#Quote
1 [on his religion] My father is Jewish and my mother is Christian... but I was raised Jewish. So I'm at this [Christian] school and they really don't like me very much there. And then after Christian school I would walk in the afternoons to Hebrew school, and then at Hebrew school they would tell me that I wasn't really Jewish because my mother is Christian. So all of a sudden I'm like this young kid--I would have been happy to believe whatever--whoever would have been nice to me. You know? But it was this feeling of like not really belonging or not really fitting in... What occurred to me is this certainly isn't God. God doesn't want an 11- and 12-year-old kid to feel this way. You know? That my belief in God is that God wants you. You know? God wants you to believe in him, or it, whatever you would call it. And so, it actually helped me forge this feeling of, "Alright, you know what, kid, it's you and God, and it's you and the world." It gave me a bit of a feeling of solitude that I think came in handy during my out-of-work periods, where when I decided the only way I was going to make it was if I started writing. It was actually--I'm very grateful that I got that feeling at such a young age, because I felt like, "You know what, *you* better do it. It's gotta be you."
2 One thing that I think never goes out of style is just purity. Niceness and purity. And the Muppets have never lost that. Kermit especially is just wide-eyed wonder, unblinking. And he can't blink. Which I think probably helps.
3 [on the Muppets] They'e not puppets. We never use the word puppet because Kermit is a frog, Piggy is a pig. They exist in the world, like we do.
4 {On his full-frontal performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)] I drank a lot to get me through that. I remember just pacing up and down, drunk, with these voices in my head saying, "Jason, what are you doing?" I'm a little nervous, I won't get a date anymore, they won't be satisfied with what they saw.
5 When a woman does nudity in a movie, men immediately switch into a sexual mode. For women, from what I understand, it's not like that. They see a naked, out-of-shape man crying and it's funny -- something weird, disturbing and disgusting we can all laugh at.

#Trademark
1 Often plays nerdy and sensitive characters.
2 Towering height
3 Often sings in his performances
