Seth Rogen Joins The Comeback as Paulie G. — But There's a Twist

Seth Rogen on The Comeback

Valerie Cherish’s biggest rival is making a Comeback, and Seth Rogen’s got something to do with it.

The Pineapple Express actor will guest-star in the long-awaited second season of HBO’s Lisa Kudrow-fronted comedy, BuzzFeed reports.

Rogen will appear in two episodes as himself, where — patience here, because this is a bit confusing — he will portray a fictional version of Valerie’s showbiz nemesis Paulie G. in a new HBO series written by Paulie G. himself (played by Lance Barber). Valerie will also star in the show-within-a-show, titled Seeing Red, playing an exaggerated version of herself named Mallory Church.

In addition to Rogen, Trophy Wife‘s Malin Akerman and Twilight’s Kellan Lutz also will appear in Season 2, reprising their original roles.
