Sam Neill is an avid wine collector and owns a winery in Queenstown, New Zealand and two others in Alexandra. His Queenstown location is called Two Paddocks, which he claims is a labor of love and not a profitable vocation due to the amount of money it takes to run a winery and the heavy time consumption.

During the middle part of the 1980s, Neill was in contention to replace Roger Moore as James Bond but lost out to Timothy Dalton, who played the legendary super spy for two films. Neill’s screen-test for the role can be found online or in the Special features to Dalton’s first film, The Living Daylights.

Seth Rogen is a long time friend and co-worker with Director/Producer Judd Apatow. They met during Rogen’s first acting gig on Freaks and Geeks, produced by Apatow. Impressed by Rogen’s comedy style, he cast him again on another short lived TV show, Undeclared, about college students. While he struggled to gain auditions after the cancellation of these shows, Apatow kept him in mind until he would cast him later in several hit films.

 

Active in several charity organizations, Rogen is a hardcore supporter of Gay and Lesbian rights and an admitted marijuana user. He also supports Alzheimer’s disease awareness as his mother-in-law is affected by it.
