NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING

SETH ROGEN, p.g.a. (Mac Radner/Written by/Produced by) 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 lifelong 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, Point Grey's first television show Preacher, based on the popular graphic novel series by Garth Ennis, will premiere on AMC on May 22. Rogen and Goldberg directed the pilot and the second episode. In August, Sausage Party, Rogen and Point Grey's first foray into producing and writing animation, will be released.

In 2014, Rogen co-directed, produced and starred in the controversial, almost never-seen, action-comedy The Interview. Released Christmas Eve in theaters and online simultaneously, The Interview earned more than $40 million in digital sales, making it Sony Pictures' top-grossing film online. That same year, he was seen in the hugely successful summer comedy Neighbors.

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. 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 action-comedy Pineapple Express.

Rogen currently resides in Los Angeles.
