Biography

Unlike many of Hollywood's <i>GQ</i>-esque, A-list types, comedy actor-writer Seth Rogen, with curly locks and Yogi Bear physique, was instantly embraced by audiences for his common-man appeal. While paying his initial dues working on a variety of TV sitcoms, he fell under the tutelage of producer-writer-director Judd Apatow. Under Apatow's brilliant guidance, Rogen's wise-beyond-his-years wit and improv skills on "Freaks and Geeks" (NBC, 1999-2000) and his dual role as actor-writer on "Undeclared" (Fox, 2001-02) ultimately led him to shine in two Apatow hit films: first, as hilarious blue-collar sidekick to Steve Carell in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" (2005), followed by the unlikely leading man in "Knocked Up" (2007). Using his considerable clout from these projects, he would co-write and executive produce hit comedies "Superbad" (2007) and "Pineapple Express" (2007) as well as directing and co-writing apocalyptic comedy "This Is The End" (2013) and controversial political comedy "The Interview" (2014) with his longtime creative partner Evan Goldberg. Throughout, Rogen maintained a parallel career as a charming leading man in films like the generation gap comedy "The Guilt Trip" (2012), "Neighbors" (2014), and "The Night Before" (2015). Besides attaining the enviable multi-hyphenate accomplishment of writer-actor-producer, Rogen's brand of self-conscious oaf and coming-of-age "everydude" heralded a new breed of leading men - one which broke away from the chest-thumping, Alpha-male stereotypes popular throughout cinema history.

"I’ve worked with writers and directors before who kind of want you to say exactly what they’ve written, and honestly, in some ways that’s a giant relief from what we normally do! It can be very stressful and exhausting to be expected to come up with new, funny things, take after take. Sometimes it’s nice to just say what’s on the page." - from craveonline.com, Oct. 7, 2015

.

Mother drove him to gigs at Yuk Yuks in Toronto during his teens.
