 Seth Rogen: Life and Career

Actor Seth Rogen, born upon April 15, 1982, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, increased to fame in his twenties as one of the funny icons of his generation. His functions in tv collection and movies directed by Judd Apatow, consisting of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, made him a house name and brought him nonstop work as a star and producer for various other comedies and animated films.

His mom and dad, Sandy (Belogus) and Mark Rogen, worked for nonprofit organizations; he has one older sister, Dayna. Rogen began executing stand-up comedy as a teenager, crafting his regimens at celebrations and clubs. He succeeded the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest when he was 16 years old.

Rogen left senior high school when a casting call landed him a part in supervisor Judd Apatow's brand-new prime-time comedy-drama Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000). He played Ken, a burnout with a deadpan sense of humor, in a set of young stars simply beginning their careers. Freaks and Geeks soon became a cult classic, although it was canceled after simply one period due to low ratings. Rogen joined Apatow's next television venture, a comedy about university pupils called Undeclared (2001-02), as a star and author; again, the project was closed down after less than a year.

Although Rogen remained to compose for television and movie, and received small duties in 2001's Donnie Darko and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in 2004, it was an additional Judd Apatow enterprise that gave him a job breakthrough. In 2005 he played among Steve Carell's co-workers in the raunchy-but-sweet funny The 40-Year-Old Virgin, a hit with audiences and critics. His exposure enhanced greatly when he took the lead part in Apatow's Knocked Up (2007), acting opposite Katherine Heigl in an unconventional romantic comedy about a one-night-stand that results in an unexpected pregnancy. 2 years later on, he was included in Apatow's darker comedy-drama Funny People, which starred Adam Sandler as a comedian and cancer sufferer.

Various other Film Projects

In addition to his acting ability, Rogen's writing and producing skills were obvious in Superbad, a 2007 film that he developed from a script he had actually co-written with his friend Evan Goldberg at the age of 13. He and Goldberg went on to co-write the action-comedy Pineapple Express, through which Rogen, playing a crime witness, teamed up with fellow Freaks and Geeks alumnus James Franco as his drug dealership (2008).

Rogen's continuous presence on movie displays continued with his work in Kevin Smith's Zach and Miri Make a Porno in 2008, the criminal offense spoof Observe and Report in 2009, and the charming funny Take This Waltz in 2011. He starred as the titular superhero of the comic-book-based motion picture The Green Hornet (2011) and was the sidekick to a young cancer cells patient played by Joseph Gordon Levitt in 2011's 50/50.

Rogen has actually also provided his deep, scratchy voice to numerous animated features, including Dr.

Seuss's Horton Hears a Who!, Kung Fu Panda (and its sequel), Paul and Shrek the Third.

For The Guilt Trip, Rogen teamed up with fabulous singer-actress Barbra Streisand in a mother-and-son road-trip motion picture (2012). In 2013's The End of the World, Rogen reunites with fellow stars (and buddies) Jonah Hill, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and others-- all playing themselves-- in an apocalyptic action-comedy movie.

Personal Life

Rogen married writer/actress Lauren Miller in 2011. He lives in Los Angeles.
