Seth Rogen Is Guesting on The League

Rogen.

Underappreciated FX bro-com The League should get a nice boost of attention via a bit of stunt casting: Movie star (movie star?) Seth Rogen will make a guest appearance in the show's third season premiere. He'll be playing Dirty Randy, a friend of Jason Mantzoukas's character Rafic, and a running joke on the show for his infamous behavior. Rogen, of course, has arguably had some of his greatest success on the small screen, both with Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, and should feel right at home. Anyway, since the topic has been broached: How is everyone feeling about Seth these days?! His last project, The Green Hornet, sort of came and went, but did end up making $220 million worldwide. His next project is ambitious cancer comedy 50/50. So, where on the Undulating Curve of Shifting Expectations is Seth Rogen?
