SETH ROGEN (Steve "Woz" Wozniak) has emerged as a prominent
figure in a
new generation of multi-hyphenates, as an actor, writer, producer and director
with the ability to generate his own material. In 2011, Rogen, along with
friend and writing partner, Evan Goldberg, founded Point Grey Pictures,
the production company behind such movies as The Interview, Neighbors,
This Is the End and 50/50.
Next up, Rogen is producing and starring in Sony Pictures' The Night Before,
a comedy about three best friends who set out to find the Holy Grail of
Christmas parties because their yearly reunion might be coming to an end.
The film is slated for release on November 25. In May 2016, Rogen will appear
in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the sequel to the hugely successful 2014
summer comedy Neighbors.
Recently, Rogen co-directed, produced and starred in the controversial,
never-seen, action-comedy The Interview. Released Christmas Day in theatres
and online simultaneously, The Interview earned more than $40 million in digital
sales, making it Sony Pictures' top-grossing film online.
In 2013, Rogen made his co-directorial debut with Goldberg in Sony Pictures'
apocalyptic comedy, This Is the End.
In 2011, Rogen executive produced and co-starred in the dramatic comedy
50/50, inspired by the real-life experiences of his best friend. Rogen continued
to demonstrate his wide-ranging ability as he co-wrote, executive produced and
starred as the main character, Britt Reid, in the action film The Green Hornet.
That same year, Rogen lent his voice to the Academy Award-nominated film
Kung Fu Panda, and later reprised his role as the sarcastic Mantis in the film's
sequel, Kung Fu Panda 2.
Nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2005 for Outstanding Writing for
a Variety, Music or Comedy Program for Da Ali G Show, Rogen began his
career doing stand-up in Vancouver, Canada, at the age of 13. 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, first with
the 2005 The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
In 2007, Rogen headlined two summer blockbusters: Knocked Up and
Superbad, the latter of which he also co-wrote. In 2008, Rogen found
success in the action-comedy Pineapple Express.
Rogen currently resides in Los Angeles.
