It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Freak and Geeks and all of its satellites. Undeclared is next on my Netflix queue. Well, actually, Pineapple Express and Milk are next, but there is a long wait and a short wait for these, respectively, to which I say: Whoever is having the James Franco movie-fest, it’s my turn.

(Aside: James Franco is studing writing at Columbia as did a certain YA author albeit he is at the grad school and I she did it as an undergrad, and he just sold his first book of short stories. I hope it is better than Ethan Hawke’s jump into the word of fiction.)

Anyway, all of this is to say that last Monday Jason Segel was on Fresh Air on NPR. That night I had actually gone to the ER because I cut my finger making dinner, but the interview was so funny that I forgot my pain. I think Terry Gross had a little crush on him because she kept giggling.

Secrets of Truth & Beauty on the surface has very little in common with Judd Apatow films, but still I like to cast the movie with actors he commonly works with. Jason Segel would definitely be Sascha.
