Around this time, he landed a role on Judd Apatow's television show Freaks and Geeks after attending a local casting call.
Revolving around a group of teenagers' lives, Freaks and Geeks first aired in 1999.
They initially worried that American Pie (1999) had beaten them to the idea for the movie, but they decided that the film "managed to totally avoid all honest interaction between characters...
which is what we're going for." Also when Rogen was 16, his father lost his job and his mother quit hers, forcing them to put their house up for sale and relocate to a significantly smaller apartment.
After landing his job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, Apatow guided him toward a film career.
Rogen was chosen to play the film's protagonist, a 25-year-old who accidentally witnesses a murder while delivering a subpoena.
James Franco was cast as his hippie pot dealer that he goes on the run with.
Rogen was originally set to play a fairly popular but nerdy college freshman, but the network did not think he was leading male material. Of the awkwardness of a grown man spending so much time with a teenaged Rogen, Apatow said: "I'm such a comedy fan that, even though he's 16, I know I'm hanging out with one of the guys who's going to be one of the great comics." His breakthrough came when Universal Studios greenlit him for the lead in yet another Apatow production: Knocked Up (2007), a romantic comedy that follows the repercussions of a drunken one-night stand between his slacker character and Katherine Heigl's just-promoted media personality that results in an unintended pregnancy.
Upon completing The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Apatow had approached Rogen about potential starring roles, but the actor suggested many high-concept science fiction ideas.
