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,

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.
In 2008, Rogen lent his voice to the Academy Award-nominated film Kung Fu Panda
and in 2011, he 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 for
which Rogen was also hired as a staff writer at the age of 18. Shortly
thereafter, 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
