In Search Of... Jeff


Tell me, Mr. Segel, how do I get out of here?

As pictured above, Jason Segel IS Jeff, Who Lives At Home, the latest from Jay and Mark Duplass. Here, our hero, big of heart and head out of focus, stalks the meaning of life through a convenience store, which is a lot simpler and more complicated than it sounds.

Besides being quite funny, in Jeff the Duplass Bros. get their pop-philosophizing on like lo-fi Wachowskis. In that vein, I have plenty more to say about the picture, its relationship with your favorite whipping boy and mine, M. Night Shyamalan, and sundry other topics. It all goes down over at the fine PressPlay blog.
