Over the weekend, poor Seth Rogen had his attractiveness impugned by the writers of Entourage when, in Sunday’s episode, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) posited that Katherine Heigl would not date a person who looks like Rogen in real life, as she did in 2007’s Knocked Up. Yesterday, we pointed out the outdatedness and ridiculousness of such an assertion, since the movie came out in 2007, and since then Rogen has been toning his physique to play the Green Hornet and at this point he’d basically be doing Heigl a favor. Well, guess who else took issue with the unnecessary, years-late put-down? Seth Rogen! He responded, terrifically, on E!’s Daily 10 yesterday, and the good folks at Movieline were nice enough to transcribe it.
“Yeah, those guys are assholes. I actually ran into Matt … Kevin Dillon in a Starbucks. And he’s like ‘You know, I’ve got to kind of apologize because apparently the guy who created our show doesn’t like you so much.’ And I said ‘Well, I have reason to believe because I think [showrunner] Doug Ellin is a moron from all I can understand so it makes sense he doesn’t like me.’ And I’ve kind of said some disparaging things about the show. Although in our defense, [producer] Mark Wahlberg called us misogynistic in an interview, so I think they kind of started that … It’s on. Luckily I never have and never plan on watching Entourage.”
How will the Entourage camp respond? Well, we just found out this morning that Cameron Diaz will play Rogen’s love interest in The Green Hornet, so maybe Ellin can work a joke about that into the 2013 season of his show.
