Jason Segel. biography
Actor Jason Jordan Segel was born on January 18, 1980 in Los Angeles, California and attended Harvard-Westlake School, using most of his spare time making movies and strengthening his puppet infatuation as a teenager. Jason's passion for acting emerged during his senior year when a casting director attended one of his performances and quickly noticed his talent. Going off the casting director's response, Jason opted out of college to pursue a career in acting.
Jason landed his first role in Judd Apatow's high school dramatic comedy TV series Freaks and Geeks (1980) alongside James Franco and Seth Rogen, which only ran for one season. Jason then appeared in Apatow's college sitcom Undeclared (2001) but the show premiered to dismal ratings and was eventually canceled. His big break came in 2005, when he landed a role on the successful sitcom How I Met Your Mother with Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris.
The show's popularity launched Jason into stardom, giving him the opportunity to write and star in the comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) alongside Kristen Bell, Russell Brand and Mila Kunis. He went on to co-star with Paul Rudd in the comedy I Love You, Man (2009), the fantasy comedy Gulliver's Travels (2010) alongside Jack Black and star as the voice of a super-villain in the animated comedy Despicable Me (2010).
Jason's most recent work includes a supporting role in the comedy Bad Teacher (2011) with Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake and co-writing, producing and starring in the musical comedy The Muppets (2011). He also co-wrote and starred in the romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement (2012) opposite Emily Blunt.
