The cast of How I Met Your Mother has known how the series was going to end since the show's beginning back in 2005.

Producers revealed the end of the story to stars Josh Radnor and Lyndsy Fonseca, who play star Josh Radnor's children on the series, when scenes for the end of the series were shot at the beginning in order to ensure that the series came full circle.

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a married couple looking to spice things up with their love life by getting the camera out and taping themselves getting it on in Sex Tape.

But when Jay forgets to erase the tape and it automatically uploads the video to his cloud, the couple has to scramble to make sure no one they know sees it.

Diaz is clearly the hottest thing in this trailer, wearing a pair of rollerskate and a tiny white t-shirt with red panties, and looking more like 31 than 41. The trailer also gives a brief glimpse of the couple sitting nude on a couch together, but that's as far ...

Top 5 Things You Need to Know Going Into Season 9 Of 'How I Met Your Mother'

September 22nd, 2013 3:00pm EDT
How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother is returning this Monday for its ninth and final season.  I'm pretty sure it's for real this time.  You may remember that season eight was reportedly going to be the final season, but since ratings were at all time highs, CBS went into negotiations with show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to do another season.  All of the actors' contracts were up at the end of season 8, and it appeared that Jason Segel, who said he wanted to focus on his movie career, was the biggest roadblock.  As soon as Segel signed on, everything else fell into place.  Whether you've missed...

How I Met Your Mother
'How I Met Your Mother' returned last night after a short hiatus due to the NCAA tournament.  It came back with a quick shocker.  The Captain calls Lily and tells her that he is moving to Rome for a year and that he wants her to come with him.  Lily took the job as the Captain’s art consultant a few weeks ago.  She is immediately torn.  When she calls Marshall to talk about it, he talks about how he is swamped at work.  She decides that she can’t rip Marshall away from his dream job and turns down the Captain’s offer.

Meanwhile, Ted and Barney are at the bar.  Barney was just about to leav...

Jason Segel
Actor Jason Segel is adding author to his resume after turning an old film script into a new book series for young adults.

The Muppets star reveals he came up with the story when he was 21 and sold the plotline for "super cheap" as an aspiring actor, but he recently tracked down the material and bought back the rights - and he has since decided to rework it into a collection of novels.

He says, "As I got more successful I kept hoping they (film developers) wouldn't realize I was the same Jason Segel as the Jason Segel they bought the script from (before he became famous)."

Joe Manganiello Causes 'Twelve Horny Women' On 'HIMYM'

November 27th, 2012 3:26pm EST
Twelve Horny Women
'How I Met Your Mother' returned last night continuing the story arc from last week. You’ll remember that Marshall ran into his old law school buddy Brad, played by Joe Mananiello. Brad conned Marshall into thinking he needed a job when all he really wanted to do was steal Marshall’s firm’s strategy for the upcoming case where Brad was defending a pharmaceutical company. Marshall’s boss tells him to win the case or he’s fired.

In traditional HIMYM fashion, the story is being told by someone at a later point in time, but this time it is Marshall. We find Marshall telling the story of th...

Jason Segel and Michelle Williams have taken their relationship to the next level after reportedly moving in together in New York.

'How I Met Your Mother': Who Wants To Be A Godfather?

With Marshall and Lily in new parent mode, the gang had been a little out of sync lately. They had instructed the others to not bother them with anything that wasn’t “an 8 out of 10 or higher.” So when Ted was having problems with Victoria and Robin was having problems with Nick, they decided to keep it to themselves.

When Marshall and Lily finally got some free time, they had a new view of the world as a scary and dangerous place. They decided that with Marvin to think about now, it was time to draft up a will. The answers to most questions came easy, but the biggest of all was who w...

How I Met Your Mother returned last night for the second episode of what is looking increasingly likely to be the final season of the show. Co-creator Craig Thomas told TV Guide, "We wanted the season premiere to feel momentous because this could be the beginning of the last chapter. There are negotiations happening, but I don't know how that's gonna go and I don't know when I'll know if there'll be a Season 9. Carter [Bays] and I are really writing the season as if it's the last season and this is how we would start it." Last week’s premiere gave us the big reveal that Ted would meet hi...

'How I Met Your Mother' Season 8: 5 Spoilers You Need To Know

Cast of How I Met Your Mother
“How I Met Your Mother” is hands-down one of my favorite shows. I own all of the seasons on DVD, and still have about 35 episodes saved on DVR. So it pains me to say that season 7’s finale was a little underwhelming as we saw Barney prepare to marry Robin instead of the fabulous Quinn (played by the even more fabulous Becki Newton) and Ted (Josh Radnor) motor off into the sunset with The One Who Got Away, Victoria, on her wedding day. Nevertheless, Marshall and Lily finally brought little Marvin into the world, and the show seemed to be inching closer to revealing the elusive mother. Th...

Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack.

Review: 'The Five-Year Engagement' Just Not That Engaging

April 26th, 2012 7:19pm EDT
Five-Year Engagement
Unlike John, the other half of the 'Two Jews On Film, it doesn't take a lot for me to enjoy a film. Basically, I want to care about the characters and their story. And this brings me to my problem with 'The Five Year Engagement', directed by Nicholas Stoller ('Get Him To The Greek') I just didn't care.

Not only didn't I care about the two lead characters, Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt) but they really, really annoyed me.

The film starts out promising. Tom, an up and coming chef in San Francisco proposes rather romantically to his British girlfriend Violet. She happily accepts...

The funnyman admits he lost 35 pounds as he prepared to play the British actress' fiance - and a trainer/nutritionist was hired to monitor his calorie intake on the set.

Segel says, "I was told that it had to be conceivable that Emily Blunt would ever choose me to be her husband... They (producers) sent a trainer to the set and I had to work out twice a day and then he would watch me eat all day."
