Biography

Seth Rogen (born 15.4.1982)
Seth Rogen is a Canadian actor and comedian, best known for his roles in mainstream comedy films such as Knocked Up and Superbad.

Childhood: Seth Rogen was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. His mother, Sandy, is a social worker and his father, Mark, is the assistant director of a Workmen's Circle. Rogen himself has described his parents as 'radical Jewish socialists.' His elder sister Danya is also a social worker.

At the age of 16, Seth Rogen came second in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest before moving south to pursue a career in stand-up and acting.

TV Career: Seth Rogen first worked commercially when he started appearing in commercials at the age of 13. He then landed a role in Freaks and Geeks, playing the role of Ken Miller. He would go on to work extensively with the show's co-producer Judd Apatow.

In 2001, Rogen landed minor roles in Donnie Darko (which starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Dawson's Creek.

In 2005, Rogen won a Primetime Emmy Award, along with Evan Goldberg, for their writing work on Da Ali G Show. It has also been claimed that Rogen contributed to the writing of Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat, though he was not credited for it.

That same year, he also appeared in the hugely successful film The 40-Year Old Virgin. The film was Judd Apatow's directorial debut and starred Steve Carell.

Following the success of the film, Apatow went on to cast Rogen in one of the lead roles of Knocked Up, a comedy based on a one night stand that results in pregnancy.

Superbad was released in 2008. Rogen had originally written the script with himself in mind for the lead role. However, the film's producers wanted a younger version of Rogen and opted for one of Rogen's friends and collaborators, Jonah Hill. Rogen followed the success of Superbad by writing the screenplay for Drillbit Taylor, an Owen Wilson vehicle.

Seth Rogen also co-wrote Pineapple Express with Evan Goldberg.

Rogen went on to appear opposite Elizabeth Banks in Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make A Porno, followed by Observe and Report, a comedy directed by Jody Hill.

Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler will both appear in the Judd Apatow-directed Funny People. The film will also star Eric Bana and Leslie Mann.

Personal Life: Seth Rogen is dating Lauren Miller.

The Disaster Artist Review

Excellent

A hilariously outrageous story based on real events, this film recounts the making of the 2003 movie The Room, which is widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made, even as it has developed a cult following. Based on the book by The Room's star Greg Sestero, it takes a remarkably personal look at the antics of aspiring actor-filmmaker Tommy Wiseau, who is played by James Franco with gonzo charm.

In late-1990s San Francisco, Tommy meets Greg (played by Dave Franco) in an acting class. As they struggle to find work, they make a pact to support each other. After moving to Los Angeles, Tommy decides to fund his own movie from his mysterious fortune, with himself in the lead role opposite Greg. They hire a cast (including Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron and Jacki Weaver) and crew (including Seth Rogen and Paul Scheer) and set out to film Tommy's screenplay for The Room. But everyone has second thoughts, since Tommy has no discernible skill at acting, writing or directing.

The Room is indeed a terrible film, but it's remarkable simply for the fact that Wiseau managed to make it. And by accepting that the public saw his melodramatic romance as an awkward comedy, he has actually made money from it. The irony about this story is of course that the profoundly untalented Wiseau had enough cash to finance the project himself. Franco plays him with affection: he's a jerk to everyone, and refuses to admit his age, nationality or where he got his millions, but he's tenacious and loyal. It's a terrific performance that never winks at the camera. And the Franco brothers bring superb camaraderie to the screen in what becomes a surprisingly involving bromance.

Seth Rogen's Mom Tweets Him When He Ignores Her Calls


Seth Rogen

There is something uniquely funny about watching a celebrity getting berated by their mother for not calling them - and when it's Seth Rogen it's all the more amusing. The comedian avoided his mother's calls for a full day, so she took to social media to get hold of him.

Never ignore your mom's calls, because she'll find a way of contacting you and all your friends and fans will join in making sure you pick up your damn phone. The 35-year-old actor re-Tweeted Sandy Rogen's message to him when he wouldn't answer his phone and the comments are hilarious.

The Disaster Artist Trailer


Tommu Wiseau is an ever secretive and Louisiana-born filmmaker who directed, wrote and starred in the 2003 romantic drama 'The Room' with Greg Sestero. It's a movie that has become a cult hit among film-lovers for all the wrong reasons, as it's considered to be one of the worst films ever made. 

It follows the love triangle between banker named Johnny (Tommy's character), his lying wife Lisa ( protrayed by Juliette Danielle) and his best friend Mark (who is played by Greg Sestero). Amongst the random subplots that seemingly have no relation to the plot itself, we see Johnny struggling to quash Lisa's stories that she is the victim of domestic abuse.

