Here’s the first photo of Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace. His expression screams, “I don’t know what I’m doing here or why I agreed to do it,” which sums up the voice of Wallace’s non-fiction work quite nicely.

“Most of the writers I know are weird hybrids. There’s a strong streak of egomania coupled with extreme shyness. Writing’s kind of like exhibitionism in private. And there’s also a strange loneliness, and a desire to have some kind of conversation with people, but not a real great ability to do it in person.” David Foster Wallace
