Lizzy Caplan, who stars in Showtime’s new fall series “Masters of Sex” alongside Michael Sheen, is in talks for the female lead in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s next writing and directorial endeavor, “The Interview.” Rogen and James Franco will star with Caplan (reuniting three “Freaks and Geeks” alum).
Rogen and Goldberg had a significant sleeper hit this past summer with apocalyptic comedy “This Is the End,” which recently passed the $100 million mark. The two directed and penned that title, and it was under their Point Grey Pictures banner, as “The Interview” will be.
The duo also have animated “Sausage Party” in the works, which they’re co-penning.
Caplan had a recurring role on “New Girl,” and was also one of the four leads in 2012 Sundance and VOD hit “Bachelorette,” with Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Rebel Wilson.
