MTV: "Your Highness" Interviews


I sat down with James Franco, Danny McBride, Justin Theroux and director David Gordon Green from "Your Highness" and talked about the movie's adept blend of the classic sword and sorcery / adventure quest genre and stoner comedy. I'm uncharacteristically against the stream of major film critics on this one: I loved it! Maybe I watched too much "Krull" as a kid.

Watch video of James Franco & Danny McBride HERE

David Gordon Green describes two killer deleted scenes that will hopefully make the DVD HERE.
