Comic actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse was still in high school when he landed the role of Fogell -- a.k.a. "McLovin" -- in the Seth Rogen comedy Superbad (2007). Although he had been involved in student theater, Mintz-Plasse had no professional acting experience prior to the scene-stealing turn that launched his career. He toured the world and the talk show circuit to promote Superbad, appeared in some short films online and landed more work in movies, including an animated feature based on the children's book How to Train Your Dragon (by Cressida Cowell) and the Paul Rudd comedy Role Models (2008).
