Seth Rogen bio
The brilliant actor was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to his father Mark who is an actor as well and his mother Sandy who works as a social worker.

Growing up, he attended Vancouver Talmud Torah Elementary School and later he studied at the Point Grey Secondary School for his high school education. All through his childhood, the future actor knew that he wanted to be a comedian and thus he began doing stand up comedy during his teens.

From here on, he has gone on to act, write and produce more amazing movies such as Sausage Party, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, Superbad, Kung Fu Panda among many others. He has also gone on to voice animated characters in animations such as Horton Hears a Who! American Dad as well as The Simpsons.
