Adam DeVine and Zac Efron to Star in 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates'

Workaholics' Adam DeVine and Zac Efron are starring in a movie together. According to THR, DeVine has just signed on to join Efron in an upcoming Fox comedy called Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates directed by Funny or Die's Jake Szymanski. The movie is based on the true story of Mike and Dave Stangle from Albany, New York, who tried to find wedding dates on Craigslist. The film will follow "the hard-partying and immature brothers putting out an ad for dates and coming across a pair of honeys that can out-party and out-immature our slovenly heroes." Neighbors writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien wrote the script.

'Neighbors' Had a Huge Opening Weekend and Its Audience Was Shockingly Mostly Female

The Seth Rogen-Zac Efron comedy Neighbors came out this weekend, earning $49 million at the box office, the highest-grossing opening weekend for a live-action comedy this year. Surprisingly, women made up 53% of the audience for the film this weekend, which isn't exactly what you'd expect from a raucous, R-rated comedy about a war between a family and a frat house. Sure, Rose Byrne, Neighbors' female lead, has a huge part and a lot of funny moments and good-looking guy Zac Efron is in it, but it is still a pretty dude-centric to go over so well with the opposite gender.

I don't want to spoil too many of their beautiful, reverent verses, so I shall only say this: Merry Christmas to all, and to all a fried penis.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron Are Returning for 'Neighbors 2' Next Year

Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Jimmy Fallon Get Girly in "Ew!"

Jimmy Fallon continued his super girly teen sketch "Ew!" last night with Neighbors stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Efron is pretty flawless as a selfie-loving girl, while Rogen is only convincing as the kind of teen who would find Gary Oldman cute.

Watch Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in the Trailer for 'Neighbors'

Here's the brand new trailer for the movie Neighbors, a new comedy out May 9, 2014. Completely unrelated to the 1981 Dan Aykroyd-John Belushi bomb that shares the same name, Neighbors stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a couple with a new baby whose lives are ruined when a fraternity house (led by Zac Efron) moves in next door to them. Directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), the movie features a supporting cast that includes Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lisa Kudrow, Jake Johnson, Ike Barinholtz, Jason Mantzoukas, Brian Huskey, Bobby Moynihan, and Jerrod Carmichael.

Parks and Rec star Aubrey Plaza just landed a big screen role opposite soon-to-be legendary comedy team Zac Efron and Robert De Niro. Deadline reports that Plaza has been cast in Dirty Grandpa, which follows Efron as an "uptight twenty-something who embarks on a road trip before his wedding to bond with his recently widowed grandfather (De Niro) only to find that his grandpa is a foul-mouthed lunatic on a mission to get laid during Spring Break." Plaza will play Lenore, "a savvy, beguiling party girl looking for fun on Spring Break." Zoey Deutch and Dermot Mulroney also appear in the film, which is slated for a release [...]

Watch Seth Rogen and Zac Efron Vibe It Out with the 'Workaholics' Guys

Here's a new clip from Workaholics, in which Seth Rogen and Zac Efron interview to become the guys' new cubicle neighbor (to promote their movie Neighbors because synergy). Rogen gets a little annoyed after Efron spends the whole interview sucking up, and unsurprisingly the winner gets chosen solely for their finest masculine physical attribute.

Jason Bateman, Zac Efron, Leslie Mann, Goldie Hawn to Play a Mourning Jewish(?) Family

This Is Where I Leave You is the story of four siblings who come back to their old home to sit shiva for their deceased father. The increasingly un-Jewish looking Bateman, Efron, and Mann are in talks to play three of these siblings and Hawn will be the mother. Jonathan Tropper, the author who wrote the original novel, is adapting the film for Adam Shankman (Rock of Ages and Hairspray) to direct. Considering Shankman's background, I expect a festive version of the Mourner's Kaddish and rip-roaring dance number where the cast saunters around the house covering mirrors.
