James Franco and Seth Rogen are going to be doing double duty on Aug. 17 on MTV. The pair will adopt their “The Interview” personas to interview stars attending the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which airs a week later on Aug. 24.
The announcement video, above, shows Franco as Dave Skylark, the host of “The Interview’s” fictional celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” Rogen — who though not featured in this video will be in the special — plays Skylark’s producer Aaron Rapoport.
Skylark humorously interviews the likes of Iggy Azalea, Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj during the promo. “Dave Skylark’s Very Special VMA Special” will air on Aug. 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. “The Interview” is due in theaters on Dec. 25, 2014.
