Seth Rogen may be taking another serious jump in his career—the funny man recently made the transformation from stoner comic to comic book hero and now he is in talks to star in a musical?!
Could it be true?! Find out more after the jump!
This rumor is…wait for it…true! And it seems Rogen is already doing research for his possible role in the film adaptation of the hit musical Rock of Ages!!
The actor was spotted out in Toronto, Canada over the weekend in the audience of a production of the musical, and is in talks to play Lonny in the film version.
The story is based on story of two rock fans who manage to find love amidst the backdrop of the Los Angeles famous Sunset Strip in 1987, and is of course set to a soundtrack of rock anthems of the era.
It used to be difficult to imagine Seth Rogen playing even a slightly serious character. Yet, Rogen has proven all the doubters wrong! He has taken on a range of characters over the last year, but who knew he was hiding this up his sleeve?! Rock of Ages (the film) is to be directed by Adam Shankman and is expected to start shooting later this year.
