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.

    I will still watch The Comeback, but the episodes with him I will be less interested in. I have never liked him or a character he has ever played.

    • Williwasnt says:

      You’ve obviously never watched “The League.” His character arc on that show is Tony-worthy.

      • torimelching says:

        Oh I watch The League. The episodes with him are some of the worst episodes on TV.

        • Williwasnt says:

          How could you watch the league and not understand the complexities of Dirty Randy?

          • torimelching says:

            He is not complex he is a freaking idiot, the same for Rafi. If Rafi is with some of the main characters he isn’t as bad. But the 2 episodes that have just featured Rafi and Dirty Randy are horrible.
