What comes after the apocalypse? For Seth Rogen — co-director, co-writer, and co-star of This Is the End — it’s another comedy featuring his old Freaks and Geeks buddy James Franco.

The film is called The Interview, Rogen said on SiriusXM’s EW Morning Live today. It stars Franco as an entertainment journalist — specifically, “a much dumber, more of a joke version of Ryan Seacrest” — who’s tasked with assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Wait — what? Listen to Rogen explain it all in this clip from today’s show, which also features Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jenna Morasca. You can hear the interview on SiriusXM as well: A recap of this week’s best Morning Live moments will run Saturday and Sunday at 2 a.m., 3 p.m., and 8 p.m. ET.
