Name: Seth Rogen                                                                     
Born: 15 April 1982 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada                               
Seth Rogen (born April 15, 1982) is a Canadian actor, comedian and writer.           
Rogen began his career doing standup comedy for four years during his teens,         
coming in second place in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest when he was           
sixteen. After moving to Los Angeles, Rogen landed supporting roles in Freaks         
and Geeks and Undeclared (the latter of which also hired Rogen as a staff writer).   
After landing a job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, for       
which he and the other writers received an Emmy nomination, Rogen was guided by       
director Judd Apatow toward a film career. Rogen was cast in a major supporting       
role, and credited as a co-producer, in Apatow's directorial debut The 40-Year-Old   
Virgin. After receiving critical praise for that performance, Universal Pictures     
agreed to cast Rogen as the lead in Apatow's next directorial feature, Knocked       
Rogen has appeared in the films Donnie Darko, You, Me, and Dupree and Fanboys,       
in addition to the Apatow-produced comedies Anchorman: The Legend of Ron             
Burgundy and Superbad (a semi-autobiographical comedy Rogen originally intended       
to headline years ago, co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg). Rogen also wrote       
the screenplay for another comedy which Apatow helped co-produce, Owen Wilson's       
Drillbit Taylor.
