundbreaking New Concept: A Movie Wife That Likes To Have Fun

Seth Rogen On Movie Marriages

“My wife read the ["Neighbors"] script. She’s a writer. She’s one of the people who was like, ‘This isn’t how it would be. We get along, I want to have fun too…’ And then as we started talking about it, that actually became the most exciting idea of the movie to us, that we could portray a couple where the wife is just as fun-loving and irresponsible as the guy, and they get along really well. In a comedy, that’s almost non-existent. An actual healthy couple that really likes each other.”

Seth Rogen tells Studio 360 how his new movie, “Neighbors,” ended up defying the “nagging, super serious wife” trope and making Rose Byrne’s character just as fun-loving and misbehaving as her hubby. Turns out we can thank Seth’s wife, Lauren Miller (cowriter of the hilarious “For A Good Time Call…” BTW), for shaking some sense into the dudes who wrote the original script. Seth also had some really sweet things to say about how his own marriage is nothing like movie marriages: Keep reading »
