Jason Segel Appearance Confirmed for Judd Apatow's 'This is Forty'
Apparently some set photos from the Knocked Up spin-off starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann have been circling online showing Jason Segel, another cast member from the 2007 comedy, on the set at some point. However, we now have more official confirmation that Segel will actually appear in the film as Megan Fox has posted a photo on her Facebook page (via Collider) featuring the two stars along with Bridesmaids actor Chris O'Dowd in a pool. Tentatively titled This is Forty, the new comedy isn't exactly a sequel to Knocked Up as it follows Rudd and Mann's married characters as they come to terms with life over the hill.
Here's the photo of Jason Segel on set with Megan Fox and Chris O'Dowd:
Segel played one of Seth Rogen's friends in Apatow's 2007 pregnancy comedy, so here's hoping that Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Martin Starr also show up as well. Charlyne Yi is already returning as the awkward, quirky character Jodi, so this would be quite a fun reunion. Throwing O'Dowd, Fox, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham and Wyatt Russell into the mix just makes this comedy all the more enticing. Of course, we'll be waiting for awhile still as Universal isn't bringing the film to theaters until July 2012. In the meantime, stay up-to-date on all things Judd Apatow by following him on Twitter.
