Seth Rogen may be known for starring in some raunchy comedies, but there's one issue he doesn't take lightly: Alzheimer's disease.

The condition hits close to home because of his future mother-in-law, who is only 59 and has already had it for several years. And now Rogen, who has no family history of the disease, has become passionate about supporting his fiancee's family and spreading awareness of Alzheimer's.

SETH ROGEN COMBS THE COMIC-book store like he's on a mission. He starts at one end of Golden Apple in Hollywood and methodically works his way down the aisles, scanning the shelves for The Authority and other favorites.

Although Rogen did not get many auditions following "Undeclared," he was not particularly bothered about that fact, as he fancied himself more a writer than an actor anyway. In fact, Rogen long attributed his nervous laughter to his own awkwardness and discomfort with being an actor. (even years later, the crew of "Knocked Up" would assemble a reel of all his nervous giggles). While Rogen remained unattached project-wise, Apatow constantly subjected Rogen and his writing partner and childhood friend, Evan Goldberg, to impossible writing tasks.

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Rogen began his acting career at an early age. By the age of eleven, he was acting in plays in Chinatown, Vancouver, and at age 13, his mother would drive him to a local club, Yuk Yuk's, to do his stand-up comedy routine. Rogen recalled to the A.V. Club that the stand-up routine was actually his parents' idea. "I knew I just loved comedy, and I think it was my parents who initially brought up the notion of me trying to do stand-up. I think I actually tried writing jokes just at home, just kind of sitting around. But it seemed like a very real way to step into the world of comedy. I felt I could do it, so why not?"
