Interesting Rolling Stone article on Freaks, Geeks, and Paul Rudd in the Judd Apatow universe. It's an interesting tour of what's happened with everyone since then.

Last month, Chevy Chase was tapped for the NBC comedy pilot, Community.
The Sony-produced "Community," which is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, is described as "Stripes" at a community college. It centers on Jeff (Joel McHale), a lawyer who is back in school after his college degree is deemed invalid.

Chase will play another student at the community college who has been married five times.
What does Judd Apatow keep in his office?

Seth Rogen admited that filming Funny People was a challenge.
"We all had to do stand-up comedy, and we filmed all the performances like live comedy performances," he explains.

"So all the actors would go out, and do improvisation and theatre at the weekends where they would do comedy and kind of hone their acts and write a lot of their own material. It was a nightmare and I'm glad I never have to do it again."
This has to be a joke...
