Jason Segel Returns to TV

Jason Segel Shrinking

Jason Segel Shrinking

Jason Segel, star of the long running hit TV sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” has returned to television with a new drama co-starring none other than Harrison Ford called “Shrinking.” And Segel is also hinting that he might appear on “How I Met Your Father,” the spinoff of his other TV show.

Jason Segel, 43, got his start on the short lived now classic TV show “Freaks and Geeks.” That show was made by Judd Apatow and co-starred a group of future stars like Seth Rogen and Busy Phillips. Then he spent nine years on “How I Met your Mother” which also starred Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders.

“Those people changed my life,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I would do anything they ever asked me to.”

After that show, and during its hit run too, Jason Segel starred in a few hit movies, mostly rom coms. And these movies co-starred the usual suspects like Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. Segel also co-starred opposite top Hollywood stars like Cameron Diaz in “Sex Tape” and “Bad Teacher” and both Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

Jason Segel also did the typical getting older comedies like “This is 40” from Freeks and Geeks creator Jud Apatow which co-starred Paul Rudd. And he and Ruud also starred opposite one another in “I Love You, Man.”

About his career to date, Jason Segel told the New York Times, “I’ve built up some currency, some goodwill. Like, ‘Oh, he’s a good guy; he wouldn’t do anything intentionally mean.’”

And the Covid crisis played a role in Jason Segel’s recent career choices. He told the Times, “What a crazy, sad couple of years. To find a way to laugh about this together is really hard and potentially really special.”

In his new show “Shrinking” Jason Segel plays a psychologist in mourning over the death of his wife. He created the show with the makers of the hit series Ted Lasso Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein. The joke here is that he then breaks all the rules that a therapist is supposed to follow and shares his personal issues with his clients, Harrison Ford plays Segel’s therapist.
