Seth Rogen starred as Ben Stone, a marijuana-smoking soft-core pornography connoisseur who gets Alison Scott pregnant during a one-night stand.
Seth Rogen is now a top name in the entertainment world. While he got his big break years earlier on the TV show "Freaks and Geeks," his role in "Knocked Up" showed that he could be a leading man. He went on to star in "Pineapple Express," another pot-related cult favorite, as well as the more recent "Neighbors" and "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising." He's also continued to work with many of his "Knocked Up" co-stars (including James Franco) on other projects. He took on a more serious role for a change in 2015's "Steve Jobs," in which he played Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. In addition to being a great actor, Seth is also a successful screenwriter who's penned many projects for himself and others including "Superbad," "The is the End," "The Watch," "The Interview" and more. In 2011, he married writer-actress Lauren Miller.
Katherine Heigl starred as Alison Scott, an E! News reporter who gets pregnant during a one-night stand with Ben Stone.
After "Knocked Up," Katherine Heigl became a bit of go-to in the romantic comedy genre, starring in "27 Dresses," "The Ugly Truth" and "Life As We Know It." In 2010, she left "Grey's Anatomy" (easily her breakout role) amid allegations that she was somewhat difficult to work with. A few years before that, she actually threw shade at "Knocked Up," telling Vanity Fair that the film is "a little sexist." Over the years, she's tried to clarify her comments, saying that the film isn't sexist, but rather the way she played her character was. She told Howard Stern she was "embarrassed" about the fiasco. Seth Rogan has said he felt "betrayed" by her comments, but doesn't hold a grudge. Still, it hasn't been smooth sailing for Katherine, who's had a couple of TV series fail to succeed in recent years: In 2017, her CBS drama, "Doubt," was pulled after just two episodes; in 2015, her NBC show, "State of Affairs," ended after just 13 poorly reviewed episodes. Her 2017 film "Unforgettable," co-starring Rosario Dawson, also tanked in theaters. Katherine married musician Josh Kelley six months after "Knocked Up" was released and they now have three children together: daughter Naleigh, who arrived via adoption in 2009; daughter Adalaide, who was adopted in 2012; and biological son Joshua Jr., who joined the family in 2016.
Leslie Mann starred as Alison Scott's older sister Debbie, a woman who unapologetically supports her sibling in every way. She also can't figure out why her marriage has stalled.
Leslie Mann is still married to the writer and director of "Knocked Up," Judd Apatow. The couple's two daughters, Maude and Iris, appeared in the movie too. Leslie went on to star in the "Knocked Up" sequel, 2012's "This is 40," opposite on-screen husband Paul Rudd. She has continued to make a name for herself in the comedy world, most recently starring in "The Other Woman," "Vacation" and "How To Be Single."
Paul Rudd starred as Pete, Alison Scott's brother-in-law and Debbie's husband. Pete is a little bored by his marriage and befriends Ben Stone during his sister-in-law's pregnancy.
Paul Rudd is everywhere — and to be fair, he was already a bona fide star before both "Knocked Up" and its sequel, "This is 40," came out. Paul received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2015. One of the most universally loved actors in recent years, he has lead films such as "I Love You, Man" and "Our Idiot Brother." His career was sent into another universe when he officially joined the Marvel family when he starred as "Ant-Man" in 2015. He has since appeared in two other Marvel films, with two more on the way, including an "Ant-Man" sequel. He's been married to Julie Yaeger, a former publicist, since 2003. The couple share two kids, Jack and Darby.
Jason Segel starred as, conveniently enough, Jason, one of Ben Stone's marijuana-loving roommates. Jason was also on hand the evening that Ben and Alison hooked up, which was the same night he developed an infatuation with Alison's married sister, Debbie.
