Watch The Trailer For Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel’s ‘Sex Tape’

Hopefully this new movie from Jason Segel will soften the blow that was the How I Met Your Mother series finale. In Sex Tape he stars alongside Cameron Diaz and after the two make a sex tape (obviously) and lose it to the cloud, things go awry.

Diaz and Segel play a married couple who once shared a passionate romance but then lose it. To spice things up they decide to record themselves doing the deed. Instead of the footage being erased it syncs to the iPads they got their friends and family as gifts. First off, this is a …

Jason Segel Cast as David Foster Wallace in ‘The End of the Tour’ Biopic

Late literary genius David Foster Wallace is, well, a genius. The award-winning American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and professor is responsible for probably the most important novel in the past 20 years, Infinite Jest, if not longer than that. So when directors were looking to cast someone as Wallace for their upcoming film, they went with none other than… Jason Segel?

According to The Wrap, director James Ponsoldt (Smashed, The Spectacular Now) is in charge of the biopic, which is an adaptation of Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David

If You Want ‘SLC Punk 2′ You’re Going To Have To Fund It

What was once just talk has turned into reality. Just months after announcing plans to try and bring an SLC Punk sequel to life, creator James Merendino has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the film’s production.

Announced via press release (the most punk of all news delivery methods), the official crowdfunding campaign for SLC Punk 2: Punk’s Dead has 45 days to reach its goal of $250,000. Of course, since this is an Indiegogo account, if the film fails to raise its posted goal the creators will still have the option of keeping all funds donated. From the release:…

WATCH: The Muppets On SNL

Jason Segel was the celebrity host of Saturday Night Live this week and brought along his latest costars for the show.

Assisting in two skits, including the opening monologue, Segel was joined by the one and only Muppets. Songs, jokes, and on-the-nose humor as only The Muppets can do. You can view both sketches after the jump.

We have said it before and will say it a few more times before Wednesday, but The Muppets opens in theaters on November 23. If you are not already planning on going, cancel whatever you think is better and commit yourself to hanging …

[Another] MOVIE TRAILER: The Muppets

A new trailer for The Muppets has arrived online and you can view all the puppet-y fun right here on UTG!

We’ve seen a lot of adds for the upcoming return of The Muppets, but this is actually the first trailer to show anything related to the plot of the film. Apparently Amy Adams and Jason Segel, along with a muppet named Walter, travel from their home (we’re guessing the midwest) to Hollywood in search of the Muppets. Upon arriving, the trio realizes no one cares about The Muppets anymore and then (of course) decide to help them out. …

MOVIE REVIEW: Bad Teacher

“f there is one thing we are learning in Summer 2011, it is that Hollywood can turn anything into a bad idea. It used to be people dreaded sequels, now we dread superhero films (thanks Green Lantern!) and after this weekend, some may even be more cautious of raunchy comedy. “
