In Science and Space: Despite of his long-established reputation of playing put-upon nice guys, Seth Rogen wants to make it clear: He does not want you to like him this time. He doesn’t even like him this time.

The gregarious, engaged producer and co-star of “Pam & Tommy” is enjoying his first Emmy nomination for acting. He was a driving force in the creation of the double-digit-nominated limited series springing from a Rolling Stone article by Amanda Chicago Lewis about Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s infamous sex tape made public.

“I think a lot of people feel like they have to like the people they are playing,” Rogen said. “Oh, God, I don’t at all. Like, I do not like him.”

“I assumed it was something they put out into the world. I assumed they were profiting from it,” Rogen said of the video that leaked in his pubescence. “I completely had it wrong, and, in fact, the understanding I had was incredibly destructive in a lot of ways, on many levels.”

The series portrays Gauthier as a struggling sad sack, still in love with his porn-actress ex-wife. He does some work for Lee and is understandably chagrined when the millionaire rocker not only refuses to pay, but threatens him with a firearm (per Gauthier’s account).

“You have to get why he thinks he’s right, but you could never think (he’s) right,” Rogen said. “Maybe he’s justified in some warped sense to exact some sort of vengeance or justice on Tommy, but the way he did it is the worst way imaginable.” Rogen came to set with an interpretation he’d honed for two years, of Gauthier as “calculating” and “hostile.”

“It was instantly invalidated in, like, one minute, basically,” Rogen said. “On the first day of shooting, Craig (Gillespie), the director, was like, ‘I think the less you do in some ways and the more kind of vacant he seems, the more you get.’ If you just look at what the person did, Rand, he’s not someone who really thought about his actions that much. He was never thinking two or three or four steps ahead. “It’s your instinct as an actor to make (characters) seem deep and layered. And as you get older, you meet a lot of people who are just not that deep and layered,” Rogen said. “Just not thinking that much. Instead, it’s like he’s a sad, hurt guy who’s acting very emotionally and not at all considering the ramifications of his actions.”
