It's the end of the world, but the cast of The Apocalypse is shaping up fine. Grantland brings word that Aziz Ansari has joined the cast of the upcoming end-times comedy, which will mark Seth Rogen's directorial debut (alongside Evan Goldberg). He's the latest addition to an "Apatow all-stars" cast that already includes Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson, and what's more, they'll all be playing themselves ... albeit exaggerated versions of themselves who learn that the world is going to end while partying at Franco's mansion. Prepare yourself, Aziz: Seth told us that with this project, he hopes to become the best director of all time.
