But the big topic on the blog table today is Rogen. My kind of twisted youth came out in support of Rogen's comedy, even though some TV ads reduced the title to (as I now like to call the movie) is far more romantic than raunchy thanks to the sweet chemistry between Rogen and costar Elizabeth Banks.Lauren Anne Miller stars opposite Ari Graynor in the raunchy-but-sweet comedy For a Good Time, Call..., and audiences might well be wondering, Who is she and where have I seen her before?Miller's best-known role up to now has been as Seth Rogen's girlfriend and now wife — she's even appeared in a handful of his movies in small parts.Seth Rogen: I remember actually the first magazine I saw. MTV: Have you guys seen porn spoofs of movies that you've been in? Did you guys go to a porn set at any point, or do any of that type of research? Rogen: Apart from a musky odor, I think it was exactly what it was like. My friend stole it from our local drugstore, and I could get so graphic here, but I won't. Rogen: I'm sure there's a "40-Year-Old Virgin" one. Banks: I'm in the movie "Shaft," so there's clearly a version of that! Banks made her film debut in the low-budget independent film Surrender Dorothy (1998), and is known for her roles in such films as Wet Hot American Summer (2001), Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy (2002–2007), Seabiscuit (2003), The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), Role Models (2008), The Next Three Days (2010), Pitch Perfect (2012), The Lego Movie (2014), and The Hunger Games film series (2012–2015).In 2014, she portrayed Melinda Ledbetter, the girlfriend and later wife of the Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, in Bill Pohlad's film Love & Mercy and made her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, whose M opening weekend gross set a record for a first-time director.
Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks recently sat down with MTV News to discuss their newest film, Kevin Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno." They recalled their first exposure to porn, the filming of their "love" scene, why they don't think they need to visit a real porn set and more. Do you remember the first time you saw a porn magazine or a movie? I don't know that it's much different from what we saw.
On television, Banks had a recurring role as Avery Jessup on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock, which garnered her two Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
She also had recurring roles on the comedy series Scrubs and Modern Family, the latter of which earned her a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.
With their friend Delaney, the couple set out for auditionees for their porn film, but in the process of filming, they realize they feel more for each other than they had before.
For those that don't already know, the second half to that "Zack and Miri" title is "Make a Porno", three little words that have caused a lot of fuss lately.
