10. Jason Segel as Peter Bretter in Forgetting Sarah Marshall First of all, can we say full-frontal nudity? This guy has balls…no pun intended. His sexy TV star girlfriend (Kristen Bell) kicks him to the curb and he treks to Hawaii to mend his heart only to run into her and her new lover. He sticks it out, showing some courage and meets a new hottie along the way. Peter Bretter is a sensitive, loving fella who definitely won major points by the end of this film. Keep reading »
