Goldberg, Rogen choose Poutine for last meal

One of the stars and the screenwriter of the meta-comedy "This Is The End" dropped by the Toronto Star last week to taste-test poutine and shill for their upcoming film.

Vancouverites Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg seen in this Star clip, sampled an array of poutine.

Here, they talk about how the movie idea came about.

The film, scheduled for release on June 12, follows the exploits of a bunch of Hollywood actor-friends (all playing themselves) who are confronted with the Apocalypse. "Survival is funny" could have been the tagline. Sadly it isn't, and I will see no money from that genius tag.

Jewishness is all over this movie. Aside from Rogen and Goldberg, the film also stars other heavyweight Jewish actors, including Montrealer Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill and James Franco. Non-Jews include Emma Watson, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Brampton, Ont. native Michael Cera.

It looks like it's going to be one funny end-of-the-world romp.
