'50/50' star/producer Seth Rogen and writer Will Reiser

Adam comments that no one wants to [bleep] him because he looks like Voldemort. What makes you think Voldemort doesn't get laid too? SR: That's a good point. Just probably not with the type of girls that [Adam would want]. WR: When I think of Voldemort getting laid, I think more about Mormon fundamentalists screwing 14-year-old girls. That's what I think of. Women are attracted to power. SR: It's true. Voldemort is very powerful. [Laughs.] [Adam] only looks like Voldemort, though. He doesn't wield the power. WR: The original joke for that was we said he looked like "Powder." SR: But we realized Powder gets laid in the movie! Like, "Doesn't Powder get laid?" WR: And also the reference. We were like, "We don't think that 18-year-olds will know who Powder is." SR: It was a more contemporary reference. Powder [bleeps], though. WR: But [Adam actually] looks more like Powder than Voldemort. SR: It's true. WR: He was more like Voldemort on the inside. SR: [Laughs.] That's the subtext.-- Matt Pais Click here for the full Q&A
