”Hollywood’s New Heartbreak Kid” was quite a read. First, Jason Segel’s puppy-dog eyes popped up on the first page; then to my shock, he was totally nude on the following spread. To that I say, ”Bravo, Jason!” Way to show the world what you’re made of.
Jason Segel’s ‘goofy’ demeanor is what made him lovable on Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared.

No Couch Potato
Wow! After scoring so poorly on your ”Ultimate TV Quiz,” I was amazed at how little television I actually watch. Good for me.
Leona Lewis sounds like Mariah Carey — minus the vocal histrionics (”The Next Mariah?”). Simon Cowell is often right, and I hope Lewis has a long, successful career.
Off the ‘Mark
How sad that you noted the passing of Richard Widmark — who starred in countless grade-A films — with a cursory sentence in Monitor. Surely he deserved a special Legacy box, which you’ve given to much lesser lights before. I guess he lived too quiet and scandal-free a life, and was merely a consummate pro.
It was a pleasure to see that our store, the Princeton Record Exchange, was pictured in the music section. As the general manager there, I must say that while some music is available earlier online, the depth of selection, staff expertise, and ability to browse through the stacks make in-store shopping more pleasurable than downloading.
Hot for Teacher
I love your magazine. Thanks for featuring the clever, handsome, smart, and humble John Krasinski in Spotlight. If he were an English teacher in an alternate universe, then I’d love to be the quiet art teacher down the hall, trying to build up the courage to steal him away from the biology teacher (who’d be none other than Rashida Jones!).

In the TV quiz, two answers in a Beverly Hills, 90210 question were scrambled. Donna abused prescription drugs and David dabbled in crystal meth.
