Funny Gotta Start Somewhere...

When it comes to movies, I do comedies. Funny shit will prevail any day of the week and NOBODY is killing the comedy game like Seth Rogen. I mean, 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Step Brothers, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri make a Porno, Observe and Report, Funny People...his movies speak for themselves. The little known fact is that Rogen has been acting in funny shit stuff for years. Back in 1999 he co-starred in the short-lived comedy series Freaks and Geeks on NBC. What's even more interesting were the actors that he worked with on the show, many of which he's worked with again in recent years. Co-stars included James Franco [Pineapple Express], Jason Sigel [Knocked Up], Martin Starr [Knocked Up], David Krumholtz [Knocked Up], Kevin Corrigan [Superbad], Jason Schwartzman [Funny People], and even Shia LaBeouf. One of Judd Apatow's earliest works, the show was hilarious and the cast is classic to say the least. Check out some of the clips:

The Prank Call

And here's Seth Rogen's audition for Freaks and Geeks.
I guess funny really does have to start somewhere.