James Franco stars as the filmmaker while his brother Dave Franco plays Greg Sestero in 'The Disaster Artist'; a comedic retelling of Sestero's 2013 memoir and a look at the making of this iconic flick. Amusingly Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero also star in this new movie - though they portray characters Henry and the casting agent respectively. Plus, Sestero previously claimed that Wiseau would only agree to this adaptation if he would be played by either James Franco or Johnny Depp.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising [Bad Neighbours 2] Review

Good

While it's amusing and sometimes very funny, there's an air of desperation about this sequel to the 2014 breakout hit comedy. The main problem is that, instead of pushing the characters forward in any way, the plot is basically a rehash of the exact same series of events. So the cast and crew rush through it in the hopes that audiences might not notice, throwing in issues like girl power and gay marriage to make it look like they noticed the criticisms of the first movie.

It's been a year or so, and now Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are selling their house to move to the suburbs before the birth their second child. But just as the sale is agreed, a sorority moves in next door, founded by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) in defiance of the usual frat-house rules. They get help from former fraternity leader Teddy (Zac Efron), who's aimless because his best pal Pete (Dave Franco) has just agreed to marry his boyfriend. So Mac and Kelly are worried that the loud parties are going to jeopardise the sale, and when talking with Shelby fails, the stand-off escalates into all-out war. And when the girls turn on him, Teddy swaps sides to help take them down.

The dialogue is packed with hilariously wrong humour, mainly adult gags that are spoken around very young children. The idea of a little girl who chooses a pink dildo as her favourite toy is good for one laugh, but perhaps not the next 10 the filmmakers try to wring from it. Meanwhile, there's a strange exhaustion in the air, as both Teddy and Mac seem tired of all of this nonsense. Efron and Rogen play the roles with impeccable timing, but both seem aware that they've already pushed these characters as far as they possibly can. Byrne has a lot more spark, and provides most of the best laughs. And Moretz shows some skill at spiky silliness.

Steve Jobs Review

Extraordinary

Sidestepping arguments about accuracy, writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle take an artistic, impressionistic approach to this biopic about the iconic Apple founder. Using a structure that would work perfectly on stage, the film tells his story through just three extended scenes. In the process, it reveals even more about human nature than it does about Steve Jobs or the tech business.

The first segment is set in 1984, as Steve (Michael Fassbender) is about to launch the game-changing Macintosh computer with cofounder Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen), marketing expert Joanna Hoffman (Kate Winslet) and developer Andy Hertsfeld (Michael Stuhlbarg). As he organises the launch event to within an inch of its life, he's interrupted by his ex-girlfriend Chrisann (Katherine Waterston), but Steve still refuses to accept that her 5-year-old daughter is his. He also has an important conversation with the Apple chairman John Sculley (Jeff Daniels) just before going on-stage. This same scenario is repeated two more times, at the 1988 launch of NeXT and at the 1998 launch of the iMac, tracing Steve's fierce business acumen, complex interaction with his colleagues, and his evolving connection with his daughter.

Fassbender bravely never hedges his bets as Jobs, finding a tricky balance in an innovator who changed the world but never quite made sense of his personal or professional relationships. This is a man who is likeable and cruel at the same time, eliciting both laughter and gasps of horror from the audience. Fassbender's kinetic energy is hugely engaging, matched cleverly by Winslet's Hoffman, the only person with whom Jobs speaks about his own flaws. With both Rogen's generous Wozniak and Stuhlbarg's determined Hertzfeld, Jobs is much more dismissive, although there's respect under the surface. And its the literate banter with Daniels' thoughtful Sculley that gives the film its brainy kick, especially as it's so inventively written and directed to weave conversations right into flashbacks.

Steve Jobs Trailer


Steve Jobs is widely regarded as a pioneer in the age of technology, making the computer accessible to all with his billionaire organisation Apple Inc. Though as much as he was a genius, he made a lot of enemies on his way to fame, fortune and recognition while relying on his skilled best friend Steve Wozniak. He refused to co-operate with much of the staff at Apple including CEO John Sculley, and henceforth detached himself from the company, but meanwhile his personal life was no more amicable. Refusing to be a father to his college girlfriend Chrisann Brennan's daughter Lisa and denying all paternity shone a bad light on him in the eyes of his family, his colleagues and the public especially when paternity was proven. But upon his return to Apple came a new man, humbled by his previous behaviour and willing to be both a father and a fair businessman. But of all the sacrifices he made to make Apple great, his health suffered most of all.
