Hollywood actor Seth Rogen has been cast in Aziz Ansari’s directorial debut “Being Mortal,” which also stars Bill Murray.

Not only does Ansari direct and appear in the film, but he also wrote the screenplay and produced with Youree Henley. Taylor Friedman and Cameron Chidsey oversee Searchlight Pictures, ‘Variety’ reports.

The film is based on Atul Gawande’s nonfiction book, “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters at the End,” which admittedly doesn’t look like a laugh riot.

Principal photography will begin in April, with Searchlight Pictures set to release the film theatrically in 2023.

Seth Rogen can currently be seen in “Pam & Tommy” with Lily James and Sebastian Stan. He recently starred in “An American Pickle” and “Long Shot” alongside Charlize Theron.

Seth Rogen’s other credits include “Superbad” and “Knocked Up”.

Seth Rogen will next be seen in Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” alongside Michelle Williams and Paul Dano for Universal Pictures.

Ansari, the ‘Parks & Recreation’ star and stand-up sensation, took a break after sexual misconduct allegations were made against him in 2018.

At the time, he said he thought the sexual activity was consensual. He has since returned to film and television with “Master of None: Moments in Love” and his sixth stand-up special, “Nightclub Comedian.”
