Watch: Seth Rogen’s Audition for ‘Freaks & Geeks’

With this year’s comedy hit Neighbors being released on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD this week, it’s interesting to take a look back at the humble beginnings of the movie’s leading man, Seth Rogen. Before he was starring in films like Knocked Up and This Is the End, Rogen first became known to the public as a teenager as a supporting character in the beloved but short-lived 1999 Judd Apatow television series Freaks and Geeks as the “freak” Ken Miller.

Not  surprisingly, despite Rogen’s young age the audition features his trademark laid-back delivery and, of course, jokes about pot. He has those watching his performance in hysterics, but doesn’t break his character’s wry smile.

Check out Rogen’s screen test above!
