3 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Jason Segal is one of the most genuine people in show business, and he also makes very funny movies and TV shows.

After making his film debut in 1998 in “Can’t Hardly Wait,” Jason Segel got his first hit with “Freaks and Geeks,” the legendary one season series in 1999 that combined an amazing cast (James Franco, Seth Rogen) with memorable episodes. Segel has since done two other multi-season series, including “Undeclared” and “How I Met Your Mother.” At the same time, he was no slouch at the film box office, with a long list of hits starting with “Knocked Up,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “I Love You, Man.” He recently rebooted a major franchise with “The Muppets.” and scored with “The Five-Year Engagement. »

How I Met Your Mother wrapped up after nine seasons last May with a finale that left the majority of fans disappointed. In the DVD set, show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas show fans what could have been with the finale’s alternate ending.

'How I Met Your Mother' Alternate Ending

In How I Met Your Mother’s finale, it’s revealed that “The Mother” aka Tracy, played by Cristin Milioti, dies. Her death had been alluded two in a pair of previous episodes, though many had held out hope that the show had not been built around a character who was to die from the beginning of the narration.

Furthermore, Milioti made Tracy an incredibly likeable character, one who made perfect sense for Josh Radnor’s Ted. Not only having Tracy die, but having Ted and Robin reunite several years later was the second blow to »

Quiz: The Films of Jason Bateman

12 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s widely agreed that there is no shortage of comedic talent in the film industry today. With actors like Jason Segel, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Tina Fey, and Paul Rudd showing no sign of taking any time off from their day jobs, at any given time one can typically find at least one comedy featuring one of these popular leads in theatres.

Jason Bateman is one of the stand-out actors working today, building a solid reputation as one of the industry’s funniest leading men. He started acting in comedy at a young age, working in a number of television shows in the 80s and 90s. In 2003, he took on the role of Michael Bluth in a little show called "Arrested Development". This went on to become one of his most critically acclaimed performances, and the demand to bring the Bluths back was so high that another season was released on Netflix last year. »

Jimmy Fallon, Jason Segel, The Roots Play Family Feud With Steve Harvey

11 September 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jimmy Fallon gave the reins of his program over to Steve Harvey, and the result is the funniest 12 minutes of television I’ve seen in months. Harvey hosts a special Tonight Show edition of Family Feud with Jason Segel, Jimmy and Higgins of the Fallon family facing off against Questlove, Tarik and James of The Roots family. The game featured three rounds of questions, with survey answers provided by The Tonight Show’s studio audience. In the first round, the teams had to name other terms for marijuana; in the second, they had to list instruments that were least likely to get band members groupies; and in the third, they were asked to fill in a blank sentence. The expressions on Harvey’s face are priceless. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

Sex Tape Finds Much Needed Success In The U.K.

9 September 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite being fronted by such beloved comedy stars as Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, Sex Tape flopped at the domestic box office. But its reputation could well be saved thanks to some enthusiastic fans across the pond. THR reports Sex Tape is thriving in the United Kingdom. While the comedy opened without a bang in the Us last July, it has just hit in the U.K., and it's hitting hard. Box office tracker Rentrak estimates the Jason Segel/Cameron Diaz rom-com has pulled in $2.3 million in its UK debut, where it played on just 441 screens. That may not sound like an impressive number when compared to the fat figures that typically mark U.S. box office winners, but it's great news for the Sony comedy. The saucy Sex Tape has Diaz and Segel playing a married couple in desperate need of a jolt to their sex life. A wild »

Last night, Harvey brought all that magic to "The Tonight Show" with questions like "What's another name for marijuana?" Can Team Fallon — with guest star Jason Segel — win or will Team Questlove take home the glory? »
