Seth Rogen is making a Comeback.
When Seth Rogen isn’t baiting Bieber, effing around with Efron, or frighteningly serving as a Franco painting subject, he apparently likes to dress up like a little girl and toss around the pigskin.
Or at least that’s what he’s doing as a guest star on tonight’s episode of Loiter Squad (midnight, Adult Swim), Odd Future’s sketch comedy show that kicked off its third season last week. (Their mutual admiration continues, as Rogen was seen wearing an Odd Future hat and T-shirt in Neighbors.) Click on the video below to watch Tyler, the Creator, Jasper Dolphin, and Earl Sweatshirt engage in some harmless skateboarding in the park before mixing it up with a certain comedy star whose safe word seems to be “Mom.” READ FULL STORY
It’s been awhile since NBC aired three new SNL episodes in a row — but the network announced Wednesday that after its current hiatus, the sketch show will return with a vengeance.
On March 29, previously announced host Louis C.K. will return to helm the show a second time. He’ll be joined by just-divulged musical guest Sam Smith, an English singer/songwriter whose debut album, In the Lonely Hour, will be released in the U.S. on June 17.
April 5 will see an SNL debut: Oscar nominee (and Pitch Perfect star) Anna Kendrick will host the show for the first time, with musical guest Pharrell Williams (making his first solo appearance on the show). Kendrick has several films coming out later this year, included the highly anticipated musicals The Last Five Years and Into the Woods. Williams, whose Oscar-nominated tune “Happy” is still topping the charts, released his last album, G I R L, earlier this month.
Finally, Seth Rogen will return to host for a third time April 12, with musical guest Ed Sheeran. Rogen’s comedy Neighbors, which costars Zac Efron and Rose Byrne, hits theaters May 9. Taylor Swift pal Sheeran is making his debut as musical guest; he plans to premiere the first single from his second album on SNL.
'Simpsons' episode to feature voices of Judd Apatow, Channing Tatum, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and Seth Rogen -- EXCLUSIVE
Late last year, news broke that The Simpsons were going to turn a decades-old spec script written by Judd Apatow into an episode. As it turns out, the A-list comedy writer-director-producer is collaborating with the animated series in front of the microphone as well. EW has learned that a different episode — which was already known to boast Will Arnett as a guest star — features the voices of Apatow, frequent collaborators Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, and Seth Rogen, plus Channing Tatum and… Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.

Aziz Ansari has already produced two successful stand-up specials: Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening and Dangerously Delicious, so it’s no surprise he’s trying to think of a fun hook for his upcoming third comedy release. The answer? Product placement tie-in.
Joined by Seth Rogen, Ansari, inspired by Samsung-sponsored Jay-Z, flirts with Bugles chips and Toaster Strudel a.k.a. Pilsbury Toaster Tablet as comedy launching vehicles, before realizing they have some drawbacks. He finally settles with the much-less-exciting-but-much-healthier-to-binge-on Netflix.
This isn’t the first time a comedian has released a stand-up special straight to the streaming site, but Ansari is one of the most high-profile people to do so. The Parks and Recreation star’s special will explore “pending adulthood, babies, marriage, and love in the modern era,” similar topics to his recently-announced book deal.
Treat yo self to the trailer for Buried Alive below:
Seth Rogen got his start on TV — as the droll funnyman on Judd Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared — and now he’s coming home with his new animated comedy series Bigfoot, with FX Networks ordering up the pilot today.
Rogen collaborated with longtime co-writer Evan Goldberg (Superbad), American Dad! voice actor and writer Matt McKenna, and illustrator/writer Graham Roumieu on the show, which is based on Roumieu’s Bigfoot graphic-novel “autobiographies.”
“This will be the greatest show about an animated Bigfoot ever made,” Rogen promised in a press release announcing the news.
Comedy Central is turning up the celebrity heat on its roast of James Franco: Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari and SNL vet/Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg have been added to the roster of comedians and actors who will take their best shots at the thespian/director/writer/producer/Oscar host. The network previously announced that Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross, and Sarah Silverman will serve as roasters, while Franco’s This is the End/Pineapple Express/Freaks & Geeks co-star Seth Rogen emcees the festivities as Roast Master.
The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco will be filmed Aug. 25 and airs Sept. 2 at 10 p.m.
The network’s roast specials, which began in 2003, have celebrated/ridiculed the careers of celebs such as Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Charlie Sheen, and Roseanne Barr.
Ten years ago, NBC had the chutzpah to attempt to adapt Ricky Gervais’s shortlived but much-admired British sitcom, The Office, and a gaggle of relatively unknown actors and actresses auditioned to become the Americanized Tim and Dawn, David and Gareth. When Rainn Wilson posted the new show’s original audition list last March on Facebook, as the American show was taking its final bow, he opened up a parlor game of what-ifs — Adam Scott as Jim? — teasing fans who could only imagine what those audition tapes might look like.
Well, those tapes are out of the vault. When season 9 of The Office arrives on Blu-ray on Sept. 3, the 2003 casting tapes are one of the best bonus features. A few clues about some of the notable names who read — before you click below to see for yourself: one actor went on to win two Emmy Awards, another came from the Judd Apatow stable of comedy all-stars, and one is now a crew member of the USS Enterprise.

Expect a ton of Freaks and Geeks jokes.
Seth Rogen will be Roastmaster of the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Rogen tweeted today. “I will be “Roastmaster” at the
#FrancoRoast on @ComedyCentral. It’s to help promote the Russian release of “This Is The End.”
Comedy Central also sent out its own tweet, “We’re pleased to announce @SethRogen as Roast Master for the #FrancoRoast, airing Labor Day!”
While no preview featuring the This Is The End costars together has surfaced, yesterday Comedy Central put out an ad featuring James Franco getting punched in the face by a mysterious arm. Perhaps that hand was Rogen’s? READ FULL STORY
On June 10, John Oliver will begin his run as guest-host of The Daily Show, while Jon Stewart takes a hiatus to direct his first feature film, Rosewater. Oliver’s first guest will be Seth Rogen.
Oliver has worked at The Daily Show since 2006. Later this summer, he is also set to host the fourth season of John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show on Comedy Central.
Oliver joked in the press release, ”Don’t worry, it’s still going to be everything that you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love the most about it.” Stewart returns Tuesday, September 3.
Here’s a clip of Oliver’s stand-up to ease you into the transition: READ FULL STORY
Seth Rogen is taking a break from his Guilt Trip for a trip down memory lane on The Mindy Project.
Fox has announced that the actor, who currently stars alongside Barbra Streisand in The Guilt Trip, will guest on the Feb. 19 episode of the freshman comedy as Sam, a man who once had a teen romance with Mindy. (He was her first kiss!)
In the episode, titled “The One That Got Away,” Mindy finds herself reunited with Sam, and after reminiscing about their time at Jewish summer camp, they begin to rekindle their puppy love.
Rogen is arguably one of the biggest-name guest stars to visit The Mindy Project, which last month also booked Office alum B.J. Novak for a guest stint.
Mindy returns tonight with new episodes.
