ALSO! Click here to read our interview with Seth Rogen.
A flare for stand-up comedy came at an early age for the Vancouver-born Seth Rogen – as early as the age of 13. Moving to Los Angeles a few years later, Rogen came under the wing of Judd Apatow and has been a disciple ever since. Now, Seth is a fledgling member of the Frat Pack, acting as well as writing and producing. Sweet-natured raunchy comedies that turn out to be huge hits are a Seth Rogen staple – as “Knocked Up” has shown. He has the charm that audiences like, and a growing audience waiting for more.
Apatow brought Seth on to his two short-lived television series “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared” to prep Seth for the big time. Soon enough, Seth showed up in “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," a major role in “The 40 Year Old Virgin,” which he co-produced, and “You, Me, and Dupree." His status reached new heights as the slacker Ben Stone in “Knocked Up.” He was a staff writer for “Da Ali G Show” and is the co-writer and executive producer of “Superbad." His comedic persona is taking Hollywood by storm, and a whole new slew of comedies are headed our way. The more clout Seth gains, the further he promises to push the envelope.

In addition to the Judd Apatow comedies of “Anchorman,” “The 40 Year Old Virgin,” “Knocked Up,” “Superbad,” the television series “Undeclared” and “Freaks and Geeks,” Seth can also be seen in “Donnie Darko,” “You, Me, and Dupree,” and the Kevin Smith comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."
Seth can currently be seen in the new dramedy "50/50" alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anna Kendrick, and also appears in Sarah Polley's latest film, "Take This Waltz," which recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Up next for the actor is the action/comedy "Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse," the ensemble comedy "For a Good Time, Call..." and "My Mother's Curse."
On Judd Apatow:
“He’s the reason I’m not a homeless crackhead right now.”
On the ratings system:
“You can blow up people and still get a PG-13 tag, but the ratings board moves faster than a speeding bullet to slap an R on my movie as soon as sex enters the picture.”
