Chances are, you’ve mentally assigned each and every one of your friends the situations in which they prove of most utility. You’ve got your friends who are best at parties. Your friends who are best to go to the movies with. Your friends who’ll pick you up at the airport (and won’t be late!). You’ve got one for everything. But have you got any apocalypse friends? That’s where it gets a little trickier. See, it takes a very special kind of person to prove useful in the face of the world’s end. But the eclectic wonderland that Hollywood is has its own share of Armageddon-ready characters, both fictional and of our strange, magical planet.
This Is the End throws a whole bunch of celebrities into the mix for a bona fide Armageddon: Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson lead the journey (with a slew of others showing up throughout). But there are plenty of worthwhile candidates for an apocalyptic team that the film missed. Check out our Friends for the End gallery, and compile your own troupe for when the day finally hits.
