Seth Rogen revealed that he secretly helped rewrite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys 2.

This weekend, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will reprise their fan-favorite roles as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett in a third installment of the Bad Boys film series. Of course, with the arrival of a new Bad Boys film, many are reflecting on the previous two Will Smith and Martin Lawrence action comedies, including entertainment writer Eric Vespe.

In a Twitter post, Vespe made the case for the Bad Boys 2 being a better film than the first installment, which prompted actor Seth Rogen to respond by revealing that he actually helped rewrite the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence sequel. When comedian Paul Scheer replied by stating that he wants to know more about Seth Rogen’s Bad Boys 2 rewrites, the latter explained that Judd Apatow had been brought on to work on the script and enlisted him and Evan Goldberg to help.

Because Seth Rogen and Goldberg will still up and coming at the time, the duo needed the money and accepted the Apatow’s offer to pay for their assistance with the Bad Boys 2 rewrites. While Seth Rogen said he does not remember much of what he contributed to the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence film, but he did recall two jokes from the film that were definitely part of his rewrites, including the scene where Marcus Burnett accidentally fires his gun in a car.
