Soooo, about that animated film Seth Rogen wrote with his BFF Evan Goldberg? The one about the talking sausage who falls out of a shopping cart and has to find his way home? It’s going to star all of their buddies.
Although it’s not clear who will have the honor of playing the eponymous sausage, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Michael Cera, and David Krumholtz will be joining Rogen in the voice cast (It’s a “This Is the End” reunion!). Appropriately enough given the title, the only woman cast so far is Kristen Wiig, along with Nick Kroll (who you should really be watching on “Kroll Show”) and… Edward Norton? OK, Edward Norton!
The actual plot description seems kind of existential and possibly upsetting for non-meat eaters, as the little sausage is on “a quest to discover the truth about his existence.” You know that saying about how the sausage gets made? Yeah, it’s not pleasant. Plus, once they return to their aisles before the big July 4th sale, guess where they’re headed after that? Straight onto the grill, probably! And then into people’s tummies!
Maybe that’s why this is going to be rated R.
This “Sausage Party” is slated for the summer of 2015, but you can find a sausage party at your local multiplex just about any time of the year.
Gallery | Funniest Moments From ‘This is the End’ Cast
- James Franco: ‘Look at All My Sh*t!’ (‘Spring Breakers, 2013)
While his stoner character, Saul, is unforgettably hilarious, his “Spring Breakers” persona is on an entirely different level. As Alien, Franco dons cornrows, flashes his grill, and invokes the gangster swagger of the real-life ATL Twins, giving us a whole new side of the actor-artist-professor-everything. When Alien shows off his crib to the girls — colored shorts, guns-on-guns-on-guns, and nunchucks included — his unwavering commitment to the ridiculous role is so hilarious it may well leave you in tears. Sadly this clip is cut short, but check out our favorite Franco quotes from “Spring Breakers” for more laughs.
- Seth Rogen: ‘High as a Kite’ (‘Pineapple Express’ 2008)
One of the biggest challenges we’ve ever faced may be choosing Seth Rogen’s funniest moment. While we love his Star Wars sex puns in “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” his wise advice in “The 40 Year Old Virgin,” and his ridiculous “Superbad” cop, it is Dale’s freak-out in “Pineapple Express” that makes us laugh out loud every time. Dale is certainly high as a kite, but not from birdwatching.
- Jonah Hill: Seth’s Divine Miracle (‘Superbad,’ 2007)
Seth (Jonah Hill) wants Jules (Emma Stone). Jules wants alcohol. Jules asks Seth to buy it. Seth thinks Jules wants more. Through his very methodical analysis of Jules’s request, Seth gets a little too excited (and misguided) thinking that his night is going to end in some “P and Vagi.” While “Superbad” is a goldmine of great Hill moments, this scene is undoubtedly the greatest (and probably full of the crudest sexual humor).
- Danny McBride: Baking a Cake (‘Pineapple Express,’ 2008)
All of McBride’s crazy characters are hilarious, but his Red has by far the funniest lines of any in “Pineapple Express.” The drug dealing, kimono-wearing, cat-mourning Red somehow manages to survive getting bashed into the sink, a bong breaking across his head, a gunshot to the stomach, and much more. But his funniest moment (besides his infamous “Thug Life” line) is his sincere dedication to baking his dead cat a birthday cake.
- Craig Robinson: ‘Ah! Like the Terminator!’ (‘Hot Tub Time Machine,’ 2010)
We know some of Robinson’s best lines are as Matheson in “Pineapple Express,” but there’s another equally funny (perhaps forgotten) moment from one of his other comedies. In this scene, Robinson’s Nick, a failed singer who works at a dog spa, jumps up after snorting a giant pile of cocaine to explain the time-travelling hot tub via the “Terminator” movies. This is Robinson at his craziest, and we love it.
- Jay Baruchel: Dirty Pillow Pink Eye (‘Knocked Up,’ 2007)
Baruchel has played the charming geek (and even the modest shy guy), but he proved he could keep up with the big guys in “Knocked Up.” As Jay, Ben’s (Seth Rogen) roommate, who has severe attachment issues and has been on Ritalin most of his life, he mixes his usual charm with characteristic Apatow-Rogan crude humor. In this scene, he shamelessly admits to instigating the fart-pillow-pink-eye chain. (Don’t try this at home).
- Christopher Mintz-Plasse: ‘It’s 10:33′ (‘Superbad,’ 2007)
The moment the world was introduced to Fogell (a.k.a. McLovin, a.k.a. Christopher Mintz-Plasse) was an unforgettable one. The nerdy, scraggly white dude that tries to act like a badass (fake ID, almost hitting on girls) ends up being the coolest dude in the film. But this scene was the first, best, and probably most-quoted of McLovin’s, where he flashes “West Side” like it’s no big deal and — get ready — tells a girl what time it is (ohh yeah!).
- Michael Cera: ‘These Eyes’ (‘Superbad,’ 2007)
What do you do when you’re stuck in a room of guys on drugs who think you’re somebody else? You don’t accuse them of being “ill-informed” and you play along. Cera’s Evan, pretending to be “Jimmy’s brother,” sings his way out of trouble with a classic The Guess Who song. He gets really into it, flailing his hands and hitting the high notes. Sing, Cera, sing!
