Jason Segel is attached to star in a new movie about a real-life Canadian maple syrup heist, THR reports. The untitled comedy-drama is based on a story about the heist of $20 million worth of maple syrup from a Quebec warehouse that resulted in over 20 people being arrested. Seth Gordon (Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses) is directing the movie, and Chris Sheridan (Family Guy) is writing it. If you want to read about the real maple syrup heist that inspired the film, which I'm assuming is the only maple syrup heist ever, you can do that here.
Jason Segel revealed yesterday that he has written a series of three young adult novels and that he hopes to have the first one released later this year. Segel spoke about the books for the first time last night at a Forgetting Sarah Marshall screening and Q&A hosted by filmmaker Jonathan Demme in Pleasantville, New York. The book series, which is currently the subject of a bidding war between publishing houses, is based on Segel's first screenplay for a kids adventure movie, which he sold to a movie studio for "super cheap" when he was 21 because he "didn't know any better." Segel bought the script back from the [...]
Which show was better: Saved by the Bell or The Wire? Both were beloved while never winning a single Emmy award. Both were quintessential shows that redefined television with their honest depictions of drugs and class warfare. It's a tough, unfair question if you have seen both, but the question popped up in my brain thanks to "Twelve Horny Women." One of the members of the New York Judiciary Committee that Marshall faced that didn't appreciate his wonderful puns was played by none other than Dennis Haskins, Mr. Belding himself.
Jason Segel and writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) sold a pitch to Fox today for a new comedy movie based on the documentary The Other F Word, Deadline reports. The doc (trailer after the jump) follows a bunch of aging punk rock musicians as they transition into fatherhood while still trying to stay true to who they are (I'm assuming "the other f-word" in the title is "fatherhood" but I've been wrong before). Segel and Pearce's film will star Segel as one of these punk rock dads. Segel is an experienced musician himself, having composed music for his movies Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, [...]
Emma Watson, Jason Segel, and David Krumholtz are going to play themselves in Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg's End of the World, which used to be know as The Apocolypse and before that Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse. The three, along with the already announced crew of Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Aziz Ansari, are all guests at James Franco's house party when the apocalypse comes, which stinks because that means they aren't coming to my apocalypse party. The bright side is some of them are supposed to die, which I read to mean that ALL OF THEM WILL DIE but in a [...]
