Biography


Born on April 15, 1982 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Seth Rogen started off his career during his teenage years performing stand-up comedy at parties and clubs. By 16 years old he won the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest. He later decided to leave high school after landing a part on prime-time comedy-drama "Freaks and Geeks" which was canceled after only one season due to low ratings. His next TV venture "Undeclared", for which she served as an actor and writer, sad to say was also shut down after less than a year.

Rogen continued working behind the camera afterwards while at the same time also scored small parts in some features, like "Donnie Darko" (2001) and "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004). In 2005 he embraced his biggest career breakthrough with a major supporting role in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" which received positive reviews from both audience and film critics. As his popularity grew, he received more film offers and next starred in "You, Me and Dupree" (2006), "Knocked Up" (2007), "Funny People" (2009), "The Green Hornet" (2011), "50/50" (2011) and "Neighbors" (2014).
