Yesterday I caught up with Seth Rogen and Will Reiser to hear about their upcoming comedy-drama 50/50 which is loosely based on Reiser’s life. He was diagnosed with cancer six years ago when he and Rogen were working together on Da Ali G Show. Though Rogen admits not all life events make for a movie, this story was film worthy and I definitely agree.
The two were worried about the audience’s reaction to their film when screening 50/50 to over 250 cancer survivors and patients at the LIVESTRONG foundation. But there was no need to be concerned as they received a standing ovation and an enormous amount of appreciation from the viewers.
Turns out laughter truly is the best medicine!Tags: 50/50 trailer, 5050, actor, atlanta, backstage, behind the scenes, cancer, comedian, comedy, Conn, Conn Jackson, Conn TV, connect, Director, entertainer, entertainment, friend, friends, funny, Funny man, Get, get connected, girls, Gordon, hilarious, hollywood, interview, Jackson, Jason, Joseph Gordon Levitt, laugh, Levitt, Livestrong Foundation, movie, movie trailer, producer, Red Carpet, Rogen, Seth, Seth Rogen, sexy, survivor, tumor famous talk, Will Reiser
