Jason Segel 'marshalls' Harvard Hasty Pudding pot

Actor Jason Segel, known for his film work in "The Muppets," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Knocked Up" as well as his TV stint as Marshall Eriksen in the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," was honored as the 2012 Hasty Pudding Man of the Year at Harvard’s New College Theatre on Friday, Feb. 3.

When he got to the roast he had to go on stage and do three things to receive his pudding pot:

!. Give a pregnant Katherine Heigl (well, it was a man in drag pretending to be his "Knocked Up" co-star) a bowl of BBQ sauce. Then he had to drink some of it, making a nod to one of his infamous tweets.

2. Marry Russell Brand and Doogie Howser impersonators. Then, a Katy Perry lookalike showed up on stage and left with Brand. Apparently, Segel is a Justice of the Peace off-screen.

3. Wear a Miss Piggy wig and an over-sized bra with muppets stuffed in it and sing Kermit's "The Rainbow Connection," in a frog's voice.

During the pre-roast interview, Segel was asked what he plans to do with his pot. He replied: "Stuff it in my sock or put in in my checked luggage, that's usually how I get it past airport security."

Julianne Moore and Jay Leno were roasted last year. Anne Hathaway and Justin Timberlake were honored in 2010. Renee Zellweger and James Franco were honored in 2009. Christopher Walken and Charlize Theron were tapped as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Man and Woman of the Year in 2008.
