Today Is McLovin's 40th Birthday

Superbad's McLovin' would turn 40 today - and something about that makes me feel very old.

The film, which was released back in 2007, centred on high-school losers Seth and Evan, played by Jonah Hill and Michael Cera respectively, who are determined to lose their virginity before graduation.

The movie also introduced us to geek Fogell, played brilliantly by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who managed to get his hands on a fake ID to try and score some booze to take to a party.

The Hawaii drivers license Fogell got his hands on bore the name McLovin and had 3 June 1981 as his date of birth.

Meaning the Honolulu resident would be welcoming his fourth decade on the planet today.

The beloved comedy has had fans clamouring for a sequel pretty much since it was released, but sadly, it seems as though that won't be happening at any point.

Pouring cold-water on any thoughts of a sequel, writer Seth Rogen said in 2016 that a second movie wouldn't feel 'organic'.

In an interview with Cinema Blend, he said: "To us, it was such a personal story. It was about us, and there was just no...

"So what? Now the next one is about how we're going to college? But we didn't go to college together. I didn't go to college. It seemed very inorganic, but that was the only reason, really."

He went on to say that he didn't even feel he could still write a movie about high-schoolers anymore.

He continued: "And also, I don't know how I would write a movie about high school kids now, or around that age.

"Even the small, the girls, the sorority girls in [Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising], it was very hard to write their characters.

"We have to talk to them a lot about what they would do and say in the situations that we had presented."

Meanwhile, star Cera has previously said he wouldn't be tempted to sign up to a second movie, even if there were plans.

Speaking to Bustle a few years back, he said: "I think it would just be sad at this point.

"It would be doing the same characters but ten years later. Everyone would be like, 'Oh man, I liked it when they were young and bushy-tailed'.

"Sometimes if you wait too long, it's not so sweet anymore. To me it's such a nicely wrapped up story. I think it's a stand-alone movie."
