Earlier this week, Seth Rogen revealed he was recently in the same room as the guy who canceled Freaks and Geeks. Unable to help himself, he called him out for what happened. Naturally, fans of the departed show were all over the hilarious news, but they were also a little disappointed than the actor didn’t go into more specifics about exactly what happened. Fear not though. He did today.
Speaking to The Huffington Post, Rogen revealed the awkward conversation actually took place while he was at Saturday Night Live, hanging out with his buddy Paul Rudd. He was in the studio when he suddenly heard someone say the name of the guy who canceled Freaks and Geeks. And, well, I’ll let Seth Rogen take it from here…
As soon as I heard it I was like, 'Oh my god it's you.' And Paul Rudd was there. I was like, 'This is the guy who canceled Freaks & Geeks!'
This whole thing is like an episode of Seinfeld. Someone screwed George over fifteen-years-ago, or in this case Seth Rogen, and when he finally finds himself in the same room with the guy, he can’t help but let the WTFs fly. Given the guy also kind of screwed America over by cutting down a great show in its prime, however, it feels great that Seth Rogen called him out. Sadly, it probably won’t lead to any more seasons of Freaks and Geeks though because the scheduling would be a nightmare and it’s unclear why everyone involved would still be old and hanging out in the same town.
In other news, it’s great to know people just show up at Saturday Night Live and hang out. That’s definitely what I would do if I was famous because whether the week’s episode is hilarious or not, there’s always new and interesting high stakes comedy being attempted. That’s a creative environment that would be fun to live inside, at least briefly.
