Between “Freaks & Geeks” and “Undeclared,” Judd Apatow launched the careers of Riley Smith, Natasha Melnick, and Jerry Messing. More notably, he also launched the careers of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, John Francis Daley, Martin Starr, Samm Levine, Ben Foster, Busy Phillips, Jay Baruchel, Carla Gallo, and Charlie Hunnam. Now, all those dudes are going to be reunited onstage for PaleyFest 2011.
“The Walking Dead” will also be honored at this year’s festival. But fans of quality television should be most excited about the “Freaks & Geeks” reunion. This historic event marks the first time the cast has been reunited since Judd Apatow‘s last project. (THR)
