The sun in the Apatow Universe, Seth Rogen appeared as the wise-cracking Ken Miller in Freaks and Geeks and worked as a writer on Apatow's other short-lived television show, Undeclared. Rogen went on to appear in Apatow-affiliated films including Anchorman (as a cameraman), The 40-Year Old Virgin (as the tattooed stock-dude Cal) and as Ben Stone in Knocked Up. The collaboration continued with Superbad and Pineapple Express (Rogen co-wrote both films), as well as a cameo in the Apatow-produced Step Brothers. Rogen also starred in Funny People, which Apatow directed.
