Biography

Seth Rogen (born 15.4.1982)
Seth Rogen is a Canadian actor and comedian, best known for his roles in mainstream comedy films such as Knocked Up and Superbad.

Childhood: Seth Rogen was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. His mother, Sandy, is a social worker and his father, Mark, is the assistant director of a Workmen's Circle. Rogen himself has described his parents as 'radical Jewish socialists.' His elder sister Danya is also a social worker.

At the age of 16, Seth Rogen came second in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest before moving south to pursue a career in stand-up and acting.

TV Career: Seth Rogen first worked commercially when he started appearing in commercials at the age of 13. He then landed a role in Freaks and Geeks, playing the role of Ken Miller. He would go on to work extensively with the show's co-producer Judd Apatow.

In 2001, Rogen landed minor roles in Donnie Darko (which starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Dawson's Creek.

In 2005, Rogen won a Primetime Emmy Award, along with Evan Goldberg, for their writing work on Da Ali G Show. It has also been claimed that Rogen contributed to the writing of Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat, though he was not credited for it.

That same year, he also appeared in the hugely successful film The 40-Year Old Virgin. The film was Judd Apatow's directorial debut and starred Steve Carell.

Following the success of the film, Apatow went on to cast Rogen in one of the lead roles of Knocked Up, a comedy based on a one night stand that results in pregnancy.

Superbad was released in 2008. Rogen had originally written the script with himself in mind for the lead role. However, the film's producers wanted a younger version of Rogen and opted for one of Rogen's friends and collaborators, Jonah Hill. Rogen followed the success of Superbad by writing the screenplay for Drillbit Taylor, an Owen Wilson vehicle.

Seth Rogen also co-wrote Pineapple Express with Evan Goldberg.

Rogen went on to appear opposite Elizabeth Banks in Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make A Porno, followed by Observe and Report, a comedy directed by Jody Hill.

Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler will both appear in the Judd Apatow-directed Funny People. The film will also star Eric Bana and Leslie Mann.

Personal Life: Seth Rogen is dating Lauren Miller.

Michelle Rodriguez Compares Gender Wage Gap To Slavery


Michelle Rodriguez Seth Rogen

The Furious 7 star made her feelings clear when she was asked about Seth Rogen's recent comments, in which he jokingly suggesting he is responsible for the gender wage discussion because details about leading actress' earnings were exposed in the 2014 Sony Pictures hacking scandal, which came after the release of his controversial movie The Interview.

Michelle fully agrees women are paid less than their male counterparts, but she explains she doesn't "complain" about it because there's little she can do.

"That's the world we live in," she tells TMZ.com. "It's a patriarchal society."

Zac Efron: 'Mum Told Me Off For Flashing Fake Testicles'


Zac Efron Seth Rogen Rose Byrne Chloe Moretz

The 28-year-old star reprises his role of student Teddy Sanders, who wreaked havoc on Mr and Mrs Radner's (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) lives in the first film but is now their ally, helping them battle it out against a hard-partying sorority group next door, led by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz).

There were some especially humorous moments on set, such as one scene in which Teddy shows off his private parts. Zac's mother happened to stop by around the same time, making the filming awkward as well as hilarious.

"Those were not real testicles," Seth assured Us Weekly.

Zac Efron Seth Rogen

Zac was slated to appear alongside his co-stars on the red carpet for the film's Hollywood premiere on Monday (16May16), but at the last minute the heartthrob had to pull out because he was still shooting Baywatch scenes in Atlanta, Georgia.

Just hours before the premiere, Zac took to Instagram to share the sad news with his fans, posting a photo of himself trapped in a cage near water, adding the caption, "So bummed to miss the #Neighbors2 premiere with you guys - so proud of this one - believe me I tried - so badly they had to put me in a cage - but love and miss you all - break a leg and have fun."

One person who had no idea Zac wouldn't be at the premiere was Rose Byrne, who plays Seth's wife in the comedy.

Seth Rogen's Wife Pens Essay On Controversial Reagan Comedy


Seth Rogen Lauren Miller Will Ferrell Ronald Reagan

Last month (Apr16), the Anchorman star pulled out of a film titled Reagan, in which he was poised to portray the ailing politician. The quirky film followed an intern who is given the task of convincing Reagan he is an actor portraying the commander-in-chief in a movie.

The film was met with mixed reactions, with Reagan's daughter, Patti Davis, making it clear she's not a fan of the film - or Ferrell's casting - in a passionate open letter to the actor on her blog, insisting her father's struggle with the disease was no laughing matter.

And Seth's wife Lauren also decided to pen an emotional essay with her own thoughts on the subject, since the actress' mother suffers from the degenerative disease. In addition, she and Seth are founders of the Hilarity For Charity organisation, which aims to raise awareness for Alzheimer's.

