Jason Segel has the CRAZY EYES

In all of my Apatow-fest viewings, I have taken a shining to two of his fetish-actors (Do we use that phrase in English? Where did I get that phrase from???). The first is Martin Starr, whose comic timing and delivery is HUGE and SPECTACULAR in a very understated way as Bill Haverchuck in Freaks and Geeks (but he's also very good at the sad, hurt parts as well). He also appears as Martin (the guy with the beard) in Knocked Up and as a visiting high school friend of Steven's in Undeclared.

These clips are both from Freaks and Geeks:

The other person I've enjoyed watching is Jason Segel, who played Lindsay's would-be boyfriend Nick in Freaks and Geeks, Lizzie's on-and-off boyfriend Eric in Undeclared, Debbie's would-be paramour Jason in Knocked Up and Lily's on-and-off boyfriend/fiancé/husband in the non-Apatow TV show How I Met Your Mother. The characters are fairly different but the theme is the same: Jason Segel really really wants a girlfriend and will stalk a girl to the ends of the earth if that's what it takes to get her. Which is really hilarious if you're not the one being stalked!

Here is the GREATEST SONG IN HISTORY (also from Freaks and Geeks):

This clip from Undeclared makes Eric look scary, although he's actually more of a weepy, schmoopy, jealous buffoon:

And he really, really likes brunch.

Aw, I adore Jason! I want to smush his cheeks and buy him a beer. I bet he'd be a hilarious drunk.

The gym teacher and I appear to have very similar phones.

I can't decide which is more awesome. Jason Segel running, or Jason Segel leaping over that guy.

When will an all-musical episode of HIMYM be made? IT MUST BE MADE. I love Jason Segel AND Neil Patrick Harris.
