T.G.I.F.

Both men were born on a Friday! Lee J. Cobb was born Friday, December 8, 1911, and Jason Segel was born Friday, January 18, 1980. Jewish Ancestry

Both of Lee J. Cobb’s parents were Jewish, and Jason Segel’s father is Jewish. Música, Maestro! As a youth, Cobb spent his time studying the violin in hopes of becoming a symphony-quality musician, but his dream was cut short due to a wrist injury. As for Segel, he can play the piano. You can check out his talent in the film Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), where he sings “Peter You Suck” while playing the piano. (Perhaps not the most classical choice of song, but just go with it.) How do you think they would sound as a duo?
