SAN DIEGO, July 25 (UPI) -- Actor Seth Rogen made the rounds of the San Diego Comic-Con convention, displaying the trimmed-down torso moviegoers will see in the upcoming "Green Hornet."

Rogen joked Friday when he took the stage at the convention, saying, "I am not Ryan Reynolds" -- the muscle-bound actor who plays the lead in the upcoming "Green Lantern" flick, not to be confused with Rogen's most recent project, USA Today reported.

Rogen told the audience he's not a workout junkie, preferring the writer's desk to the gym. Writing "is fun because you don't have to shave or lose the weight. But it is fun to see yourself in a movie. If I were to give you any advice, it's A: never do drugs. And B: that's (bull)," Rogen told the audience.

Rogen reassured the crowd's "Hornet" purists, who were somewhat taken aback by the humorous take on the character after viewing a trailer, by saying he turned down "tens of millions of dollars in marketing money" from car-makers hoping for a product-placement opportunity, instead opting to remain faithful to the character's original choice of a '67 Chrysler.

"Hornet," which opens in January 2011, costars Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz and Jay Chou, and is directed by Michel Gondry.
