Seth Rogen: He smokes a lot of weed. He appears in a lot of movies about weed. Conan O’Brien suggested he’s the most successful stoner of all time. During a recent stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host suggested a higher accolade. Kimmel suggested there is a hypothetical Mount Rushmore, and that Rogen’s fuzzy face belongs on it.
“On that (Mount Rushmore),” said Kimmel during the interview, “I think obviously Willie Nelson is on it, Snoop Dogg obviously on it, I think Woody Harrelson is probably on it.”
Rogen says that Harrelson’s face probably would look good made of rock. Kimmel goes on to say that Rogen’s proficiency for smoking might’ve bumped off Cheech and Chong, who come as a pair. “They don’t seem so involved with that anymore,” explained Kimmell.
Woody Harrelson has actually taken a hiatus from smoking pot since filming the Han Solo movie. Not to mention Cheech and Chong continue to make weed-related comedy and brand their name on all kinds of paraphernalia. But there’s no question that Rogen smokes a whole lot of weed. As Rogen sat down, he explained he’s probably been blacklisted by Steven Spielberg after blowing weed in his face, Spielberg interrupting Rogen just as he was lighting up.
“That’s why I’m no the lead of Ready Player One,” said Rogen. “I think he’s prejudice”
Rogen was on the show to promote Hilarity for Charity, a Netflix comedy special to support research on Alzheimer’s. The special features sets and sketches from Rogen, Kumail Nanjiani, John Mulaney, Sarah Silverman, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Jeff Goldblum, Post Malone and an animated short from Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland. Money is raised from several universities, which can try to outbid each other for the opportunity to have Rogen stop by to light up with their students.
Rogen says that year after year the University of Vermont keeps winning the auction. “These guys are tenacious,” said Rogen.
