PHOENIX -- If you saw an ad for a movies starring Ed Helms ("The Hangover") and Jason Segel ("How I Met Your Mother"), you'd probably think it was a comedy.

"Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is a comedy. It's also serious.

Both actors said they were looking for something different and "Jeff Who Lives at Home" offered just that.

"It's certainly not a broad comedy," Segel said. "The idea of getting to do a little bit of acting is really exciting to me."

Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer also star.

"Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is rated R. It opens Friday.
