Will Jason Segel Leave 'How I Met Your Mother' After Season 8?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick August 1, 2012 @ 11:45 AM
The longer any series carries on, the harder time it will have holding onto it lead stars, but could 'How I Met Your Mother' carry on without any one of its core five?  Recently, fans have had to ask that question as the CBS series enters preliminary talks to extend itself through a ninth season, following the upcoming eighth.  Surely not everyone will be up for an additional year unless the conditions are right, but what is star Jason Segel saying about the possibility?

'The Five-Year Engagement' Review

Y'know how popular comedies often get an "Extended Cut" on DVD? 'The Five-Year Engagement' skipped a step and released its extended cut straight to theaters. It's 124 minutes long, and at least 30 minutes too long. There's a good movie in here, maybe even a great one. But it's buried beneath an awful lot of shoulda-been-deleted scenes.

Awwww, Jason Segel is Not Doing 'Muppets 2'

When the sequel to 'The Muppets' was announced it was strange to hear that director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller were returning but Jason Segel - who seemed to will the film into production - had no involvement. There were thoughts that Segel might make a cameo or have a reduced role, but the actor has now squashed those rumors by announcing he won't have any part in the next film.

About a month ago, Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love publicly railed against the movie 'The Muppets,' saying Disney and the beloved puppets "raped" her late husband memory by remaking Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' for the film. And it seems she isn't finished having her say.
Her new target? The star and co-writer of 'The Muppets,' Jason Segel.

It looks like Jake Kasdan will be reuniting with his fellow 'Freaks and Geeks' alum Jason Segel for the film 'Sex Tape.' The Hollywood Reporter says that Kasdan is "in negotiations"* to direct with Segel attached to star. Reese Witherspoon was at one time interested in co-starring but now they are looking for a new female lead and may reunite Segel with one of his former co-stars...

'Jeff, Who Lives at Home' Review

I have a friend who works in the mental health field. One time he told me (quite possibly in violation of every ethical oath he's taken) about a divorced father who kidnapped his kid because he was convinced his ex-wife had been replaced by an alien. As he was working on the case he realized that the move to commit this man to an institution flew in the face of watching a lifetime of movies. If it were Hollywood, the third act would reveal that he was right all along.
To my delight and surprise a similar bit of musing is one of the core concepts of Jay and Mark Duplass' remarkable 'Jeff, Who Lives At Home.'
