Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up for the intergalactic adventure "Paul." The actors play English comic book nerds who experience a close encounter with the third kind when they meet Paul, the resident alien of Area 51 who wants to go back home.
In this interview we talked about what attracted them to making the movie, and how they approached Seth Rogen, the voice of Paul, to work on the film. Rogen is the heart of the movie and may have given the best performance of his career!

Here's more info on "Paul" from Yahoo:
For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town -- a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings. Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
