"It was less about siding with people and more about the real dynamic of a relationship at the breaking point," says Bell."It was great to play the comedy of her being a little bitchy or ditsy, but she's also allowed to show her human side and say it's nobody's fault.Segel traces the roots of this comic persona to a piece of direction Apatow gave him for "Freaks" when Nick serenaded his crush Lindsay (Linda Cardellini) with the cheesy Styx ballad "Lady." Recalls Segel, "He came up beforehand and said, 'It has to be really embarrassing but really sweet, really genuine and really funny.' And I just figured that's what my life is like in general, so I would just be as honest as I could."Segel dated Cardellini for a few years after "Freaks." Does he think people might assume Bell's philandering girlfriend role is based on his ex? "I was still very much a child [then], and this was more an amalgamation of a lot of different relationships and breakups I've had.

"Judd said, 'I've written this for you.' I could not have been more excited. Segel believes it's been Apatow's mission to prove to everyone that the "Freaks" cast deserved better than first-season cancellation.

"We were on a plane, Judd and I, and he leaned back and let out a deliberate exhale, like you could tell a joke was about to come. Now I can sleep.' "Although "Sarah" may be Segel's exorcising of certain relationship demons, the irony is it comes at a time when he's too busy to be any girl's devoted paramour.

MUCH like the hero of the new comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" -- who is merrily undressed at home and expecting an entirely different purpose for his girlfriend's visit than her dumping him -- actor-screenwriter Jason Segel endured his own Naked Breakup.

But there is a key difference between what Segel's state of mind was when it happened to him and that of his movie character, who is too despondent to even pull on a pair of jeans as he gets the news.

However, upon seeing Brand's audition, Segel changed the role entirely to fit him.
