Seth Rogen still gets work as a producer on The Boys and in Amazon’s Invincible series as Allen the Alien. But thankfully people don’t have to see him, like they did in Rogen’s Superbad and Knocked Up phase.
(Did you know that Seth Rogen distanced himself from his old Pineapple Express buddy James Franco? He made a public statement saying he’d not work with the guy again because of a #MeToo debacle.)
Not a stranger to getting in social media spats online, on Thursday Seth Rogen told Late Show host Stephen Colbert about his beef with Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
Cruz for his part had this to say to Fox News: "We know Sen. Cruz is busy fighting to save the country from Biden’s disastrous policies. It's surprising to see that he's living rent free in Seth Rogen’s head at the same time."
The anger that’s rustling up Seth Rogen stems from Ted Cruz’s decision to contest the 2020 election results. A routine that Democrats did in 2017 on the grounds of so-called Russian interference.
Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar tried lecturing Cruz at a recent Senate Voting Rights Hearing. But Ted acted aloof, scrolling through social media on his phone all the meanwhile.
In the interview with Colbert Seth Rogen went on about some sort of baseball analogy, framing it as the process of how Ted Cruz’s “words caused people to die.”
"If someone's trying to murder someone with a baseball bat and someone's yelling at that person to stop, is that a feud between the baseball bat wielder and the person yelling at the baseball bat wilder? Feud implies two people hitting each other with baseball bats. Ted Cruz is a fascist. He denies the reality of the election. His words caused people to die and I'm making jokes about it. Is that a feud? I don't know. To me, it doesn't seem like a feud. To me, it seems I'm pointing out the fact that he's a terrible man whose words have resulted in death."
Colbert suggested to Seth Rogen that he ought to get high with Senator Cruz, to see if that’d loosen it up. In response Seth smirked that the lowly Cruz hanging out with a Hollywood bigshot like Rogen would boost his credibility.
Also the baseball analogy doesn’t work because a deranged leftist shot Steve Scalise at a Republican charity game practice in June 2017.
