Even though funnyman Seth Rogen is coming in for a live appearance in November, he has so many projects going on that he called in this morning to give an update on his latest film "Steve Jobs," where he plays Steve Wozniak, opposite Michael Fassbender.
Though the film is based off of the book by Walter Isaacson, Rogen admitted he has not read the book. "I lied to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin about reading the book – and I lied to Walter Isaacson's face not two days ago about reading the book!" Rogen recalled laughing.
Howard was surprised that Seth had to audition for the part considering he's such a big star, but Rogen conceded that he gets "that you would want to make sure that I didn't ruin your fancy dramatic movie."
A couple of minutes in, Seth told Howard that he was actually calling in from Michael Strahan's dressing room as he prepared to go on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael." To make things even better, he was just "a little bit" high.
Speaking of smoking pot, Rogen told Howard that during the filming for "Steve Jobs," it was the first time in a long time that he wasn't baked for the large majority of the time. "My real fear was getting like dragged into a corner by Danny Boyle and him like looking at me and being like, 'Are you f-cking high right now, man?'"
"It's just an amazing movie" though, he summed up.
As the conversation progressed it became increasingly clear that Strahan's crew wanted Seth to leave as they prepared for Michael to come by. Howard and Seth wouldn't take the hint though and forced Strahan into hopping on the phone. He wasn't so happy about it: "Howard, hello man. I love you, but I'm not talking to you. I can't afford to have my relationships break up again," Strahan joked.
After speaking for a little longer, Seth had to leave. "They genuinely don't want me in this room. This is not a joke," he noted. Still, he'll be back with us in November and promised he would spill everything then.
