Next up for Seth Rogen: A video game movie and Alzheimer’s activism

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Funny, geeky comedy team Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are moving away from funny and sticking with just geeky for their next project. The two will direct “Console Wars,” a business thriller about the 1990s showdown between video game makers Sega and Nintendo, Booktrade reports.

The film, from the people that brought you “Moneyball” and “The Social Network,” will be an adaptation of the book “CONSOLE WARS: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation” by Blake J. Harris, which comes out this August.

Other unfunny, yet certainly mensch-y Rogen news: On Wednesday he’ll put on his activist hat and going down to Capitol Hill, where he’ll testify at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing titled “The Rising Cost of Alzheimer’s in America.” Rogen will speak  about how the disease has impacted his family.