To say Jason Segel is talented wouldn't be doing him justice. He's an actor, yes, but he's also a legitimate writer. Jason wrote and starred in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" in 2008 (a film co-produced by "Knocked Up" writer-director Judd Apatow). He's starred opposite several of his "Knocked Up" co-stars over the years. Since "Knocked Up," Jason has written several films including "Sex Tape," "The Muppets" reboot and "The Five-Year Engagement." A multi-faceted actor, Jason also starred on TV's "How I Met Your Mother" until the show ended in 2014. As for his personal life, Jason — who split from actress Michelle Williams in 2013 after a year of dating — has been seeing photographer Alexis Mixter since early 2015.
Jonah Hill starred as Jonah, another one of Ben Stone's marijuana-loving roommates. Jonah is dumbfounded when he finds out Ben got Alison pregnant.
After "Knocked Up," Jonah Hill went on to star in "Superbad" with a few of his "Knocked Up" co-stars. For three consecutive years, he appeared in movies that were nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards: "Moneyball" in 2011, "Django Unchained" in 2012 and "The Wolf of Wall Street" in 2013. Personally, he's been nominated for two Academy Awards, both times for Best Supporting Actor, for his work in "Moneyball" and "The Wolf of Wall Street." He's also become a leading man in his own right, starring in the "21 Jump Street" movie as well as its sequel, "22 Jump Street." In 2017, he was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in "War Dogs." Over the years, he's become close friends with co-stars Channing Tatum and Leonardo DiCaprio. He also made headlines for his dramatic weight loss in 2016.
Martin Starr is, like many others, a roommate of Ben Stone's. His character's name is — you guessed it! — Martin.
Martin Starr hasn't had the same big screen success as some of the other stars in "Knocked Up," but he's carved out a great career mostly on television and is starting to reap the rewards. After his cult-fave Starz comedy series "Party Down" wrapped up in 2010, Martin — who co-starred with Seth Rogen in TV's "Freaks and Geeks" in the late '90s — popped up on shows including "Burning Love" and "Parks and Recreation" before becoming a lead on HBO's "Silicon Valley" in 2014 playing cynical programmer Bertram Gilfoyle. In July 2017, he'll co-star in "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Welcome to Marvel, Martin.
Harold Ramis played Ben Stone's dad, who was very supportive of the pregnancy.
Harold Ramis was an on-screen legend long before "Knocked Up"… Hello, "Ghostbusters," people! He only acted in two more movies after "Knocked Up," but Harold was also a writer and he penned the screenplay for the 2009 Jack Black film "Year One." Harold passed away on Feb. 24, 2014, from complications of a rare autoimmune disease. He was 69. Upon his death, then-President Barack Obama released a statement: "When we watched his movies — from 'Animal House' and 'Caddyshack' to 'Ghostbusters' and 'Groundhog Day' — we didn't just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider. We rooted for the underdog." He ended the statement with a line from "Caddyshack," saying he hopes that Harold has "received total consciousness."
Jay Baruchel is, yup, a roommate of Ben Stone's, but he's perhaps the only one excited about Ben becoming a father. The name of Jay's character? Jay.
Jay Baruchel hasn't become the mainstream star that many of his "Knocked Up" co-stars have become, but his face is well-known to audiences, as he's gone on to star in "Tropic Thunder," "This Is the End" and the FXX series "Man Seeking Woman." What you might not realize is that Jay has a cushy little life as a voice actor in the animated world. In 2010, he was the voice of Hiccup the viking in "How To Train Your Dragon." The franchise will release its third installment in 2019, again with Jay as the lead. He and "The Newsroom" actress Alison Pill ended their two-year engagement in 2013.
Ken Jeong played Dr. Kuni, the doctor who eventually delivered Ben and Alison's baby.
Ken Jeong can absolutely credit "Knocked Up" with giving him his big break. But the real-life doctor-turned-actor's biggest movie role came in 2009 when he started appearing in the "The Hangover" trilogy. He also had a long run on the TV show "Community" for six years and later on the short-lived sitcom "Dr. Ken." He has been married to physician Tran Ho since 2003. The couple welcomed twin daughters, Alexa and Zooey, in 2008.
