People are very strange these days! Oh, hi Betty.
The scene in which a star-struck Tommy approaches Judd Apatow in a restaurant takes place in 2002, when it is highly unlikely that Tommy would have recognized him. Apatow had produced the shows Freaks & Geeks (2000) and Undeclared (2001), but did not achieve celebrity status until he directed The 40 Year-Old Virgin (2005) and Knocked Up (2007). However, as Apatow is never identified by name, it could be argued he's playing a fictional producer and not himself, especially as he's much nastier than the real Apatow.
While Corona's song "Rhythm Of The Night" plays over the credits, you can hear Tommy(Franco) singing along to the song.
