How Seth Rogen Achieved a Net Worth of $55 Million

Seth Rogen is a man of many talents. He is at times a comedian, while at other times he is busy writing away at scripts for various genres of film. He has also been both an actor and a voice actor. Rogen is a Canadian-American, was born in 1982, and has already amassed a fortune that is estimated at $55 million and growing. You might wonder just how he was able to do that.

The Early Days

It seems that since Seth was a child, all he ever wanted to be was a comedian. In fact, he did not see himself acting, as he just wanted to tell jokes and make people laugh. He was so serious about what he saw to be his future profession that he attended a comedy workshop taught by Mark Pooley when he just 11 years old. Even then, people remarked just how deep his voice was. That voice has become his trademark and has earned him many roles that were much older than his actual age. For example, he played a character on The 40-Year-Old Virgin who was over 30 years old, when Rogen himself was not even yet 20.

He actually started his performing career doing a series of stand-up comedy routines while he was still a teenager. This all took place in Vancouver, and his shows allowed him to begin to develop quite a name for himself. This would lead into him moving into a support role on Freaks and Geeks. This was a part of Judd Apatow’s series. This continued his move up the celebrity ranks, where he would eventually move to Los Angeles.

Writing and Acting Career

Sadly, Freaks and Geeks was canceled but Rogen did not let that deter him. He would remain in Los Angeles, eventually landing a role as a writer on the comedy show Undeclared. This would springboard his writing career, which is something that he never really saw coming. Nonetheless, his role as a writer has greatly attributed to his overall net worth. He was a writer for the final season of the Da Ali G Show. This would push him towards an acting career. His first appearance on a movie set came back in 2001. It was a minor role on Donnie Darko.

From here, things really started to pick up for Rogen. He earned a supporting role on The 40 Year Old Virgin, where he was also credited with being the co-producer. This was also an Apatow film, who by this time had fallen in love with Rogen’s work. He would go on to star in two more films produced by Apatow. They were Knocked Up and Funny People. He ended up also being a co-star in a Universal film entitled Steve Jobs back in 2015.

In 2016, he would resume his writing career by helping to develop Preacher, which is a television series produced by AMC. From there, he would go on to co-write the following films: Superbad, Pineapple Express, This is the End and The Green Hornet. Needless to say, this alone has helped him to amass quite a fortune. He also shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Also, don’t forget that his first love has always been comedy.

Current Day Success

Rogen has recently gotten into the voiceover business. He is the voice of Pumbaa. You might remember Pumbaa as the warthog in the remake of The Lion King. This is slated to be released in mid-summer of 2019. He will continue his acting career by playing the role of an unemployed journalist in Long Shot. This is a comedy that Rogen really enjoyed getting the role for. Beyond this, he has been cast to play the part of Walter Cronkite in Newsflash, which is a historical drama. All in all, Rogen has a seemingly never ending list of projects that he is scheduled to work on.

So, when it is all said and done, Seth Rogen has a net worth estimated to currently stand at $55. His one appearance in the 2011 film The Green Hornet netted him more than $6 million, while his role in the 2007 film Knocked Up earned him $5 million. Beyond that, his stand up comedy routines, script writing, and other acting roles have earned him millions more.
