Seth Rogen stars in the dramatic comedy "50/50" with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anna Kendrick.

Rogen is currently working on the script for the Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn comedy "Neighborhood Watch" and will next be seen in the comedy "My Mother's Curse," opposite Academy Award winner Barbra Streisand. Also in the works for the versatile actor is another dramatic turn in the recently acquired Magnolia Pictures film "Take This Waltz," starring Sarah Silverman and Michelle Williams and directed by Sarah Polley.
 
Seth Rogen is one of the leading voices in the new generation of comedic actors, writers and producers. Nominated for an Emmy Award in 2005 for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy for "Da Ali G Show," Rogen began his career doing standup comedy in Vancouver, Canada at 13 years of age. 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 of which also hired Rogen as a staff writer at the age of 18. Shortly after, Rogen was guided by Apatow towards a film career. 
 
In 2005, Rogen was cast by Apatow in the hit feature comedy "The 40 Year Old Virgin," which opened #1 at the box office where it remained at the top perch for two weekends in a row. The film went on to gross over $175 million worldwide and helped put Rogen on the map as a future film star. The film was named one of 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year by AFI and took home Best Comedy Movie at the 11th annual Critics' Choice Awards. Rogen was a co-producer on the film as well.  
 
In 2007, Rogen toplined the summer comedy "Knocked Up," co-starring Katherine Heigl, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, a film that has grossed over $140 million dollars domestically. Just a few months later that same summer, Rogen appeared in "Superbad," a semi-autobiographical comedy that he co-wrote and executive produced with writing partner Evan Goldberg; that film grossed over $120 million dollars domestically for Sony Pictures. 
 
2008 was another busy year for Rogen. After lending his voice to "Kung Fu Panda," he starred in "Pineapple Express"; a film he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg. The film also stars James Franco and Danny McBride. Sony Pictures released "Pineapple Express" in August and it went on to earn nearly over $100 million worldwide. Rogen was next seen starring opposite Elizabeth Banks in the Kevin Smith "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," released by Weinstein Company.

Rogen continued to demonstrate his wide-ranging ability as he co-wrote, executive produced and starred as the main character, Britt Reid, in the comic book-turned action film, "The Green Hornet." In addition to his on-screen roles, he has also found great success lending his voice for animated films, which include the title character in Greg Mottola's comedy "Paul," the character Mantis in "Kung Fu Panda 2," and the voice of B.O.B. in the 3D animation phenomenon "Monsters vs. Aliens."

Other film credits include Judd Apatow's "Funny People," opposite Adam Sandler, Eric Bana and Leslie Mann; the dark comedy "Observe and Report" with Anna Faris and Ray Liotta; "Horton Hears a Who!" and "Drillbit Taylor."

He currently resides in Los Angeles.
