FROM Evan Goldberg
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg John Horn of the Los Angeles Times talks with long-time collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

They talk with Horn about making their directorial debut, This Is the End , how they got some raunchy comedy past the MPAA ratings board and how how they learned they need to make R-rated movies on small budgets. x
