Seth Rogen and longtime friend/writing partner Evan Goldberg are well known for creating classics like Superbad and Pineapple Express, but what some fans might not know is the comedic duo also helped rewrite Bad Boys II.
Before the release of Superbad in 2007, Rogen and Goldberg were struggling to make ends meet, so Judd Apatow stepped in and hired the duo to assist with some rewrites. Although it might sound hard to believe, the BC native confirmed his connection yesterday during a Twitter exchange with entertainment writer Eric Vespe.
Been seeing a few questionable takes about Bad Boys being better than Bad Boys 2. Upon a rewatch of both I must declare all such takes to be foolish and objectively incorrect. Does Bad Boys have Michael Shannon in it? Nope. Does it have horny rats? Also, no. Case closed. pic.twitter.com/EQ4syj3Moa
