We’re Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. We’re the executive producers of Hulu’s new sci-fi action-comedy Future Man. It’s about a janitor who beats an impossible video game, and finds out the game is actually a training tool to find the savior of humanity. If you’re thinking “Hey that sounds like the Last Starfighter,” it’s intentional. He then goes on a journey through time to prevent his boss from curing herpes. Aiding him along the way are Tiger, a no-nonsense resistance commander from the future, and Wolf, another future warrior who likes hanging out in the past a little too much. It’s inspired by movies we loved growing up. Here’s the trailer and you can watch every episode on Hulu now: https://youtu.be/vJaUfpbEYIU.

Ask us anything. About Future Man. Or anything else. Ask us anything about anything.

WigglestonTheFourth916 karma

Are you worried that, 30 years from now, someone will make a movie about playing video games only to become the savior of humanity and they'll reference Future Man in the trailer as a joke?

SethAndEvan1105 karma

That would be a dream. Full circle.

daarock866 karma

Hi Seth, is there any chance in the future that you would be keen on doing a comedy of some kind with Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Concords, What We Do in the Shadows) or Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Thor Ragnarok)?...They are hilarious together and it would be comedic heaven if the three of you were involved some way

SethAndEvan1049 karma

I would love to those guys are geniuses

chachawhore755 karma

Seth! Congrats on Future Man. Unrelated question: I go to University of Vermont, and did you know that literally everyone of your frat brothers has you in their tinder pictures? No joke I see a picture of you on Tinder everyday.

SethAndEvan1234 karma

they seemed like a good fit and they let us do whatever the fuck we wanted.

Skydolize511 karma

I loved Future Man, binged it within the first 24 hours. Since you now have 2 hit shows, are you going to be able to keep pumping out hilarious movies??? That's the one bummer of binge watching a good show, no big audience to laugh and experience with.

SethAndEvan698 karma

We will NEVER stop making movies for the theatre! We'll just do both!

Are platform-exclusive shows like Future Man the future of TV? Do you see the big studios and distributors being relevant 15 years from now?

SethAndEvan275 karma

i hope so because I like making movies for movie theaters.

serenisms146 karma

Hi Seth and Evan! The two of you are brilliant. Simple question: what's the highest you've ever been and what are you most excited for in the future?

Hey guys, so I've been a fan since i was a kid and you guys are the reason i want to work in the film industry so what advice would you have for someone who wants to make their own movies and scripts?

SethAndEvan501 karma

Finish them! DOn't be the guy that writes half a script. Write a full script or make a film and post it! you have so many cool avenues these days! But no matter what, finish! Even if it's bad, then you have something finished to work off of and show others and get their thougths! Finish, then show others and take their precious free thougths!

SteveMcJ75 karma

Hey Seth! As a kid in college aspiring to be a comedian/actor, what’s your advice on how to be successful? More specifically, what’s the best way to someday work on a project with you?

P.S. Preacher and Future Man are dope. Keep up the awesome work.

SethAndEvan137 karma

make your own stuff and put it out in the world.

Chalupaca_Bruh74 karma

Hollywood seems to notoriously suck at adapting video games. Would either of you ever consider bucking that trend and taking a crack at an adaptation since you’re doing a doc on the Console Wars? If so, what franchise?

SethAndEvan163 karma

Bubble Bobble!

NinjaGoodra70 karma

What is your relationship with Nathan Fielder?

SethAndEvan133 karma

We went to high school with him!

coltonkemp63 karma

Long-time fan, first-time poster – here’s my piece. If weed isn’t legal in all 50 states in the next five years, i have no faith left in humanity. Everyone likes smoking weed. They have for thousands of years. They're not gonna stop anytime soon. It makes everything better. It makes food better. It makes music better. It makes sex feel better, for God's sakes. It makes shitty movies better, you know?

SethAndEvan81 karma

nice

MichaelG20562 karma

mess with me and I fuck you up like hulk hogan.

FearedGinger48 karma

Hello Seth and Evan! Thank you both so much for providing us all with such extensive opportunities to laugh. Your senses of humor are irreplaceable and unmatched. My question for you is a bit odd and self-serving. My last name happens to be Kronisch, not one that you commonly come across, if ever. When I saw the trailer for Future Man and my name being used in the show I thought I was either dreaming or someone was pranking me (perhaps it was some new advertising tech that inserted the viewer’s name into the video somehow?). Not the case. I neeeeeed to know: what is the origin of coming up with the name Elias Kronish? The fact that you have both said my name out loud is still mind blowing to me.

SethAndEvan68 karma

It was just a cool name that was also clearable! You submit names sometimes and they say you can't use it for one reason or another and of the names we liked most this one stuck!

mrrobledo1232 karma

Hey Seth & Evan! Are you interested in doing This is the End 2? Haha, cheers guys!

SethAndEvan151 karma

I don't think we'll be doing that! Our ending is pretty final. We can't top the backstreet boys.

Dunk097329 karma

Favorite movie this year besides Disaster Artist?

SethAndEvan97 karma

Thor:Ragnorak! Granted, I haven't seen it yet, but I think I'm gonna like it.

Kenyag1226 karma

What should I watch on Netflix?

SethAndEvan104 karma

I don't know which of our things is on netflix, but watch those!

elmatador1224 karma

Hey, so in the pilot episode of Future Man, is the line "Time out stop the bike" a call back to Terminator 2?

Follow up, how many times is too many times for watching T2?

SethAndEvan39 karma

it sure as fuck is.

Charpybro15 karma

Hi guys, huge fan.

I grew up sneaking into your movies (Superbad, Pinapple Express) and you guys pretty much shaped my sense of humor. Now I am attending Vancouver Film School to become a film maker so my question is, how do you feel that your films have inspired future film makers?

SethAndEvan39 karma

Love to hear people are diving into it! Making movies is fun! Writing is the jam! DO IIIIITTTT!!!!

tisha31915 karma

Hey guys! Big fan of This is the End and now of Futureman! Love it so so much and I'm cackling, yes cackling, every episode so far. I've just finished episode 7 so I have a few more left. Question: have you started talking to Hulu about season 2? Any news?

jaydb955 karma

Hey Seth and Evan,

Love all your movies! What was it like working with such a huge cast (who are also your friends) for This is the End? Would that be something you guys would consider doing again for a sequel or similar film?

Also can't wait to watch Future Man and The Disaster Artist!

Edit: Forgot to add that your Superbad anniversary trivia this year was really interesting so thanks for that too!

SethAndEvan10 karma

It was super tricky to work with that many friends at the same time as our directorial debut, but ultimately that's why it was a good movie so we regret nothing!

tomicompu3 karma

Also, what are some of your favourite albums of the year so far?

SethAndEvan13 karma

Bisessar32 karma

What else do you guys think you would be doing If you never got into the entertainment business?