Zac Efron And Seth Rogen Were Happy To Take On Neighbors 2


Zac Efron Seth Rogen

But Rogen, who also produced both films and cowrote the sequel, wanted to make sure the moment was right. "A few things made us want to do a sequel," he explains. "We thought that the theme of growing up had an organic place it could go. And that the characters were interesting enough that maybe you would like to see what happened next in their lives. And that could be relatable as well."

Neighbors 2 reunites Efron and Rogen

For Efron, returning to the role was a no-brainer. "I was excited about the potential for a sequel because I just really love this group of people," he says. "So I just felt that there was more to do with this group. And rather than just like write a whole new movie that we'd all magically fit into, it was convenient that they came up with a sequel! So I was really happy."

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising [Bad Neighbours 2] Review

Good

While it's amusing and sometimes very funny, there's an air of desperation about this sequel to the 2014 breakout hit comedy. The main problem is that, instead of pushing the characters forward in any way, the plot is basically a rehash of the exact same series of events. So the cast and crew rush through it in the hopes that audiences might not notice, throwing in issues like girl power and gay marriage to make it look like they noticed the criticisms of the first movie.

It's been a year or so, and now Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are selling their house to move to the suburbs before the birth their second child. But just as the sale is agreed, a sorority moves in next door, founded by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) in defiance of the usual frat-house rules. They get help from former fraternity leader Teddy (Zac Efron), who's aimless because his best pal Pete (Dave Franco) has just agreed to marry his boyfriend. So Mac and Kelly are worried that the loud parties are going to jeopardise the sale, and when talking with Shelby fails, the stand-off escalates into all-out war. And when the girls turn on him, Teddy swaps sides to help take them down.

The dialogue is packed with hilariously wrong humour, mainly adult gags that are spoken around very young children. The idea of a little girl who chooses a pink dildo as her favourite toy is good for one laugh, but perhaps not the next 10 the filmmakers try to wring from it. Meanwhile, there's a strange exhaustion in the air, as both Teddy and Mac seem tired of all of this nonsense. Efron and Rogen play the roles with impeccable timing, but both seem aware that they've already pushed these characters as far as they possibly can. Byrne has a lot more spark, and provides most of the best laughs. And Moretz shows some skill at spiky silliness.

Chloe Grace Moretz And Seth Rogen Trade Insults


Chloe Moretz Seth Rogen

The co-stars appeared on Scott Mills’ BBC Radio 1 show on Wednesday (04May16) to play a game of Playground Insults. The game involves trading mean comments, with the first one to laugh the loser.

Chloe kicked things off by telling Seth he needs a manicure, before he replied: "You steal those boots from Marilyn Manson?"

The actress then responded that Seth was "trying to be Harry Potter" with his glasses, with the actor replying: "I just can't see you anymore".

Seth Rogen Feared He Was Going To Die Over The Interview


Seth Rogen James Franco

Hacker group Guardians of Peace infiltrated the databases of Sony Pictures Entertainment and leaked confidential material in an effort to get Seth's political comedy, which features two American journalists hired to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, pulled from release in 2014.

The premiere and wide cinema release were eventually cancelled after the group threatened to attack them, and Seth was given security out of fears he would be targeted over the controversy. But the 34-year-old admits he remained scared when the guards were let go after the uproar died down.

“It was a horrible experience," he told U.K. TV host Graham Norton. "It was bizarre to have personal security. And on the day my bodyguard disappeared, I thought, ‘This is it, this is when I die,’ but actually it turned out that the studio just didn’t want to pay for it anymore! It was a very weird experience.”

Rose Byrne: 'Guys Still Get Better Roles'


Rose Byrne Seth Rogen Zac Efron Bobby Cannavale Russell Brand

The Australian funnywoman, 36, started her career as a serious actress, but when Hollywood started placing her in films like Bridesmaids and I Give It a Year, Rose carved a name for herself in comedy.

She’ll soon be back as Kelly Radner in Bad Neighbours 2, reuniting with Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and director Nicholas Stoller.

“Seth and Nick are really championing getting rid of those stereotypes,” Rose told New York Magazine of the roles on offer for women. “Most things I read, I still would much rather play the guy. There have been some changes, but I wish there was more.”

Emma Stone To Star In New Female-driven Comedy


Emma Stone Seth Rogen Kate McKinnon Jillian Bell

After a heated bidding war involving multiple studios, The Hollywood Reporter claims that Fox has nabbed a comedy script by Laura Steinel for the film, with Emma tipped to star alongside Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell. The movie also has Jake Szymanski, who directed Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, attached to helm.

In addition to the strong cast, the narrative apparently focuses on cutthroat career women going to great and perhaps comedic lengths, to succeed professionally rather than romantically.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film centres "on two competitive women who are sent on a business trip to Canada. There, they hire a third woman off Craigslist to act as their intern, which derails their trip."
