Following up on the debut red band Sex Tape trailer, Sony has released a comparatively more chaste green band trailer. Still raunchy enough, given the premise centers on a married couple (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) who films a sex tape to spice up their love life. Their video is accidentally uploaded to "the cloud," which sends the couple through a series of hijinks to prevent everyone they know---their son, her boss, the mailman, Rob Corddry---from seeing the video. Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe co-star in director Jake Kasdan's follow-up to Bad Teacher. Sex Tape opens July 25. Check out the Sex Tape trailer after the jump for a few new jokes. Official synopsis: When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, »

After the debut of a raunchy red band trailer, we now get the Sex Tape trailer that is safe for everyone! Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz star in this R rated comedy about a married couple who decide to spice up their love life with an epic three hour love making session that is all caught on tape. Things turn ugly when the footage accidentally gets uploaded to the cloud, and will soon be available for their entire family and all of their friends to see. Watch as these two find new ways to invigorate their holy union as they go on a mad dash to stop what could be a very embarrassing incident for everyone.
Literary eyebrows were raised all over the place when we learned, late last year, that Jason Segel was set to play celebrated writer David Foster Wallace in James Ponsoldt's biopic “The End of the Tour," which will adapt journalist David Lipsky's account of accompanying Wallace on a book tour just as “Infinite Jest” was making him a strange kind of superstar (Jesse Eisenberg will play Lipsky). People had trouble imagining arch-slacker and Muppet-lover Segel embodying the depressive Wallace, though the physical resemblance in the first images from the set was pretty impressive.In fact, Segel is probably quite a brilliant choice: Wallace's writing is full of underappreciated humour, and Segel, himself an underappreciated performer, is undoubtedly able to walk the fine line between pot-smoking slacker and awkward neurotic that Wallace seems to have been. Nevertheless, Wallace's estate announced yesterday that it disagrees, and indeed thinks the whole film is a bad idea, »

Meg Ryan has joined the cast of CBS' upcoming sitcom "How I Met Your Dad," EW reports. She'll provide the show's first-person narration, just like Bob Saget did on "How I Met Your Mother."

According to the family of David Foster Wallace, the upcoming biopic of the late author is "not consider[ed] ... an homage," and is not, in fact, at all supported by anyone who knew Wallace.
A statement issued by Wallace's estate says that filmmakers behind "The End of the Tour" -- which stars Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as David Lipsky, the journalist on whose book the film is based -- did not request or receive permission for the project, and as such, the estate is distancing itself from the film.
"The David Foster Wallace Literary Trust, David's family, and David's longtime publisher Little, Brown and Company wish to make it clear that they have no connection with, and neither endorse nor support 'The End of the Tour,'" the statement said. "This motion picture is loosely based on transcripts from an interview David consented to eighteen years ago for »

Filmmaker Nicholas Stoller set an incredibly high bar for himself by knocking it out of the park with his directorial debut feature Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The 2008 comedy offered a fantastic blend of incredibly funny, R-rated comedy and serious heart, refusing to shy away from that emotional aspects of Jason Segel’s lead character, which made the story that much more affecting—and funny. He followed that up with 2010’s rock star comedy Get Him to the Greek and 2012’s more dramatic The Five-Year Engagement, and in between he also co-wrote the scripts for The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted. But now for his next directorial effort, Stoller ready to tackle an ambitious period piece. Steve recently sat down with Stoller to discuss his latest comedy, Neighbors, and during the course of their discussion Stoller talked about what he hopes will be his next project, a 1940s buddy cop comedy tentatively titled Black and White. »

Now that it's left our screens, Mark details what How I Met Your Mother did right...
This article contains major spoilers for How I Met Your Mother, especially the finale - if you're watching at E4 pace, you'll probably want to come back later in the year.
Last year, we made the case for CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother's geek credentials, and came to the conclusion that while the leads are all cool, good-looking people in that sitcom way, they also have geeky interests in common as they grow into their thirties together.
For people who don't watch the series, or have maybe seen an episode or a clip while channel-hopping past E4, this show is essentially Friends warmed up. Whenever you hear that comparison, it never seems to come across in a flattering way, but that's reductive to both Friends, »
Rob Lowe doesn't want you to focus on his good looks. The 50-year-old, whose second memoir, Love Life, is out on April 8, says in an interview with The New York Times Sunday Magazine that it's not easy being pretty. "There's this unbelievable bias and prejudice against quote-unquote good-looking people, that they can't be in pain or they can't have rough lives or be deep or interesting," he says. "They can't be any of the things that you long to play as an actor. I'm getting to play those parts now and loving it. When I was a teen idol, I »
