Seth Rogen

The Canadian-born comedian started his career performing stand-up in Vancouver as a teenager. He then landed a supporting role in the T.V. series Freaks and Geeks, and it was all uphill from there. Judd Apatow put him on the comedic map when he cast Rogen in movies, like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Seth Rogen also co-wrote his own comedies, including Superbad and Pineapple Express.
