Segel traces the roots of this comic persona to a piece of direction Apatow gave him for "Freaks" when Nick serenaded his crush Lindsay (Linda Cardellini) with the cheesy Styx ballad "Lady." Recalls Segel, "He came up beforehand and said, 'It has to be really embarrassing but really sweet, really genuine and really funny.' And I just figured that's what my life is like in general, so I would just be as honest as I could."Segel dated Cardellini for a few years after "Freaks." Does he think people might assume Bell's philandering girlfriend role is based on his ex? "I was still very much a child [then], and this was more an amalgamation of a lot of different relationships and breakups I've had.People are bound to talk, but she was a great girlfriend."Bell, meanwhile, stresses that what impressed her about her costar's script was its acknowledgment of the complexities of romance."He wanted to date, but he did learn that down the road he does want something more stable and serious." Segel split from Williams a couple months ago after struggling with the long distance, as she is based in New York and he is based in Los Angeles, the source added.

' " By "this," the graduate of the golden Judd Apatow School of Comedic Training means turning his dating humiliation into fodder for a romantic-comedy-literate and raunch-attuned movie audience.
As heart-crushed TV music composer Peter Bretter, Segel wrings some cringe-worthy laughs out of a literally and figuratively naked romantic who flies to Hawaii to recuperate only to find his sexy TV actress ex (Kristen Bell) cavorting at the very same luxury resort with her new British rock star beau (Russell Brand)."I thought, disaster in paradise, a funny juxtaposition," says Segel, who gives his protagonist hope in the form of a cute, compassionate hotel employee (Mila Kunis), but not before subjecting him to several broken-guy gags that would make even Alan Alda tell him to man up: fetal position wailing, ill-timed confrontations, self-pitying piano playing.
On the other hand, actors sometimes feel as though they are "trapped" working on a regular series, whether because they are not fans of the material or because they feel that their role has changed from when they were originally cast or perhaps just because they prefer the freedom to do other work, like films (one of the most common reasons for actors leaving a popular television series is because they want to go make motion pictures instead).
