Seth Rogen famous for starring as "the chubby guy" in films such as Knocked Up, Superbad and The 40 year Old Virgin has shed over 30 pounds for his role as the Green Hornet, a comic book crime-fighting hero.
Seth has admitted he feels like a sell-out for trying to alter the shape of his body for a role, "I lost the weight for a role, but i don't know if i'll keep it off. That's the big question. I have a lot of tantrums. I want my food. I cry for no reason."
However, his dramatic weight loss has led to new "role". Seth is becoming only the 9th man to ever grace the cover of Playboy. The April issue due out on April 10th 2009 will have a man on the cover for the first time this century! Seth joked in the issue, "Woody Allen created a look for small, nebbishy Jews and i'm doing the same for the chubby Jewish guys!"
