Rogan joins Pegg movie
...playing an alien
Seth Rogen and Jason Bateman have joined the cast of Simon Pegg’s next film, Paul.
The movie revolves around two sci-fi geeks – Pegg and long-term collaborator Nick Frost – who make a pilgrimage to Area 51 where they encounter an escaped alien.
Knocked Up star Rogen will provide the voice of the alien, called Paul, while Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman plays the government agent tracking him down.
Saturday Night Live cast members Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader have also joined the cast of the film, billed as ‘a comedy about being an alien in America, even if you\'re not from outer space’.
Shooting begins in New Mexico next month.
