What I like about Judd Apatow's projects ("Knocked Up," "Superbad") is the inherent sweetness in his films. This time, Apatow is a producer, and yes, it's raunchy, silly, but there's a gentle nature in the middle.
Lead actor Jason Segel wrote the film, and it's funny and yes, shocking!
Segel one-ups Will Ferrell in the nakedness department. His character's name, Peter, really says it all, four times!
I can't wait to meet him and the rest of the cast in Hawaii in 2 weeks! I'll keep y'all posted!

Be prepared to be attacked yet again by the killer tomatoes!
Creators of the web series "Ask a Ninja" are busy writing the adaptation of the 1978 cult flick! Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine will put their own spin on this fun film, with Nichols set to direct.
" 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!' is the masterwork of a generation," Nichols said. "We can only aspire to recapture that magic." No changes to the original plot have been revealed, but it still is expected to revolve around killer tomatoes.
Thank the tomato gods!
FYI, the original "Tomatoes" spawned the Fox Kids Network's "ATV" cartoon series and the feature sequel "Return of the Killer Tomatoes," which helped launch George Clooney's career. Not "E.R." mind you!

Judd Apatow is on a roll. After creating the wonderful "Knocked Up" and "Superbad" last year, he continues to be a comic force in Hollywood. Just look at his upcoming projects just this year alone:
# You Don't Mess with the Zohan (2008) (post-production) (writer)
# Pineapple Express (2008) (completed) (story)
# Step Brothers (2008) (post-production) (producer)
# Pineapple Express (2008) (completed) (producer)
# Drillbit Taylor (2008) (producer)
# Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) (producer)
Now, Apatow has just tapped a famous actor, along with Seth Rogen ("Knocked Up") and Leslie Mann (Apatow's wife, and the funny sister in "Knocked Up") to star in the next comedy he'll direct.
Apatow hasn't directed since "Knocked Up" so this is very exciting. So who is Apatow going to helm next? Read More...
