Actor, writer and producer SETH ROGEN (Mantis) has a number of reasons to smile, given the domestic gross of two summer hit movies in which he appears. The actor, writer and producer is not only recognizable, but indisputably bankable, thanks to his starring role opposite Katherine Heigl in "Knocked Up,” which grossed nearly $150 million at the U.S. box office, as well as the critically acclaimed teen hit ”Superbad,” a semi-autobiographical comedy he co-wrote, executive-produced and appeared in, which earned close to $120 million.

Rogen began his career doing stand-up comedy in Vancouver at the tender age of 13. After moving to Los Angeles, he landed supporting roles in Judd Apatow's two critically acclaimed network television comedies "Freaks and Geeks” and "Undeclared,” launching his reputation for portraying losers, slackers and otherwise Average Joes. At 18, proving his chops behind the camera, Rogen was additionally 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. Co-produced by Rogen, the film was named one of 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year by AFI and 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 25-year-old Canadian continues to solidify his place among a new generation of triple-threat comedic writer/producer/actors. While recently beginning production on the Kevin Smith comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” he has several other projects in the pipeline, including the action/comedy "Pineapple Express” and two recent releases: the classic Dr. Seuss tale "Horton Hears a Who!” and the Paramount fantasy/adventure "The Spiderwick Chronicles.” Rogen also co-wrote the screenplay for another Apatow-produced comedy, "Drillbit Taylor,” released earlier this year and, with writing partner Evan Goldberg, is penning "The Green Hornet,” a project he's slated to star in and executive produce.
