SETH RO­GAN

AC­TOR, VOICE OF TRANSLINK

Vancouver Magazine - - Taste -

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 unoicial 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.
