In this hilarious promo video for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, James Franco interviews some of music's hottest musicians. Franco is in character as Dave Skylark from his new Seth Rogen produced film, The Interview, hitting theaters near Christmas. In the 30-second clip, Franco talks to Iggy Azalea about Arnold Schwarzenegger, teases Jason Derulo about his name and completely mispronounces one of Nicki Minaj's songs.

Although those three artists are the only ones seen in the trailer, there's no telling who else is going to join Franco on that couch. The segment will act as a half-hour VMA special, airing this Sunday (Aug 17) at 9 p.m..

You can catch the MTV Video Music Awards August 24 at 9 p.m..
