We don’t usually report on celebrity relationships here at Flavorwire, but the news that Michelle Williams and Jason Segel are apparently now a couple is way too exciting not to share. Right? They’re both just so talented, and while we never would’ve put Nick Andopolis and Jen Lindley together in a million years,… Read More
We’re not sure why the news exclusively reported by Vulture earlier today that Jason Segel won’t be collaborating with his original co-writer Nicholas Stoller on the sequel to The Muppets makes us so sad. He’s got plenty of good reasons — his role on How I Met Your Mother; a few new movies… Read More
Hey, guess what: 2012 is like, four days away. Exciting, eh? Well, aside from that whole Mayan calendar/end of the world business. And that there’s going to be a Presidential campaign all damned year, and the economy’s still in the toilet, and Community is on a “hiatus”… On second thought, 2012 is already looking pretty terrible, and it hasn’t even started yet.

Finally — an episode of Saturday Night Live that we genuinely liked as a whole! Of course, Jason Segel is one of our favorite actors right now, so we we pre-disposed to like the show this week, but even objectively, we think it was one of the best of the season. Segel’s lovably genuine silliness fit in well with the cast, but for our money he also pulled off angry prostitute pretty well. And while some sketches were less than stellar, there were none that were unbearably terrible, which is fairly unusual, at least for this season. Click through to watch our picks for the best and worst sketches of the night, and let us know if you agree or completely disagree with our assessments in the comments! … Read More
Today at Flavorpill, we enjoyed BuzzFeed’s thoughtful analysis of 26 years of People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” We loved this new anti-bullying PSA by the talented filmmakers over at Everynone.
