Creative Captioning: Surprise! It's Jason Segel

By Liz Kelly

If it weren't for white hot James Franco, I would have totally crushed on Jason Segel in the sadly short-lived "Freaks and Geeks" -- he was a little nerdy, but how could you resist a character with so much enthusiasm for Rush's "Spirit of Radio" that he played out his Neil Pert fantasies on a make-shift basement stage?

And he's managed to build himself a respectable Hollywood career as an adult -- a member of Judd Apatow's inner circle who wrote and starred in last year's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" to respectable box office returns, a regular gig on CBS's "How I Met Your Mother." And, if that wasn't enough to ensure his celebrity, he's now rumored to be romancing perennial girlfriend Drew Barrymore.

But there's also Jason's creepy side. Like his total comfort with nudity (his man parts made their big screen debut in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and the fact that he really did come up with an entire Dracula puppet musical.

The photo below was taken yesterday at the Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica:

You know the drill. Come up with a chortle-worthy caption and you'll receive heaps of adoration from the entire Celebritology community. If yours is deemed the very best, you'll be named Official Celebritology Captionologist for the week of Jan. 5 - 9.
