Jason Segel is 35 today. It’s been over 15 years since he played Nick Andopolis alongside Linda Cardellini, James Franco, and Seth Rogen on Freaks and Geeks, and Segel has come a long way since his high school basketball state champion days (when he was known as “Dr. Dunk”). He went from being just a kid with a pair of drum sticks to one of Hollywood’s most lovable comedians, and these photos prove that he’s never stopped being a goof.

If these vintage NBC promotional photos aren’t enough to make you believe Segel — and Franco, pre-creepy Instagram days — has always been a lighthearted goon, watch him talk and rap about The Muppets with co-star Amy Adams.
