After starting out as a stand-up artist during his teenage years, Seth Rogen is now one of the most recognisable people in comedy.
Born on 15 April 1982, he was so invested in comedy that he co-wrote the script for Superbad when he was a teen. The movie would go on to become an undisputed hit.
His work as a voice-artist is equally commendable and he has voiced characters on Horton Hears A Who!, The Simpsons, and Kung Fu Panda. His other movies like Pineapple Express and Knocked Up have also been incredible successes, but there are some projects of his that may have escaped your radar, but, nonetheless, you need to watch.
1. Freaks & Geeks
This short-lived teen TV series aired only for one season, but it has a cult following that exists till today. The show revolved around an extremely smart high school student who befriended a gang of ‘freaks’ (of which Rogen was a part).
50/50 is a comedy inspired by true events. It focuses on a young man (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who gets diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer, and his subsequent fight to beat it. Seth plays the role of his best friend, who stands by him throughout.
Another short-lived TV show created by Judd Apatow, Undeclared centred on a college freshman (played by Jay Baruchel) and his fellow dorm mates and their misadventures. Seth starred in this as Baruchel’s happy-go-lucky roommate.
4. This Is The End
Rogen’s directorial debut saw him make a movie that starred James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Jay Baruchel as real life actors playing fictionalised versions of themselves in the aftermath of a biblical apocalypse.
While Rogen doesn’t star in this, he did help develop it and acts as an executive producer. The show is an adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comic book series Preacher.
