Early Years

Evan Goldberg was born Evan D. Goldberg in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on September 15, 1982. He attended Point Grey Secondary School while growing up in a Jewish home in Marple. After graduating from high school, Goldberg attended at McGill University, where he met Seth Rogen. David, Evan’s brother, provided drawings to the books “Superbad: The Illustrated Moviebook” (2007) and “Superbad: The Paintings” (2008); some of these drawings appeared in the end credits of the film.

Career

Goldberg’s writing career began in 2004 alongside Seth Rogen on HBO’s “Da Ali G Show.” In 2007, the pair co-produced the blockbuster films “Superbad” and “Knocked Up,” which grossed $170,8 million and $219 million, respectively. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are the major characters in “Superbad,” which was partially based on their high school experience; their production firm, Point Grey Pictures (established in 2011), is named after their high school. Goldberg and Rogen co-wrote the 2007 short film “Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse,” which they extended into the 2013 feature picture “This Is the End.” Evan and Seth approached James L. Brooks, executive producer of “The Simpsons,” if they could create an episode of the program after learning that he was a fan of their work. The 2009 episode “Homer the Whopper” was the result of the acceptance of one of numerous concepts pitched in the writers’ room.

Goldberg and Rogan co-wrote and co-produced the 2011 superhero film “The Green Hornet,” and they also co-produced their buddy Will Reiser’s 2011 film “50/50.” On “Da Ali G Show,” Goldberg, Rogen, and Reiser collaborated, and Evan and Seth urged Will to create a screenplay on his experience with spine cancer. Goldberg and Rogen co-produced “The Guilt Trip” in 2012, which starred Seth and Barbra Streisand, and “Neighbors” and “The Interview” in 2014. Evan and Seth co-directed “The Interview,” which is infamous for nearly igniting a war, with North Korea’s leadership vowing “ruthless” reprisal against the United States in an effort to prevent the film’s distribution. Goldberg and Rogen co-produced the 2015 Christmas film “The Night Before,” although only Evan wrote the script.

In 2016, they co-produced “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” and “Sausage Party,” both of which grossed over $100 million at the box office, and created the AMC series “Preacher.” Based on the same-named Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series, the show broadcast 43 episodes over four seasons. Evan and Seth served as executive producers and co-directors for the episodes “Pilot,” “See,” “On the Road,” and “Bombay Sky Tower.” They also co-directed the 2017 short “Bananas Town,” the “Future Man” episodes “Pilot,” “Herpe: Fully Loaded,” and “A Riphole in Time,” the 2018 TV movie “Singularity,” and the “Black Monday” episode “365” during this time period. In recent years, Goldberg and Rogen co-produced “The Disaster Artist” (2017), “Blockers” (2018), “Game Over, Man!” (2018), “Long Shot” (2019), “Good Boys” (2019), and “An American Pickle” (2020). Evan co-produced the 2017 film “Goon: Last of the Enforcers” alongside Jay Baruchel and Seann William Scott.
