Seth Rogen is about to go where only eight other men have gone before – the cover of Playboy.
The funnyman will grace the magazine’s April issue, Access Hollywood has learned.
He will be the first gent to do so in over a decade. The last male cover star was KISS rocker Gene Simmons, who was featured on the cover of the March 1999 issue.
Peter Sellers was the first male to appear on the legendary mag cover in April 1964. He has been followed over the years by Burt Reynolds, Steve Martin, Donald Trump, Dan Aykroyd, Jerry Seinfeld, Leslie Nielsen and Simmons.
Much like his predecessors, Rogen will not appear solo – he will be accompanied by a lovely lady on the cover – model Hope Dworaczyk (who has a child with NBA star Jason Kidd).
Rogen, the star of “Knocked Up,” “Pineapple Express” and the upcoming “The Green Hornet,” will next be seen on the big screen in the comedy “Observe and Report,” alongside Anna Faris.
The issue of Playboy featuring Rogen on the cover hits newsstands in late March.
