President Barack Obama will seemingly do anything to promote the Affordable Care Act and get young people to sign-up for Obamacare--even if it means appearing on Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns. The video, which was posted on the website Funny or Die, shows him putting up with Galifianakis’ awkward interviewing demeanor while answering random questions.
Although Galifianakis’ seemed to be tough on the President, he was able to get back at the comedian with some of his answers. For instance, when Galifianakis told President Obama he is not able to run for a third term, the President responded with, “Actually, I think it's a good idea. If I ran a third time it would be sort of like doing a third Hangover movie. Didn't really work out very well did it?”

Yesterday, Seth Rogen made an opening statement in front of Senate at a hearing on Alzheimer's research. His testimony, while still possessing a handful of classic Rogen-esque jokes, was heartfelt, well-researched, and showed a serious side we'd never seen before. The Pineapple Express star shared his personal experience with Alzheimer's, illustrating the effects of the disease he'd seen firsthand with his wife Lauren Miller's mother.
"So few people share their personal stories," he said at the hearing. "So few people have something to relate to. I know that if me and my wife saw someone like me talking about this, it would probably make us feel a little less alone."
