Jordan Peele’s new Twilight Zone reboot seems to have an inexplicable pull on big-name comedians: The CBS All Access series announced this week that Seth Rogen is the latest comic actor to get sucked into the show’s spooooooky vortex, joining folks like Kumail Nanjiani, Alison Tolman, Adam Scott, Jessica Williams, and a whole bunch of other people apparently tailor-made to make you quietly go “Shit, the new Twilight Zone is sounding pretty good.”


The press release announcing Rogen’s arrival in the Zone didn’t state which episode he’ll be appearing in, getting into ironic mishaps and trying to dodge all those goddamn flying eyeballs and creepy doors that are always floating around the place. But a recent tweet from Room actor Jacob Tremblay suggests that the two might be working together; Tremblay is reportedly starring in “The Wunderkind,” which we can only assume is Peele and company’s initial offering in the long tradition of creepy Zone kid episodes.

The Twilight Zone debuts on CBS All Access on April 1.
