Seth Rogen as Rand

Seth Rogan’s mulletheaded Rand Gauthier, the carpenter who robbed Tommy Lee’s house, is a far cry from his red carpet look.

Nick Offerman as Miltie

Nick Offerman’s stunning turnaround into Miltie, the guy who teams up with Rand to sell the tape, would never fly with Parks & Recreation’s Ron Swanson.

Medalion Rahimi as Danielle

Medalion Rahimi went from solving crimes as a special agent on NCIS to wearing a crime of a wig as Erica’s roommate Danielle. At least she’s not impressed by Rand.
