Seth Rogen joins an elite club of famous guys: Men who have appeared on the cover of Playboy.
The star of "Observe and Report" is the ninth man on the team with Peter Sellers, Burt Reynolds, Steve Martin, Donald Trump, Dan Aykroyd, Jerry Seinfeld, Leslie Nielsen and Gene Simmons.
In the interview in the April issue of Playboy, he discusses a wide range of topics including:
His decision to lose weight: "It was on ‘Observe and Report.' We shot the movie in Albuquerque, which is at a very high altitude. I'm somebody who can barely breathe in Los Angeles, which is at sea level. I can't walk up a flight of stairs. Albuquerque is at an elevation of about two miles, and the air is very thin. There were some big action scenes. Every day it felt as if I were climbing Everest. So the stunts were really hard, much harder than they should've been. But they're nothing compared with what we're planning to do in Green Hornet."
His look: "Woody Allen created a look for small, nebbishy Jews. ... I created a new look for rotund Jews. I have seen more guys lately who kind of look like me. It's an easily attainable look."
Doing his own stunts: "I accidentally broke a guy's nose. I punched a stunt man in the face and broke his nose. He got a little too close. He claimed it wasn't my fault, which was very noble of him."
On whether he would do the sort of nudity pal Jason Segel did in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall": "It would have to be funny. I'm a very serious actor when it comes to nudity. I'm like Meryl Streep."
On where he'd be if his movie career hadn't worked out: "Working in a video store or a comic-book store is the only thing I could possibly enjoy as much. I'd be one of those guys you look at and say, ‘What the [bleep] is wrong with him? Why is he working at this [bleeping] store? Why doesn't he get out and do something with his life?'
"I would definitely be that guy. Maybe I'd do a combo: a video-game-and-comic-book store. Yeah, that would be cool. That's definitely what I should do if I crap out in movies. You know, that sounds so good it's almost worth quitting for."
