First Look: Jason Segel in Duplass Brothers 'Jeff, Who Lives at Home'
Now that the first half of the line-up for this year's Toronto Film Festival has been unveiled, we can start to get our first look at what the fall film season is going to be like. First up, I had to feature these two first look photos for the new Duplass Brothers (The Puffy Chair, Baghead, Cyrus) comedy Jeff, Who Lives at Home. The indie comedy stars Jason Segel as Jeff, and includes in the cast: Ed Helms, Judy Greer and Susan Sarandon. this is the story of one man searching for the meaning of life while running to the store to buy wood glue. Using the universe as his guide, Jeff looks for signs to help determine his path. Here is Jeff.
The photos come from the TIFF.net website, where you can also find a huge gallery of all the films in their 2011 line-up. When he leaves his house on a banal errand for his mother, Jeff discovers that the universe might be sending him messages about his destiny. This looks hilarious already and it's just a glimpse. I've been a fan of the Duplass Brothers for a while, ever since seeing Baghead at Sundance, and I'm happy to see them directing more wacky comedies like this. Paramount Pictures is distributing Jeff, Who Lives at Home, but hasn't set a release date yet. We'll keep you updated, as we will be up covering Toronto again this year.
