James Franco has revealed that Kanye West wanted he and Seth Rogen to perform their spoof of “Bound 2” at his wedding to Kim Kardashian in Paris next month.
Franco made an appearance on ABC’s The View on Tuesday to promote his Broadway play Of Mice & Men alongside the rest of the cast and he told the co-hosts that West did approach them about the parody.
"We did get feedback. Kim loved the video and we didn't hear back from Kanye so we kind of felt like he's not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he's not going to say anything,” said Franco, Us Weekly reports.
He added – revealing the couple’s wedding venue -- "But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone. We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it. And I'm pretty sure 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."
Franco and Rogen made a parody video of Kimye’s video back in November, with Franco playing West and Rogen playing Kardashian. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star tweeted at the time that they “nailed it” and that she loved the video.
Franco continued to say they turned it down, saying "I think it would have been awesome for about 10 seconds, but then there would be Seth with his shirt off in front of all the Kardashians."
