May 2013 - Present Just months after calling it quits with Michelle Williams, Jason Segel coupled up again.
He soon became a regular member of Apatow's repertory company for films and television, appearing in memorable supporting roles in the short-lived "Undeclared" (Fox, 2001-02) and the blockbuster hit "Knocked Up" (2007), before graduating to a lead in the 2008 comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," which he also wrote.
Segel also scored on television as the eccentric lawyer-in-trainer Marshall Eriksen on the comedy "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS, 2005-2014), a popular sitcom that ran for nine seasons.
During his time on the show, Segel was able to star in movies, co-starring with Paul Rudd in "I Love You, Man" (2009), Jack Black in "Gulliver's Travels" (2010), Cameron Diaz in "Bad Teacher" (2011) and Ed Helms in "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" (2011).
By the time he co-wrote and co-starred in his dream project "The Muppets" (2011), Segel had himself well-positioned as a multifaceted threat capable of translating his talents into a wide array of projects.
In high school, 6-foot-4 Segel's height made him a natural on the basketball team, but he gravitated toward acting and appeared in productions at the Palisades Playhouse.
