Lizzy Caplan to join Rogen and Franco in The Interview


Lizzy Caplan is in talks to take a leading role in The Interview, Variety reports.

She would star opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco in the flick, set to be the next directorial effort for Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Rogen and Goldberg had a hit earlier this year with This Is The End.

In The Interview, Franco will star a talk show host, and Rogen will play his producer.

According to the logline, “[They] find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea.”

It is unknown which part Caplan would take on. Probably not North Korea’s prime minister.

Caplan – now starring in Masters of Sex and previously seen in Mean Girls, Party Down, and Bachelorette – briefly appeared on the short-lived TV series Freaks & Geeks, on which Franco and Rogen first met.
