The cast of the upcoming movie The Night Before stopped by Shade 45's Sway in the Morning and were put to the test. Just like any rapper who comes to show, Sway challenged the actors to the show off their rhyming capabilities in the "Five Fingers of Death."

Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie and Joseph Gordon-Levitt stepped up and did their best with freestyling on the spot. Sway gave the actors some classic instrumentals to rock over and all three did an admirable job when their turn to rap arrived. Mackie's freestyle seemed like the most technically sound while Rogen's was the funniest. The trio's Christmas-themed comedy The Night Before hits theaters this Friday (Nov. 20).

Speaking of Seth Rogen, the comedian recently named his favorite hip-hop albums of all-time. Rogen's selections included Wu-Tang Clan's Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders and The Roots’ Do You Want More?!!!?
