You loved them in “Pineapple Express.”

You’re fairly certain you’re going to love them in “This Is The End.” And now, James Franco and Seth Rogen are teaming up once again, this time for “The Interview,” in which they will play reporters who try to assassinate the president of North Korea.

“It’s Kim Jong-un,” Rogen told Eonline at last night’s premiere of “This Is The End.” “Literally Kim Jong-un in the movie. We figured it’s North Korea, you might as well make it Kim Jong-un.”

Worried they’ll be putting themselves in harm’s way by traveling to the communist nation, thereby jeopardizing any further collaborations? You can relax.  “We’re going to the foreign land of Vancouver, Canada,” said the actors’ friend and “Interview” producer Evan Goldberg.
