Pineapple Express Was Released 10 Years Ago So Seth Rogen Shared Some BTS Facts
Danny McBride was taped to a chair for a whole day, and got his head cracked open when James Franco hit him with a bong. Hollywood glam!
In case you wanted to feel ancient, Seth Rogen and James Franco's stoner action flick Pineapple Express turned 10 this week. Yep, we're officially 800 years old.
To celebrate the milestone, Rogen -- who not only starred as Dale Denton but also co-wrote the film with Evan Goldberg -- hopped on Twitter to share some trivia and behind-the-scenes factoids.
According to Rogen, he and Goldberg weren't just the scriptwriters but also Chief Joint Rolling Operators, as no one else on the set was able to do it as neatly as they could.
The pairing of Franco and Rogen was brilliant, but originally they had been cast in reverse -- with Franco taking the role of Dale and Rogen as the drug dealing Saul.
There was also the addition of Danny McBride to the mix, who was injured, taped to a chair and turned out to be too funny to kill off too quickly.
Rogen also shared a few facts about the mishaps onset, most of which came from the fact that a lot of the actors were doing their own stunts, resulting in quite a few injuries.
Despite coming out 10 years ago, the film also has a few relevant cameos and red carpet guests.
Happy 10th birthday, Pineapple Express! Can't wait until you turn 420.
