Randall Park to Play Kim Jong-Un in Seth Rogen-James Franco Comedy ‘The Interview’


The Interview, an upcoming comedy by actors/directors Seth Rogen and James Franco, is about to start filming and Asian American Commercial Watch favorite Randall Park has been cast to play Kim Jong-Un.

According to PolicyMic, the “plot centers around two fictional journalists who go to the hermit State of North Korea to talk to Kim, but are tapped by the C.I.A. to terminate the 29-year-old autocrat.”

Yes, you did read that correctly, this is a comedy about North Korea and assassination.

We know that Randall does comedy well, but will anyone buy someone so handsome as the “supreme leader?” Oh well, it is Hollywood, so it’s to be expected that they “upgrade” the look of KJU (even if he already is the sexiest man alive). I guess we should just be grateful they didn’t turn it into a role for a white guy, right?

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
