Sausage Party P Diddy Cameo

The cast of Sausage Party has one of the most impressive voice casts of any animated comedy. Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig are the leads, but the rest of the food (as well as a hygienic item and a couple humans) are brought to life by Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, Salma Hayek, Anders Holm and co-directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan. However, there’s one voice who was once set for a cameo but fell away for a perplexing reason.

Sean Combs (aka P. Diddy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puff the Magic Dragon or whatever he’s calling himself this year) was once slated to have a voice role in Sausage Party. But as one certain detail on the project became more clear to him, the rapper/actor ended up falling away from the project. Find out why we didn’t get a Sausage Party P Diddy cameo after the jump.

Sausage Party Prank

This weekend’s raunchy, R-rated animated flick Sausage Party imagines what it would be like if the food in our grocery aisles was alive. The movie is hilarious, twisted and outrageous, but that wasn’t enough for Seth Rogen. In addition to bringing talking foods to the big screen, he also wanted to bring them to a real life grocery store with a hilarious and creepy Sausage Party prank.

A special effects team set up a few different animatronic foods in a real grocery store and Seth Rogen made them talk live from another room. The initial shock of people realizing they’re seeing talking food is funny in itself, but then the conversations they have with the food in question are even better. Read More »

Sausage Party Review

Sausage Party is a hard-R comedy. Around the time the project was first announced, actor, producer, and co-writer Seth Rogen described it as “an R-rated Pixar-style movie” that’s “fucking filthy” and “really, really, really dirty.” Pretty much everyone who has seen the film, including our own Jacob Hall, agrees with Rogen that it truly is one dirty movie. The film is R-rated, but Rogen and all involved had to make some cuts to secure that rating.

Below, learn what was removed to take the Sausage Party rating down to an R instead of an NC-17.

Sausage Party Preacher

Sausage Party screened during San Diego Comic-Con this year. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-wrote the raunchy animated comedy about supermarket food that dreams of being taken home by a customer. Once purchased, the food panics that they are being eaten. Rogen was at a press conference for his AMC series Preacher and discussed the mashup of genres in Sausage Party, although he corrected me when I suggested it blended R-rated comedy with the animation genre.  Read More »

With two episodes left in its first season — and now only one as of publication — Preacher came to San Diego Comic-Con. The cast and creators of the show gave a press conference, where Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg dodged questions about the finale or second season with jokes. They did reveal some noteworthy behind-the-scenes stories though, particularly that a frequent collaborator of theirs was once considered for the lead role of Jesse Custer.

“We had a nice conversation with James Franco at one point,” Goldberg said. “He looks very Jesse-ish. He was into it but just literally he has to make 4,000 things in 20 different formats. It would take up his time and he wouldn’t be able to do a Tori Spelling movie or whatever the hell he was going to do.”  Read More »

Sausage Party Trailer

Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.

It’s up to you whether you watch the new red band Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »

Sausage Party TV Spot

In about a month, we’ll all be chomping down on some tasty cookout food when Independence Day rolls around in July. Thankfully, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s animated comedy Sausage Party isn’t hitting theaters before that to dissuade us from murdering all the food we eat.

A new Sausage Party TV spot has a bunch of new footage from the animated movie that imagines a world where humans don’t know that food is alive. Foods like hot dogs, carrots, bananas, peanut butter and anything you can think of come to life just like the toys in Toy Story. But in Sausage Party, rather than being cherished by humans, they’re viciously prepared, cooked and eaten, which comes as a big shock to the innocent food that usually celebrates being bought in the grocery store.

“We were very concerned about our budget on this show, and how good our visual effects would be,” co-director and executive producer Seth Rogen says at the start of the Preacher audio commentary, as he discusses the opening scene set in space. “We said, ‘Let’s not even try to make it look like good visual effects; let’s make it look like visual effects from 1967, so this is what we came up with.” Only days after the series’ excellent pilot aired, Rogen and co-director Evan Goldberg‘s commentary for the Preacher pilot–which performed well in the ratings Sunday night–has been made available online.
