Crown To Publish Seth Rogen’s First Book, Yearbook, in May

Crown announced it will publish comedian, writer, actor, producer, and director Seth Rogen’s first book, Yearbook, on May 11, 2021, in hardcover and digital formats. 

Rogen first shared the news via his social media platforms. On Twitter, Rogen tweeted: “I wrote a book called Yearbook. It’s true stories and essays and stuff that I hope you think are funny. It comes out in May, but if you like you can order it now.” Rogen shared a similar message on Instagram, adding, “I’ve been working on this for years and am psyched to get it out in to the world. Yay! Thanks to the amazing @toddjamesreas for doing my cover art.”

When approached for comment, Sandy Rogen, Seth’s mother, had this to say:

 “At first I was worried that Seth was writing a book, because I was like, ‘Oh no! What’s he gonna say?!’ I was actually scared to even read it. But I’m very happy I did. It’s not really a memoir, like I thought it might be. I guess it’s more of a bunch of funny stories? Does that make sense? He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to L.A., meeting some famous people, things like that. If I’m being honest, I really wish there wasn’t so much drug talk. Why does he need all that? It’s like ‘We get it!’ And some of the stories? I mean, they’re entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened and he never told me! Overall, I think it’s more sweet and funny than anything, so I like it, and I’m glad he wrote it, but I’d be even more glad if he called me more.”

Watch An American Pickle Trailer

HBO Max has released the official trailer for director Brandon Tost’s forthcoming comedy film adaptation of An American Pickle, providing us with our first look at Seth Rogen as he portrays two identical characters who are both from different timelines. The film will be available for streaming on August 6, 2020.

Rogen will star in dual leading roles in the film. Rogen will play Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1920 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present-day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.

Rich will executive produce along with Point Grey’s Alex McAtee and Ted Gidlow. Rogen and his Point Grey producing partners Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will produce.
