James Franco interviews Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, and Jason Derulo in Character as Dave Skylark.
James Franco will play airhead journalist Dave Skylark in the new film "The Interview", and for next week's MTV VMA awards, Franco has decided to interview a few of the performing artists in character.
With a similar approach as Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy interviews for MTV years back, the interaction seems semi-scripted, the artists clearly in on the joke, but possibly improvising to some degree.
He tests Iggy's fanciness, and obsesses over Nicki's ass (including a very clever misreading of "Super Bass') to hilarious results. Seth Rogen also reprises his role from the upcoming film.
The 2014 MTV VMA awards air this Sunday, August 24th.
