    I thought it would be fun to talk about where the actors are now and who have worked together since Freaks and Geeks. This is the stuff i have seen, i didnt bother looking up stuff on IMDB.com or anything. If any1 wants to do that feels free.

    **Linda Cardellini (Lindsay) is now a nurse on ER
    **Jason Segel (Nick) is now on a sitcom called How I Met Your Mother. Samm Levine was on one episode waiting in a line outside a club. On another episode Martin Starr (Bill) was the date of one of the girls.
    **Seth Rogen was in The 40 Year Old Virgin which was directed or written by Paul Feig.
    **James Franco (Daniel)has been in a bunch of movies. Most receantly hes been in Tristan and Isolde(now in theatres) and in 2 weeks Annapolis. I read somewhere that he wrote a play that Martin Starr (Bill) was in but i dont know the details about that.

    I dont have the details on this, but Samm Levine is doing some Freaks & Geeks viewings at a public library somewhere in New Jeresy in February.

    I'd do anything to go. Only celebs I ever met were Burt Reynolds and Beverly Mahood.

    *Linda Cardellini is in "Grandma's Boy". I didn't see it because it's rated R, but I saw that she was in it in the paper.

    Kitchen Confidential...um...little bit of "Six Degrees", but with four degrees...Jason Segel plays Marshall in "How I Met Your Mother" which also has Alyson Hannigan who was in "BtVS" with Nicholas Brendon who was in Kitchen Confidential with...John Francis Daily! I guess for more degrees I could have gone as far as Martin Starr or Samm Levine

    Seth Rogen (Ken) will also be appearing in Knocked Up alongside Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl.

    Linda Cardellini was supposed to be in the TV miniseries Comanche Moon, but I don't know what happened with that.

    "Kim" was in "White Chicks" (i've seen her in a bunch of others but that's the only one I can remember off the top of my head)

    James Franco is in Spider man 3.

    Samm Levine made a lot of guess star in tv shows like HIMYM, Veronica Mars, Entourage...

    About the movie Knocked up, it has Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and Martin Starr to it's credit.

    Really?  That sounds interesting. The cast members and crew of Freaks and Geeks never seem to be too far apart from each other, in term of work, even now, no?
    I haven't seen it, but someone told me that they had spotted Martin Starr (Bill) in a small role in the film "Kicking and Screaming".

    It wouldn't surprise me, Judd Apatow produced it.

    Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Judd Apatow are all working together on "Pineapple Express".

    Pineapple Express is, first, written by Seth Rogen so that explains a bit why there are many of his friends on set. What I've heard of it so far (because it is filming right now or will start soon), it's about friends who get mixed up in a drug gang.

    Oh and I don't know if anyone has mentionned it before but Seth will be in the movie Superbad this year too. He's gonna be in like 4 movies this year!

    That Sam guy when he was on HIMYM was in a line at 'Okay' in season one of the episode 'Okay awesome' i think episode 7. Okay is the name of a night club where most of the episode takes place.

    I would love to watch this show does anyone know where i can watch episodes or something?
