Wiki: Seth Rogen (born April 15, 1982) is a Canadian actor, comedian, writer and film producer.
He began his career doing standup comedy for four years during his teens, coming in second place in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest when he was 16. After moving to Los Angeles, he landed supporting roles in the short-lived television series Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared (the latter of which also hired him as a staff writer).
After landing a job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, for which he and the other writers received an Emmy nomination, he was guided by director Judd Apatow toward a film career. He was cast in a major supporting role and credited as a co-producer in Apatow’s directorial debut, The 40-Year-Old Virgin. After receiving critical praise for that performance, Universal Pictures agreed to cast him as the lead in Apatow’s next directorial feature, Knocked Up.
He has also appeared in the films Donnie Darko, You, Me and Dupree and Fanboys, in addition to the Apatow-produced comedies Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Superbad (a semi-autobiographical comedy he originally intended to headline years ago, co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg). He also wrote the screenplay for another comedy that Apatow helped co-produce, Owen Wilson's Drillbit Taylor.
