Our special guest Jason Segel, who plays David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour, tells us what was scary about taking on the role, what it was like to attend the Oscars with The Muppets, and how the help of friends like Paul Rudd has raised the profile of this tiny— but Oscar-buzzy— indie film.
