All-round good human has been working the Hollywood circuit for almost two decades now, starting off in '90s cult series Freaks and Geeks and most recently voicing a sausage in a movie he wrote called Sausage Party.

Over the years, via appearing in a few "small" projects you might have heard of such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Superbad, Rogen has truly become synonymous with the comedy genre. Add this to the fact he looks like he'd literally give the best bear hug on the planet, runs his own charity, called Justin Bieber out that one time for being a little shit and well, a bunch of other stuff, there are plenty of reasons to love the guy.

If you loved him in This Is the End or Sausage Party you’ll be dying to know the next Seth Rogen films where you can watch this loveable man-bear in action. Unless you’re a die-hard S-Rogz fan, you might not be aware what upcoming Seth Rogen releases there are set to be and what he's up to in 2017. So to help keep you on top of this cheery Canadian sausage‘s anticipated new movie releases, we've made a handy list of new & upcoming Seth Rogen films. From buddy comedies to rom coms, the latest flicks from Seth Rogen should get fans of the nice guy of comedy excited for these movies coming out.

1. The Disaster Artist

  • Release date: December 8, 2017
  • Director: James Franco
  • Cast: Dylan Minnette, Zoey Deutch, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen

Formerly known as 'The Masterpiece', The Disaster Artist is a behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau's beyond terrible (read: beyond amazing) box office bust, The Room. Few movies have been as awful as this flick; characters are introduced, then instantly disappear. Idioms that make zero sense — "Keep your stupid comments in your pocket!" — are thrown around like wild hobbits, and don't get me started on the sex scenes. James Franco takes the directorial helm with Rogen starring alongside an all-star cast of comedy greats.

2. B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations

  • Release date: December 31, 2017
  • Director: Tony Leondis
  • Cast: Rashida Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Matt Bomer, Seth Rogen

B.O.O.:Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations is a DreamWorks flick about good ghosts taking down bad ghosts. The good ghosts work for an agency called B.O.O. — punny acronyms? Check! — who operate to protect humans from evil hauntings. All is ticking over swimmingly until they uncover a spooky ghost army looking to take down humanity.

3: Zeroville

  • Release Date: TBA
  • Director: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Joey King, Megan Fox, Seth Rogen

Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Steve Erickson, James Franco's film Zeroville follows Vikar, a slightly violent man on the autistic spectrum who is obsessed with movies and moves to Hollywood in the 1970s to follow his dreams. While the book is a little more serious, from previously released trailers, and judging by the cast of comedy greats, the film is set to be a little different. Whether this change to a more light-hearted, comedic tone will work out in the film's favor remains to be seen — delays in release seem to suggest there have been some teething problems with the whole project. First set for a 2016 release, Zeroville now looks likely to come out some time in late 2017. Watch this space!

4: Flarsky

  • Release Date: TBA
  • Director: Jonathan Levine
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen

In a tradition dating back to his first big role in Knocked Up, Flarsky will once again see 'nice guy' Seth Rogen paired up with a woman far out of his league, this time, with the outstanding Charlize Theron. Rogen will play an unemployed, down on his luck journalism who tries to finally realize his childhood crush on his old babysitter. That babysitter is now the super successful and super unobtainable Charlize Theron. I for one am shook that the gorgeous Theron is 41, while Rogen is 35, making their age difference in the film totally plausible, even if Charlize's skin makes her look like an ageless elven princess.

5: The Something

  • Release date: TBA
  • Director: Rodney Rothman
  • Cast: Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader

The Something is a comedy movie about a bunch of astronauts who've having been stuck in space for an age come across another ship. Rodney Rothman, the script writer for 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match is behind the project so it's pretty likely this will be a laugh-riot. If nothing else you'll probably get to see Seth Rogen in an astronaut costume, so I'd say that's a good enough reason to be excited.

6. The Lion King

  • Release date: TBA
  • Director: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Seth Rogen, Donald Glover, James Earl Jones

This is the big one. It's been confirmed that Seth Rogen will be stepping into the cloven-hooved shoes of Pumba in the upcoming live-action Disney remake of The Lion King. Simba's lovable adoptive parents and comic relief duo of Timon and Pumba will be played by comedy greats Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner. With the 1997 animated original being so well-loved, it'll be very interesting to see whether the live-action remake can stand up to its legacy. With this top cast currently lined up, it definitely stands a fighting chance.

Which Seth Rogen project are you looking forward to the most?
