He's Jewish?

Jason Segel is photogenic. I'd rather gaze at a spread of him than Christian Bale most any day, and that's saying something. Jason's got a great interview in this month's issue Heeb, in which he talks about being the only Jewish kid at a Christian school:

“When I sent out my Bar Mitzvah invitations, the principal called me into his office. He said, ‘The kids are really excited about your party, but they don’t understand what it is.’ So at Communion, he made me give a talk explaining it. You’ve never been beat up harder than after saying, ‘On Saturday, I become a man.’”

Well worth the read, Jason takes it like a man in Heeb.
