"Seth Rogen’s the new Cary Grant" Shocker!

From http://www.vanityfair.com, where some classic Hitch poses are recreated with modern actors.

Whoever organised the project shows a superb sense of humour in this shot, by having Seth Rogen, slacker supreme, take the role of Cary Grant, dapper supreme! Hilarious!!

Seth looks to be bursting out of those Armani trousers. Running that 10 metres in the corn field is probably the first exercise he’s done in decades! I hope they had an oxygen tent nearby!

Cary fucking Grant? Have these morons ever heard of George Clayton? Sorry, George Clooney! Not only does he look 10 billion times more like Grant than Rogen does, he in fact looks like Grant’s grandson! Maybe he is.

The 2008 Hollywood Portfolio

Hitchcock Classics
Alfred Hitchcock left a peerless legacy of the stylishly macabre. In this year’s Hollywood Portfolio, Keira Knightley, Javier Bardem, Seth Rogen, and other stars channel iconic moments from the director’s greatest hits. Here are the results.
Don’t miss Jim Windolf’s behind-the-scenes report.
Plus: video from the making of the portfolio.

The idea for the famous cornfield scene came about when Hitchcock determined to reverse, as dramatically as possible, the clichéd movie trope in which a man is forced to run for his life from some sinister force. “How is this usually done?” asked Hitchcock. “A dark night at a narrow intersection of the city. The waiting victim standing in a pool of light under the street lamp. The cobbles are ‘washed with the recent rains.’?” So Hitchcock instructed his production designer to put his hero in a wide-open expanse in which he couldn’t hide—a completely flat cornfield in the middle of nowhere.

The original still: Cary Grant. MGM/Photofest.
