Superbad is hilarious. Period. But here's some interesting nepotistic tidbits about its stars:
Jonah Hill ("Seth") won the role over Bo Barett (who is the son of production designer K.K. Barrett). Jonah is friends with Dustin Hoffman's children Rebecca and Jake, which is how he found out about the role of "Bret" in I Heart Huckabees.
Seth Rogen's ("Officer Michaels") father, Mark Rogen, is the guy who chases Seth and Evan out of his backyard with a baseball bat after they fell on his children's tent while running from the police.
Marcella Lentz-Pope ("Gabby") is the daughter of TV actress Patricia Lentz and Tony Pope, who was the voice of the 1998 hit toy "Furby" (according to imdb.com).
Dave Franco, younger brother of actor James Franco (Spiderman), plays the soccer player who admonishes Evan for standing around and talking to Seth during the memorable scene when Seth says (edited for content) "You know when you hear girls say 'Ah man, I was so ***-faced last night, I shouldn't have ****** that guy?' We could be that mistake! "
Laura Marano ("Young Becca") is the younger sister of Vanessa Marano, who plays the role of Anthony LaPaglia's daughter on TV's Without a Trace.
