The Interview Skylark Tonight MTV Special Iggy Azalea

The trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview is pretty insane. In the film, a famous entertainment journalist and his producer get an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Before heading to the interview, the U.S. government asks the guys to assassinate the dictator.

So why the heck would this journalist, out of everyone, get this exclusive interview? Your first clue was on MTV over the weekend as James Franco‘s character, Dave Skylark, hosted a Very Special VMA Special featuring interviews with musicians Iggy Azalea, Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj. Seth Rogen’s producer character, Aaron, also plays a huge role in the special.

Watching this special, which runs 20 minutes long, you’re sure not only to laugh, but totally get why the North Korean dictator of the film – which opens December 25 – would agree to the Interview. Watch The Interview MTV Special below. Read More »
