Seth Rogen Tweets ‘Pineapple Express’ Facts on 10-Year Anniversary of Stoner Comedy

Actor lights up Twitter with movie trivia

Seth Rogen blessed “Pineapple Express” fans with an impressive array of “fun facts” about the stoner comedy which celebrated its 10th anniversary Monday.

Rogen, who co-wrote the film, took to Twitter to confirm facts tweeted by fans of the film and to offer his own. For example, the origin of its title.

“There was NO strain of weed called #PineappleExpress when we made the movie,” he wrote. “We said ‘if one day, people are out there selling weed called Pineapple Express, it worked.'”

Mission accomplished.

He said that “Pineapple Express” was actually the name of a Hawaiian weather system — co-writer Evan Goldberg thought it would be a good name for a movie and saved it for the perfect one.

Rogen also revealed that him and co-star James Franco were originally written in to play each other’s roles, marijuana user Dale and marijuana dealer Saul, respectively. Franco asked to switch roles, and Rogen nonchalantly agreed.

In another casting surprise, Stormy Daniels played the ex-wife of dealer Red (Danny McBride), and the two are seen together in a photograph.

Here are some highlights from Rogen’s Twitter feed:
