Sex Tape
The last time we saw Jason Segel naked, he was being dumped in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but in "Sex Tape," he's getting down and dirty with Cameron Diaz. And he's even looking a bit fitter doing it. "I took heat for 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' where I was completely nude. But different characters require different body types," he told US Weekly about dropping weight for the movie. "It is R-rated, and I'm not in shape for no reason."

The End Of The Tour Jason Segel Jesse Eisenberg set photo
Somewhere beyond the grave, David Foster Wallace is writing a great essay with extensive footnotes about the fact that Jason Segel will be playing him in a movie. Yep, the late Pulitzer Prize finalist will be portrayed by the guy who got his dick out and wrote a puppet musical in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." It's kinda poetic, in a strange way.

First Look: Jason Segel & Cameron Diaz In 'Sex Tape'

Sex Tape
This summer the "Bad Teacher" team of director Jake Kasdan and stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are back, but this time for something a bit hotter under the collar. It's "Sex Tape," and you probably don't even need to ask what it's about. Read More »

David Foster Wallace Jesse Eisenberg Jason Segel James Ponsoldt
Of his upcoming biopic, “Hillary,” James Ponsoldt recently told us it “has nothing to do with celebrity of the character…that story is not a cradle-to-the-grave biopic, it’s sort of looking into a keyhole of a very specific period of her life." The “Spectacular Now” director is currently selecting the right young Hillary Clinton to match those points, but in the meantime Ponsoldt has emerged with another surprising biopic with a fixed-timeframe, and it already has quite the intriguing cast assembled.

Way back when in 2010, we revealed that Seth Rogen was planning a flick called “Sausage Party,” (then called "Sausage Fest") and while that sounds like the kind of thing Seth Rogen just says, it has become clear that “Sausage Party” was more than an idle fancy over the past couple of years. It has a concept—it's an R-rated animated movie about a talking sausage who, with his other supermarket produce buddies, has to get back onto the shelves before Independence Day's BBQs hit—and it has actors—the voices of Rogen, frequent collaborator Jonah Hill and long-time voice actor Conrad Vernon. What it didn't have was the funding to give it the go-ahead...

It just doesn’t seem to be going right for Jonathan Demme recently. He had been working on an adaptation of Stephen King’s “11/22/63” alongside the author, but that fell apart last December with King and Demme unable to agree on the correct direction for the film to take (it's now being developed for TV). Now another one of Demme’s projects seems to have fallen by the wayside, and that’s the Heather McGowan (“Tadpole”) scripted “Old Fires.”

While its 135-minute running time may have made it too long for some viewers, once again Judd Apatow reminds us just how much longer “This Is 40” could’ve been. He’s already graced us with four other deleted scenes, which range from topics like the Kardashians to Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s death metal side project. Here, we get to see a bit more from Megan Fox, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd’s characters from the movie.

While Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl won't be back for Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spin-off "This Is 40," one person who was revealed to be returning as far back as the summer of 2011 was Jason Segel. And once again, he's back and still obsessed with Leslie Mann.

Jason Segel and music, are like peanut butter and chocolate. The actor rarely heads into a project that doesn't have him contributing at least a bit of musical flavor, whether it's slappin' de bass with Paul Rudd while listening to Rush in "I Love You Man," creating a vampire puppet theater show in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," trying to live his dream as the drummer of Dimension in "Freaks And Geeks" or just going all-out with the Muppets in "The Muppets." But now, he's going to put a safety pin through his ear and spike that hair up.

Sitcoms are a notoriously tricky beast to handle in terms of success, simply because if a show grows enormously in popularity and critical regard, so will the cast members who feature prominently in it, therefore leading to tempting offers for them from higher-profile projects. “How I Met Your Mother” is a sterling example of such a conflict, with a breakout cast including Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, and Josh Radnor, who have established major careers outside of the show, but nevertheless CBS are still confidently pushing for a new season.
