Newly Outspoken Seth Rogen Tackles the Film Ratings System

seth rogen and snoopSeth Rogen has become quite the firebrand. A couple of months ago, he was speaking before Congress to raise awareness about the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. And he made sure to let everyone know he thought it was terrible that most of the Congressional panel decided to skip the hearing.

He didn’t get that sign.

Matt Labov Leaves Hollywod PR Firm B|W|R

“What’s bizarre is that this follows B|W|R last month promoting [him] to co-president with Leslie Sloane Zelnik,” writes DeadlineHollywood.com’s Nikki Finke.

Labov handles Jack Black, Steve Carell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, among others. Rumor is he’ll be taking all of this talent with him as he starts up his own shop.
