GREEN HORNET

SETH ROGEN (Britt Reid/Screenwriter/Executive Producer) was seen in Judd Apatow's Funny People alongside Adam Sandler, Eric Bana and Leslie Mann. He also recently starred in the dark comedy Observe and Report with Anna Faris and Ray Liotta; and was heard in the 3D animated film Monsters vs. Aliens as B.O.B.

Rogen has emerged leading a new generation of comedic actors, writers and producers, having began his career doing standup comedy in Vancouver, Canada at 13 years of age. After moving to Los Angeles, Rogen landed supporting roles in Judd Apatow's two critically acclaimed network television comedies, Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, the latter of which Rogen was also hired as a staff writer at the age of 18. Shortly after, Rogen was guided by Apatow toward a film career.

In 2005, Rogen was cast by Apatow in the hit feature comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which opened #1 at the box office where it remained at the top perch for two weekends in a row. The film went on to gross over $175 million worldwide and helped put Rogen on the map as a future film star. The film was named one of 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year by AFI and took home Best Comedy Movie at the 11th annual Critics' Choice Awards. Rogen was a co-producer on the film as well.

In 2007, Rogen toplined the summer comedy Knocked Up, co-starring Katherine Heigl, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, a film that has grossed over $140 million dollars domestically. Just a few months later that same summer, Rogen appeared in Superbad, a semi-autobiographical comedy that he co-wrote and executive produced with writing partner Evan Goldberg; that film grossed over $120 million dollars domestically for Sony Pictures.

2008 was another busy year for Rogen. He started by lending his voice as Mantis alongside Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman and Angelina Jolie in the Academy Award® nominated Kung Fu Panda, which earned more than $626 million worldwide. Rogen immediately followed Kung Fu Panda with another #1 box office hit in the action comedy Pineapple Express; a film he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg and starred opposite of James Franco and Danny McBride. Sony Pictures released the film in August and it went on to earn nearly over $100 million worldwide. Rogen was next seen starring opposite Elizabeth Banks in the Kevin Smith Zack and Miri Make a Porno, released by Weinstein Company.

Other film credits for Rogen include Horton Hears a Who and Drillbit Taylor.

Rogen recently wrapped production on Untitled Seth Rogen project, a film he also wrote with and is producing with Evan Goldberg.

Rogen currently resides in Los Angeles.
