Dear friend of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and noted crazy-pants Dennis Rodman is finally — finally! — chiming in on the Sony hack and “The Interview,” the controversial Seth Rogen comedy that supposedly caused it all. “If the North wanted to hack anything in the world, anything in the world, really, they are going to go hack a movie? Really?” Rodman tells the Hollywood Reporter, insisting that North Korea was not really behind the cyber-attack.
Coincidentally, Rodmanhas his own North Korea-related film, a documentary that just premiered at Slamdance. And the regular visitor to the Axis of Evil member state has a plan to ease tensions caused by the film — or at least insert himself into the conversation. “I would ask Seth and all those involved in the movie to go to North Korea with me. And then do an interview with me about the movie,” he says. Somehow, I don’t see Rogen going for that right about now.
