Catching Up With... <em>Inglourious Basterds</em>' Samm Levine

It’s been a decade since Samm Levine played the bawdy, faux-suave king geek on Freaks and Geeks and permanently endeared himself to a certain segment of his generation. Since then he’s been a prolific actor on television, with guest parts on shows like Veronica Mars and Entourage, and he’s also broken into film work in genre and teen flicks (Pulse, Sydney White). This summer he has two high-profile movies ahead: The heavily promoted comedy I Love You Beth Cooper, from director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire), and Quentin Tarantino’s furious war epic Inglourious Basterds, which premiered last month at the Cannes Film Festival. Paste caught up with him shortly after the movie’s premiere at the fest.
