Kanye West Asked James Franco, Seth Rogan to Perform at His Wedding

Yeezy requested actors to revive their "Bound 2" parody for his upcoming marriage ceremony with Kim Kardashian.

Published April 23, 2014

Seth Rogan and James Franco were asked to perform their "Bound 2" parody ("Bound 3") during Kanye West's wedding festivies.

Yeezy and Kim Kardashian are rumored to be tying the knot next month and wanted the actors to reprise their satirical take on his Yeezus track, Franco revealed on The View Tuesday (April 23).

"Kim loved the video, and we didn't hear back from Kanye," Franco recalled. "We kind of felt like he's not bashing us, but he probably hates it and he's just not going to say anything, but then two weeks ago we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone and we thought he was going to let us have it, but he loved it and not only that — I think I can say it now because I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen — he wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding at Versailles."

Although the 36-year-old This Is the End actor is skeptical about the gig, he's not all that disappointed by the likelihood that it won't happen in real life. "I think it would have been awesome for about 10 seconds and then there would be Seth with his shirt off in front of all the Kardashians," he pointed out. 

West released his video for "Bound 2" last year, co-starring Kardashian. The visual, shot in front of a green screen with Kardashian topless and straddling 'Ye on a motorcycle, got mixed reviews and earned more than 30 million hits online. In comparison, Franco and Rogan's version snatched up just over 8 million.
