Jason Segel and Ed Helms, together at last

Jason-Sege-Ed-HelmsImage Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR Photos File under “two great tastes that taste great together”: Jason Segel and Ed Helms are set to co-star in an upcoming stoner comedy. Adding to my joy, Jeff Who Lives At Home is from writing/directing brothers Mark and Jay Duplass of The Puffy Chair and Baghead. (Mark also stars in the The League and was half the bromantic duo in Humpday.) My cup runneth over.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the pic chronicles a day in the life of two brothers, one a loser (Segel) who lives at home and the other (Helms) more together but overbearing.” So… no one’s playing against type. Judy Greer, who should totally be a bigger star, is “in talks” to play Helms’ wife.

The Duplass’s films are very talky and low-key, and Helms and Segel, while fantastic, tend to play big, shouty, and ostentatiously goofy (Segel) or dorky (Helms) characters. I’m curious to see them scale back their broad styles for more of a lived-in, realistic vibe. And please oh please let there be some kind of musical number.

Are you excited for this comedy powerhouse, PopWatchers?

    I’ve been in love with Jason Segel for several years now, so anytime he is involved in something, I will see it. Ed Helms and Judy Greer are icing on the cake.

    “Judy Greer, who should totally be a bigger star”

    SO TRUE.

    It’s a HIMYM/Office/Arrested Development crossover movie! I just need Jason Segel to be a bigger star (or not, because I love him on HIMYM).

    This, unfortunately, is gonna be another I Love You, Man dilemma for me…I fell in love with Jason Segel back when FSM came out (I know, I’m super late to the party) but I’ve loved Paul Rudd since Clueless…this is going to be another situation where I need to decide whose face I’ll fawn over when they’re both on screen…and that’s perfectly alright with me :)
