What’s better than a movie that stars Seth Rogen? A movie that stars Seth Rogen… twice.
The trailer for the forthcoming HBO Max comedy film, An American Pickle, just dropped, and Rogen is seen masterfully playing opposite himself in the two main roles.
The movie is based on Simon Rich’s short story, Sell Out — which was published in the New Yorker back in 2013 — and follows the bizarre story of Herschel Greenbaum (Rogen,) an immigrant who comes to America to pursue his dreams, falls into a giant vat of pickles, and is preserved by the brine for 100 years.
When Greenbaum comes to in present-day Brooklyn, he meets his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also Rogen,) and the two attempt to bond.
In case that doesn’t sound delightful enough, Succession star Sarah Snook is also in the film — An all-star cast.
An American Pickle starts streaming on HBO Max on August 6.
