I think this man has some real potential and he's always been the best thing in the films I've seen him in (not that I've seen him in many, mind). I had no idea he'd go from the weird guy with the Jew-fro in The 40-Year-Old Virgin to having a hand in two of the years funniest comedies, Knocked Up and Superbad.

What do you guys think - is he in it for the long-run or is now just his moment?

He's great, but he could be like a lot of comic actors and have a great period of 5 or so years, and then find themselves no longer flavour of the month.

I'd say Ben Stiller is in that period now - taking any old crap (Along Came Polly ) which negates the genuinely good stuff that he does.

Can you see Rogen around in five years? Judging from the Empire interview with himself and Judd Apatow he's not exactly motivated, though how you can get yourself this far without motivation is hard to comprehend. Not like every unemployed actor who's "writing a script" comes out with material like Superbad.

My sister had dinner at his house not so long ago as her boyfriend and Seth are friends, she said he was a pot mong and un-interesting. Really. He has got some potential however, hes an excellent screenwriter.

I wasn't keen on Superbad but loved knocked up.  I think his great.

He was good in Superbad and Knocked Up(the only two of his films I've seen). But like others I can't really see him being around for long-he just looks lazy!

seth rogan is really funny.  the guy he plays in movies is pretty much him.  He doesnt act much, hes just a naurally funny and outrageous kinda guy.

He's quite funny, but there's something about his face I just don't like, I can't place what annoys me, but there's definitely something.

I can't see many of the current comedy favourites of the moment being around for more than a few years, it often seems in line with SNL's turnover.

One of favourite actors right now. He's so good in Pineapple Express and Knocked Up. Even that cameo in Step Brothers was good.

He's pretty funny as an actor but I think he has way more potential as a writer.

A fantastic comic actor. He was brilliant in Pineapple Express, Superbad, Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin and Zack And Miri Make A Porno.

Has so much potential and i look foward to his future work as anything he touches turns to gold...
