DR. SEUSS' HORTON HEARS A WHO!
SETH ROGEN (Morton), an actor, writer and producer, had a starring role
opposite Katherine Heigl in “Knocked Up,” which grossed nearly $150 million at the
domestic box office. He co-wrote, executive produced and appeared in the critically
acclaimed teen hit “Superbad,” a semi-autobiographical comedy that earned close to $120
Earlier this year, Rogen was the Narrator in the fantasy-adventure “The
Spiderwick Chronicles.” Rogen also co-wrote the screenplay for another Apatowproduced
comedy, “Drillbit Taylor,” starring Owen Wilson.
Rogen began his career at the tender age of thirteen, performing standup comedy
in Vancouver. After moving to Los Angeles, he landed supporting roles in Judd
Apatow’s critically acclaimed network television comedies, “Freaks and Geeks” and
“Undeclared,” launching Rogen’s reputation for portraying losers, slackers and otherwise
average Joes. At eighteen, proving his chops behind the camera, Rogen was hired as a
staff writer on “Undeclared.”
In 2005, Apatow cast Rogen in the hit feature comedy “The 40 Year Old Virgin,”
which opened theatrically at #1 and went on to gross $165 million worldwide. Coproduced
by Rogen, the film was named one of Ten Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of
the Year by AFI and won Best Comedy Movie at the Critics’ Choice Awards. The same
year he was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music
or Comedy on HBO’s “Da Ali G Show.”
The 26-year-old Canadian continues to verify his place among a new generation
of triple-threat comedic writer/producer/actors. His upcoming films include the action
comedy “Pineapple Express” and the animated “Kung Fu Panda.” Rogen and writing
partner Evan Goldberg are penning “The Green Hornet,” a project he’s slated to star in
and executive produce.
