ACTOR, VOICE OF TRANSLINK
NEW When Translink pulled a Morgan Freeman voice-over campaign this summer after the actor was accused of misconduct, a
Province reporter half-jokingly tweeted that Vancouverborn Seth Rogan would make an excellent substitute— and, just a few months later, commuters were delighted to hear local-boy-made-good Rogan instructing them to not hold the train doors. It’s really no surprise he agreed to take on this role as unoicial Skytrain ambassador: Rogan started working on Superbad when he was just a west-side high school student, and he hasn’t lost his hometown pride (he even named his production company Point Grey Pictures). And now, in addition to (kind of) helping the trains run on time, he’s been making the late-night rounds to talk about this role of a lifetime—shining a little Hollywood glamour on both our city and our humble transit system.
