EP. 319 — The Fast and the Furious LIVE! (w/ Seth Rogen)

Seth Rogen joins the HDTGM Fast Family to go back to the franchise’s inception with 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, a movie where the big villain is a scared trucker trying to save his VCRs. LIVE from Largo in LA, they cover Dom & Letty’s romantic motorboat, the cops’ cappuccino obsession, the origins of Race Wars, and the difference between wet and dry NOS. Plus, Seth shares F&F producer Neal Moritz’s lesson on “logic vs. cool” and June reveals she had no idea that Brian used to be a cop.
