Vancouver-born Hollywood comedy kingpins Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to be inducted in Canada's Walk of Fame

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have never been coy about the love they have for their hometown of Vancouver. The two filmmakers even named their production company, Point Grey Pictures, after their old high school, and it was their experiences there that inspired the two to write their breakout hit, 2007's Superbad.

      Rogen is the better-known of the pair, which makes sense considering that he is also a standup comic and actor in addition to being a writer, producer, and director. (To say nothing of his new gig as a TransLink spokesman.) Goldberg prefers to work behind the scenes, and together he and Rogen have given the world Pineapple ExpressThe Green HornetThis Is the End, and The Interview.

      Earlier this week, Canada's Walk of Fame announced its 2018 inductees, who include Rogen and Goldberg, along with Vancouver business titan Jim Pattison. This year's other inductees include Olympic figure skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, actor-comedian Andrea Martin, astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield, poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, songwriter Andy Kim, and Doctors Without Borders international president Dr. Joanne Liu.

      Rogen took to Twitter to respond to the news of his and Goldberg's induction in true Canadian style—by paying tribute to The Red Green Show.

      Canada's Walk of Fame will officially induct this year's honourees on December 1 at the Sony Centre in Toronto.
