Actor Jason Segel — best known as the star of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “How I Met Your Mother” — opened up on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast this week about growing up half-Jewish and complete outsider.
Watching a movie about David Foster Wallace is inherently ironic. But Anne Cohen writes that it’s worth putting that aside to enjoy a surprisingly good film, which celebrates the author’s work.
No, the late great writer David Foster Wallace was not Jewish – but the first actor to portray him onscreen is. ‘The End of the Tour,’ starring Jason Segel, has made its Sundance debut.
Hollywood scion Jake Kasdan is following up ‘Bad Teacher’ with ‘Sex Tape,’ starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. Curt Schleier gets to the, umm, bottom of it and Kasdan’s Jewish upbringing.
Jason Segel will star in ‘The Great Maple Syrup Caper,’ a sweet (get it?!) comedy about the bizarre theft of millions of dollars worth of sugary goodness from a Quebec facility.
Jason Segel is a guy who looks ahead and thinks big. While complimenting his current co-star Emily Blunt (“The Five Year Engagement”) in an interview with Us Weekly back in March, he mentioned that he’d ultimately like the chance to appear on the big screen together with another special gal.
Jason Segel has been very into sharing lately. He’s a sensitive and communicative guy, but it might also have to do with generating publicity for his new movie, “The Five-Year Engagement.” The film, which Segel, 32, co-wrote with director Nicholas Stoller, tells the story of an interfaith couple (he’s Jewish, she’s Christian) whose wedding plans keep getting delayed. Segel plays the male lead, and Emily Blunt, 29, plays his fiancée.
