Seth Rogen and Chris Pine are among the actors who are being considered to star opposite Reese Witherspoon in McG’s This Means War. The story [via The Wrap], “follows two best buddies whose friendship is put to the test when a woman moves into their spare room. As they fight for her affections, New York City is literally left demolished in their wake — including such landmarks as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.” Chicks dig guys who destroy cities.
Of course, Rogen and Pine are just on a wish list, but it is interesting that the role of “FDR” (a character named after the late President because his parents had high hopes for him) could be played by two wildly different actors. However, The Wrap speculates that Rogen could take a role initially offered to James Franco and Pine taking FDR. It’s slightly easier to see Rogen taking a role that Franco would have played, but that may just be because of the rapport they had in Pineapple Express.
