‘How I Met Your Mother’ Star Confirms Role in Cop Comedy
HollywoodNews.com: “How I Met Your Mother” star Jason Segel confirmed his next leading film role today, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Segel, a writer-actor known for his role as lovable goof-ball lawyer Marshall Eriksen on CBS’ hit romance sitcom, is set to star in Undercover Cop, a period comedy produced by DreamWorks Studios and Oscar-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian’s production company, Film Rites.
Although DreamWorks has yet to disclose the full plot, The Hollywood Reporter states the comedy inspired by the true story of a former cop. The film is set in 1980s New Jersey and centers around the state’s underground criminal world—a world that has been depicted in numerous onscreen mediums.
Aside from How I Met Your Mother, Segel can be seen on the big screen this June in the comedy Bad Teacher.
