1. Segel’s Love Life Takes Flight
Jason Segel has a new love story unfolding, and it has nothing to do with his new movie, The Five-Year Engagement. The Jewish actor and writer was openly cuddling and kissing his new love interest, Michelle Williams, at the film’s premiere Wednesday night.
Segel co-wrote The Five-Year Engagement, a film about an engaged couple who keep delaying their wedding. He jokingly told People magazine about his own grand plans for getting engaged to whoever the lucky lady will be, whenever that time may come. “My plan is to get her to marry me as quickly as possible before she finds out who I really am,” he said with a laugh. “I’ll do it romantic, but I’ll do it like over a three-day weekend. We’ll meet on Friday, have our first date on Saturday, engaged on Sunday and married on Monday.”
There’s no dancing around this subject, Gavin DeGraw is out on Dancing With The Stars! DeGraw was sent home for a flopped samba on Tuesday night. The singer, whose mother is of Russian-Jewish ancestry, received the lowest score of all the competitors on Monday, a 19 out of 30 points.
DeGraw ended the show by saying he was grateful for the opportunity. He updated his Twitter status on Thursday to say he was, “overwhelmed by the support of my fans, @karina smirnoff and everyone @dancingabc. Thank you for having my back through this journey. #dwts.”
Jake Gyllenhaal will make his American stage debut this summer in If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, an Off-Broadway production. The 31-year-old actor, whose mother is Jewish, will play the uncle of a bullied teenaged girl in the comedy-drama.
We’re guessing there will be a lot of females in the audience when If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet opens this summer. In an online poll last February, JDate members were asked, “Which Jewish bachelor would you like to walk you down the red carpet?” Gyllenhaal came out on top with 41% of the vote!
