Hollywood celeb Jason Segel, who was noticed filming a film in Eureka not 4 months in the past, gave Humboldt County a short shoutout on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert yesterday.
Whereas selling one other non-Humboldt film (boooring!), Segel mentions what he’s been as much as through the pandemic (1:40).
“There was that lull in the middle where we though maybe things were calming down and I went and shot a movie in Humboldt County in Northern California in the redwoods,” he instructed Colbert. “It was very, very beautiful.”
That film, an adaptation of the 2010 younger grownup novel The Sky is All over the place, remains to be in post-production, in line with IMDB. So perhaps Segel will speak extra about Humboldt nearer to the film’s launch.
Later within the interview, although, Colbert brings up the redwoods once more and asks Segel about Humboldt’s “Sasquatchies.” (2:48)
“There’s a whole town devoted to that by the way, up there,” Segel says, probably referring to Willow Creek. “Sasquatch is there, according to them.”
Colbert responded by referencing a Sasquatch report he did for the Day by day Present in 1999. However that was filmed in King County, Washington. Nowhere close to Humboldt, Stephen.
