Judd Apatow’s ‘Undeclared’: Meet the Cast

Judd Apatow’s ‘Undeclared’: Meet the Cast (photo)

Posted by on

Tonight on IFC we are bringing you the finest in Judd Apatow entertainment. Well, the finest after previously declared, at 11 p.m. ET we are showing Undeclared, Apatow’s brilliant yet brutal look at the college years.

The series opens on the first day of school at the University of North Eastern California. Steven Karp finds himself bunking down with Charlie Hunnam, Seth Rogen, Timm Sharp, and, well, his dad. Filled with gawky characters, quick wits, and uncomfortable moments, It feels like a natural successor to Freaks and Geeks, even if it is set in the early 2000s in California and not the 80s in Michigan. The show is funny, biting, and cringe-worthy, but ultimately fun to watch, so long as you can stomach reliving your awkward college days. Beer pong!

As with any great show, it really works because of the talented cast. The stars of Undeclared have gone on to brilliant careers that eclipse their early college daze. But that’s true for most people anyway.

Meet the Cast of ‘Undeclared’

Jay Baruchel is Steven Karp, college freshman. Our hero. Since Undeclared left the air, he has struggled to find a break out role. But he makes a living having parts in Tropic Thunder, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist , The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up.

Carla Gallo is Lizzie Exley, the college hottie. You may recognize her from roles in such hit television shows as Carnivale, House (it wasn’t lupus), Californication, Mad Men and, well, Bones.

Steven’s sexy British theater major roommate, Lloyd, is played by Charlie Hunnam. Charlie is now almost unrecognizable as motorcycle badass with a heart of (tarnished) gold, Jax Teller, in FX’s tv show Sons of Anarchy.

Under Judd Apatow’s guidance, Seth Rogen‘s post-Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared career has far out shone his role as Ron Garner, roommate extraordinaire. We’re talking Knocked Up, Superbad, Pineapple Express, Anchorman, and even the true pinnacle of success: The Simpsons.

Lizzie’s roommate Monica Keena hasn’t found the success of some of her Undeclared cohorts, but she did have to choose between her baby and her life on Private Practice, which is definitely something and did a stint on Entourage.

amy_poehler-undeclared.jpg
Yes, Amy Poehler was in Undeclared. She is the head R.A. with an eye for fresh(men) meat. If you don’t know who she is, you don’t watch nearly enough television.

timm-sharp-undeclared.jpg

Timm Sharp plays Marshall Nesbitt, the fourth man in Steve’s dorm room. He has gone on to a career in television that most notably includes the sitcom Til Death.

Loudon-wainwright-undeclared.jpg

When Steven goes to college, his dad, Loudon Wainwright III, goes with him. This is much more entertaining for everyone else than it is for Steven. Loudon Wainwright III is a wildly successful musician and the sire of wildly successful musicians Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright. Go download all of their stuff already!

jason-segel-undeclared.jpg

Jason Segel is Eric, Lizzie’s on-again off-again on-again off-again boyfriend. After Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, Segal went on to major success on both the small screen (as Marshall in How I Met Your Mother) and in the movies with Forgetting Sarah Marshall , Knocked Up, and I Love You, Man.

Undeclared starts tonight on IFC at 11 p.m. ET

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
