Last we heard from Seth Rogen, he was calling in to the show from Michael Strahan's dressing room at "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" as producers were trying to usher him out as Strahan got changed and today we got him into the studio for a real live visit.
Catch some highlights of the always-hilarious Rogen below!
His Version of the Now-Infamous Phone Call
Seth explained that he was scheduled to talk to Howard at 7:45am and was running a bit late, so he needed to get to a phone and some quiet space immediately when he got to Kelly and Michael. Having the choice of either Michael Strahan or Hugh Jackman's dressing rooms, Rogen chose the host seeing as he was less likely to get upset about it.
Shortly into the call though, it became apparent that those who worked for Strahan were very nervous as they kept writing progressively more aggressive signs telling Seth that he had to leave – all of which he waved off and ignored. "They very quickly wanted me the f-ck out of there," he told Howard. "It was super weird if you ask me."
Still, he thinks it was probably a bigger deal for Strahan's people than Michael himself (who later hopped on the phone with Howard as well) as they must have thought they'd get in trouble. Seth said he thinks for Strahan, it was "one of the cooler things he got to do that day."
Neither Michael nor Kelly brought it up on the show during his interview though. "That's how bullshit the media is," Seth quipped.
Reconciling With Justin Bieber
Another story that lives on Stern Show infamy comes from Seth's 2014 appearance in which in addressing a tweet to Justin Bieber, Seth reaffirmed his feeling at the time that the pop superstar was kind of "a piece of shit."
"I doubled down … I did a class double-down," Seth explained to Howard, laughing. "I can admit, again, harsh words given the circumstance," he conceded though. "But it was a joke."
Recently though, he was forced to confront Justin in person after they were both booked on Ellen DeGeneres' show. Rogen told Howard that he didn't actually find out until he was in his car on the way and his mom called to tell him it was Justin Bieber Week on Ellen. "I do this a lot where I say super f-cked up sh-t about famous people never thinking that I'm going to have to be face-to-face with them one day," he continued.
Howard wondered whether Seth was scared Bieber would beat him up considering he's a pretty fit guy. "Maybe. I probably have honestly 80 pounds on him," he mused. But he admitted the idea was certainly swimming around in the back of his head.
It turned out though that Justin was reportedly a fan. So after Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, quickly stopped in to make sure it was fine for him to come by, Justin himself showed up. "It was very polite," Seth recounted, albeit a little uncomfortable. Seth complemented Justin's Comedy Central roast and Justin asked a lot of questions about when Seth was working on. "I tried to find common ground with him," Seth explained. They ultimately took a photo together and buried the hatchet without ever really addressing the incident directly.
Howard and Seth also discussed the size of Justin's cock, which was photographed by paparazzi recently. "It made me feel good about my dick because everyone was like, 'This guy's got a huge dick' … To scale – to his scale – it's like an ok size. I thought it was a pretty good sized dick." Still, Rogen said he will guarantee his own balls are saggier than Justin's. He also divulged that Michael Strahan seemed like he had a "giant dick" because he's just gigantic.
An Update on Seth's Upcoming Animated Movie 'Sausage Party'
His Take on the Late Night Shows
Rogen, who frequently promotes various projects on the late night circuit told Howard that he doesn't really have a preference between them, explaining that now the whole goal isn't even to talk about the project, but instead to make a new viral hit online like he did with Wozniak on Fallon.
Personally though, he enjoys Kimmel's show because it feels like you can always tell a crazy story with him. "I personally know him the best … I really like him," Seth said.
'The Night Before'
This morning Seth was specifically in to promote his Christmas movie called "The Night Before," which also features Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.
Rogen told Howard that it's sort of a "coming-of-age" story and has a lot of "emotion" in it. The movie opens this Friday November 27 (opposite the latest installment of "Hunger Games"), so Seth joked that he is competing for the No. 2 spot. "They're still hungry? Come on!" he cracked.
Amy Pascal Took Seth's Office
As a result of the hacking scandal over "The Interview," Amy Pascal stepped down from her position at the head of Sony and as a result, has taken over Seth's office in the lot.
"It was the best office on the lot," he told Howard. But they knew it was coming. Pascal had been telling them for a while that if she were ever not the head of the studio anymore, she would take that office back from them.
"We didn't fight it … I don't think we could have honestly," he explained, considering they were pretty directly related to her leaving the position. Rogen assured Howard that he and Pascal were still close and there were no hard feelings.
JD Would Try Pot … But Only With Seth
Howard told Seth later in the interview that the Stern Show's own JD Harmeyer has never smoked pot and says that he would only really do it if it were with Rogen.
Seth said that while he would, it really worries him when people only try things because of him. "That's weird and it scares me," he told Howard, because he's worried people are then doing things they really shouldn't around him. And on top of that, Seth smokes super potent ganja, so when people at a party of wherever take a hit for the first time, he thinks: "You're about to have the worst five hours of your life."
Howard soured the deal a little by telling Seth about JD's sheet-washing habits (or lack thereof). Listen to his response below, but for a preview, this about sums it up: "F-cking sick. Ewww. That's disgusting."
