We all know and love him from How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You Man and The Muppets- just to name a few. Funnyman Jason Segel has also written music and screenplays and produced for the big screens. Now we’ll love him for one more thing; BOOKS!
Earlier this month, Segel disclosed that he had written a trilogy for young readers. It’s foundation was from a script he had written when he was 21, which was revealed during a Q&A after the screening of Forgetting Sarah Marshall in New York.
Random House announced this week that they will publish Segel’s trilogy of books called ‘Nightmares‘ which is targeted towards middle schoolers. ‘Nightmares‘ is a story about kids who have to save their town from fear which is in the form of nightmare creatures. The first book is slated for a Fall 2014 release.
Also look out for his upcoming movie This Is The End, which stars James Franco, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and of course Jason Segel.
