Jason Segel

“I’m not a gay pirate, I have sex with my parrot all the time!… OK, that came out wrong.” –
Marshall – How I Met Your Mother

Noteworthy

  • How I Met Your Mother –  I love this show. I don’t love the storyline but the characters more than make up for that. Segel plays Marshall the beau to Alyson Hannigan’s Lilly. Marshell is the oversized man-child in this series and he is perfect in that role.
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall – Who would have thought that Jason Segel getting over Kristen Bell would have been this funny.
  • The Muppets (2011) – The Muppet franchise was more or less dead and Jason Segel helped bring it back to life. Along with acting in this film, you add to his credits executive producer and writer. Great writing and this flick has just as many cameos as the original Muppet movie.
  • Sex Tape – This is a terrifying concept. The idea of making a sex tape, while very horrifying in and of itself, is surpassed by the thought of it going missing.

I would love to play a villain someday in that I think that what I’ve done with my whole career is walk this tightrope between charming and creepy, and I always fall on the charming side. I’d like to fall on the creepy side and be like one of those scary old men, like really charming villains.

Must See TV

Do you remember, back in the idea, the idea of Must See TV? This was a slogan created by NBC to convince viewers that the hour prior to Seinfeld in the 90s was comedy gold and that you had to watch it. Great advertising slogan and with the lineup of shows that they...
