In Jeff, Who Lives at Home, the latest film from the Duplass brothers (the filmmakers behind The Puffy Chair and Cyrus), Jason Segel stars as Jeff, a philosophizing stoner who (quite literally) lives at home in his mother's (Susan Sarandon) basement. Jeff is constantly looking for signs from the universe, and on one particular day, he bumps into his brother (Ed Helms), who has a very different outlook on life. In a series of unexpected and unfortunate events, the two try their best to make sense of what's happening all around them.
Segel is playing his standard lovable goofball role, but in this case he's got such a strong, and perhaps warped, sense of self-awareness that it's debilitating. We're curious as to how he'll tackle this somewhat darker role. The ladies in the supporting cast, Judy Greer and Sarandon, are also amazing and taking on similarly heartfelt roles, so we can't wait to see where the Duplass brothers go with this one.
