Pencil Paparazzi: Jason Segel, other famous people at Old Town

We’ve got another entry for our ever-expanding pencil paparazzi file. This one comes from a young woman named Nina Eggers, who just happened to be having drink at Ann Arbor’s Old Town Tavern, when a half dozen famous folks came in for drinks. Here’s her entry. Jason Segel, as you can see, was apparently carrying a large photo of Robocop.


In addition to Jason Segel, the group, which settled into the front window at Old Town, included such notables as “the guy who plays Jim on The Office,” and “a girl from Community and Scream 4.” According to the local press, they’re all in town shooting a film for Judd Apatow called The Five Year Engagement.

And, remember… If you see someone famous, don’t snap a photo. Sketch him on a napkin instead. Use lipstick and cigarette butts if you have to. It may not seem important to you, but it’s absolutely critical to those of us who have no lives. So, no matter how seemingly inconsequential you think it might be, please send it in. Lives of giant, wheezing couch potatoes could depend on it.

    I like this whole pencil paparazzi thing. I think it’s nice that the celebs aren’t getting mobbed by folks with cameras while they are here.

    I like how Jason Segel’s head is on his shoulder.

    I heard that they were all taking photos of each other, which I thought was odd. I think we just live in a paparazzi culture now. I would love to see a submission done at the bar, in lipstick, ash and beer.
