WATCH: Seth Rogen Gives Funny But Heartfelt Senate Testimony on Alzheimer’s
Seth Rogen testified before a U.S. Senate hearing on Alzheimer’s disease research on Wednesday.

Rogen cracked up the room with a dig at Sen. Tom Harkin’s failure to see Knocked Up, an acknowledgment of his well-known affection for weed, and references to Xbox and “House of Cards.”
