Seth Rogen goes reverse 'Pretty Woman' in new comedy (TRAILER)

Feb 16 2019, 1:09 am

Poor Seth Rogen, what is it with women in movies being so un-attracted to his character?

In his latest flick,¬†Long Shot, the Vancouver funnyman stars as Fred Flarsky, a journalist hired as a speechwriter for Charlize Theron’s Charlotte Field, the Secretary of State, who was once his childhood crush and former babysitter.

Similarly to Katherine Heigl’s character in Rogen’s¬†Knocked Up, Flarsky and Field don’t seem like an obvious match but the two form an unlikely romance, with a few chuckles, pot smoking and signature Rogen flair in between.

The trailer references Rogen’s Flarksy as a reverse ‘Pretty Woman’ — just more “bearded and crasser” than Julia Roberts while Theron is the most charming version of Richard Gere.


The trailer debuted on Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show this morning where Rogen says he wanted to do a movie with Theron “for years.”

Long Shot, the¬†Jonathan Levine¬†directed comedy, hits theatres on May 3 and also stars¬†Alexander Skarsg√•rd, Andy Serkis,¬†O’Shea Jackson Jr. and¬†Randall Park.
