The brilliant Seth Rogen returns to cinemas on May 6 in Bad Neighbours 2, the sequel to his 2014 comedy hit Bad Neighbours. To celebrate, here’s our ranking of his career highlights to date.
7. The Night Before (2015)
Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Avengers’ Anthony Mackie star as three childhood friends who meet up again every Christmas Eve in this warm and funny festive film.
6. Pineapple Express (2008)
This stoner comedy which reunites Rogen with his old Freaks And Geeks co-star James Franco has rightly gone on to become a cult classic.
5. Funny People (2009)
Rogen bounces off Adam Sandler nicely in this surprisingly nuanced movie about stand-up comics, one of Rogen’s many collaborations with writer-director Judd Apatow.
4. The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)
Steve Carell stars as the sex-starved title character, but Rogen is equally memorable as Cal, the friend who tries to teach him how to talk to women.
3. Bad Neighbours (2014)
In this awesomely raucous culture clash comedy, Rogen and Rose Byrne play a young couple forced to square up to Zac Efron’s Teddy, a hard-partying frat boy who lives next door. The upcoming sequel is just as fun.
2. This Is The End (2013)
Rogen co-directed, co-wrote and starred in this clever and inventive comedy, which imagines how guests at one of James Franco’s Hollywood parties might respond to an impending global apocalypse.
1. Knocked Up (2007)
Perfectly cast as a loveable slacker struggling to accept he’s about to become a dad, Rogen is both funny and touching in Judd Apatow’s top-notch comedy.
