Jason Segel get his due

Freaks and Geeks alums who have hit the big time:

- Shia LaBeouf
- Seth Rogen (Knocked Up and 40-Year Old Virgin)
- James Franco
- Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma and X-Men II)

and now, Jason Segel. Jason may be best known for his role as Nick Andopolis in the Judd Apatow TV series, Freaks and Geeks. These days he's playing a guy trying to get over his girlfriend in the comedy he wrote, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. If you've seen Jason in the other Apatow series, Undeclared, you know he excels as the well-meaning, overly invested boyfriend. Here is Jason in one of my favorite Undeclared scenes, where he drives to campus to kick Steven's butt. Watch here
