Jason Segel George Clooney

There's a new George Clooney in town. Move over, silver fox: Jason Segel is the now the guy with the golden ticket.

The "How I Met Your Mother" actor humbly told Vanity Fair that, besides a few minor qualities, he and Clooney are one and the same.

"With the exception that he’s way better looking and way more talented than me, I'm the new Clooney," Segel joked.

But Segel may be on to something.

Just as Clooney boasts an impressive list of exes, Segel has been linked to beauties like Michelle Trachtenberg and Chloe Sevigny. Segel's 2011 box-office baby, "The Muppets," has earned a whopping $87 million since its November release, while Clooney's similarly timed Oscar darling, "The Descendants," has earned (only!) $71 million.

But tipping the "Hollywood's handsomest" scale in Segel's favor, the funny man's self-deprecating charm wins us over every time.
