Ever since Goldberg began his career with HBO's "Da Ali G Show" back in 2004, writing has been his key revenue-generating talent, before he went on to co-direct and co-produce silverscreen projects like "Knocked Up," and "Superbad". The latter was loosely based on Goldberg and Rogen's own high school experience and the characters were also named after them. Backed by this success, the duo later set up their own production company, Point Grey Pictures. They went on to work on many projects together, including Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse," "This Is the End" and more.

The two have also produced the 2011 superhero movie, "The Green Hornet," and produced "The Guilt Trip," which starred Seth and Barbra Streisand. But Goldberg and Rogen hit global headlines for "The Interview," which was a parody on the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

The two also worked together on the animated film "Sausage Party,"  which performed well at the box office and earned more than $100 million.
