Seth Q. Rogen has entered into a lifetime deal to transfer full ownership of his personal autonomy to Netflix, Inc.
Rogen is the celebrated writer/actor/director of films Super bad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party.
Rogen was first discovered by acclaimed producer and director Judd Apatow for his television series Freaks and Geeks,an interaction Seth insists he does not remember. He is also the winner of awards such as the MTV Movie Award for “Best Jawdropper.”
“I have known Seth for many years” said senior Netflix development executive Jareth Chumley, who said the deal came together after a wrap party in late 2017. Upon overhearing Rogen remark that he would “sell my soul for a fuckin’ enchilada right now,” the deal concept was struck. “In the end, we settled on a price a little higher than a standard Chili’s To-Go entree,” said Chumley.
“But I’ll be damned, not by that much.” Rogen responded in kind. “As a general rule, I don’t really ‘read’ anything before I sign it,” he said when asked about the deal. “That’s what Danny is for, he handles that for me, mostly.” He gestured toward an elderly man in a poncho sleeping on the couch behind him. “Hey Danny!” he shouted, but was unable to wake his senior contract advisor. “I really hope he didn’t fuck this up. He’s the reason that Zach and Miri Make a Pornoexists.”
Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity is the first project where Netflix was able to successfully extract comedy directly from the actor’s mind. It will stream April 6.
While the remaining projects Rogen will be participating in have not yet been finalized, Netflix is considering a live-action Shrek remake, starring Rogen as both the titular character as well as that character’s love interest Fiona.
There will also be other tasks considered, including some off-camera roles such as “executive foot massager” and “Quentin’s back waxer”. “The world really is our oyster here,” said Netflix chief operations officer Karen Shart well. “There really isn’t anything on earth that we can’t make him do.”
All inquiries should be sent to [email protected] A copy of the contract will read later on social media. Interested parties are strongly advised to note the date of the announcement – and we don’t mean Easter.
