LAS VEGAS (AP) — Attention Hollywood casting agents: Seth Rogen is looking for someone to play the part of baby North in the next Kim Kardashian-Kanye West spoof with pal James Franco.
The 31-year-old actor made the press rounds Thursday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to promote his upcoming movie, "The Interview" (co-starring Franco).
"Michael Cera would be good," joked Rogen. "Get Annie Leibovitz to take the pictures."
Rogen says he's "a huge fan of Kanye West" and that's at the heart of his mimicry.
"I'm like just really into his music, and when we made the original (spoof of West's "Bound 2" music video featuring Kardashian), we were filming 'The Interview' in Vancouver and we kept trying to go to Kanye West shows that kept getting canceled or the dates kept changing and it happened like two or three times. We were just talking about him all the time and then the video came out so we were just like, 'Let's just try to do that.'"
Their remake, titled "Bound 3," featured a topless Rogen doing his best Kardashian impression on a motorcycle driven by Franco as West.
Most recently, the pair spoofed Vogue's April cover photo — featuring Kardashian and West — by Leibovitz.
Franco's head is seen on West's body and Rogan's face is seen on the reality star.
"The Interview" is scheduled for release in October.
