Jason Segel Signs On For An Adventure

Jason Segel has just signed on to star opposite Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman in The Adventurer's Handbook.

The flick will be directed by Akiva Schaffer for Universal. 

As for the screenplay, it was penned by Hill, Matt Spicer and Max Winkler, yes, Henry's son, and deals with four childhood buddies who, bored from their bland adulthood, decide to go on a journey around the world inspired by the tales in Mick Conefrey's book, The Adventurer's Handbook: Life Lessons From History's Great Explorers.

Segel will play a washed up musician who wasted his youth, and ended up a back-up pianist and alcoholic.  Schwartzman will play a pain in the ass Grammy winner and Hill will play an engineer who no longer feels close to his family.

We already know Hill and Segel work well together, and we think Schwartzman would fit in nicely.

Universal hopes the flick will be in production early 2010.

We hope it doesn't suck.

    FIRST!!!

    and who cares?



  2. 2

    sounds interesting.
    Schwartzman is really good at playing a pain in the ass douche, so he'll do great.



  3. 3

    Jason Schwartzman was on Freaks and Geeks (on at least one or two episodes)with Jason Segel, Perez. They have worked together before.



  4. 4

    LOVE Akiva Schaffer. He's super great.



  11. 11

    Overweight is one thing but morbidly obese is another. I think we all know who I mean.

    !!!!!!! awesome line up! and I agree, hopefully it doesn't suck. I can't see it sucking though with that line up. Personally though I wish the actors would switch up roles more often… Jonah always seems to play the smart/ivy league/whatever character.. But, if it means that Jason will play the piano on screen.. bring it on



  13. 13

    Schwartzman's music is actually worth checking out.



  14. 14

    I LOVE JASON SEGEL!!!



  15. 15

    wow jonah hill is really getting obese



  16. 16

    Jason Schwartzman is good in anything



  17. 17

    Jason Segel is the man!



  18. 18

    Jonah should seriously start losing some weight. I don't say it in a disrespecful way but he doesn't look good like this. He shouldn't go Seth Rogen skinny but I mean just a little bit.

    seems like these days the only funny men to get jobs are Jews….
    man I wish I was one. they are sexy specially them jewfros.
    but yeah it seems like a requirement to get a part in a movie these days…
    e.i Funny people movie



  20. 20

    Segel and Schwartzman worked together on a horrible flick called "Slackers." so super excited for this movie though!!!



  21. 21

    yea i hope it doesn't either, cus Funny People reaallyy suckedddd



  22. 22

    I hope its really funny, they are all really hilarious people btw Jason Schwartzman's hair is amazing



  23. 23

    they've all worked together before…



  24. 24

    love me some Jason Schwartzman….not ur run of the mill leading man but he is awesome in everything i've seen him in….plus he's a musician so thats always a plus…



  25. 25

    Is anyone else bloody sick of these guys + Seth Rogen?



  26. 26

    Who's going to be the fourth buddy I wonder? I'm hoping Andy Samberg!!!



  27. 27

    jason segel looks mighty fine in that photo



  28. 28

    Jason Segel is definitely my very least favorite of the people in that crew. If Apatow never put him in another film I would be very happy.



  29. 29

    schwartzman never fully-smiled in his life.but I loved him in rushmore!



  30. 30

    Wishing them well!

    Schwartzman and Segel have already worked together in a little film called "Slackers" - alongside Devon Sawa and James (Jamie) King.



  32. 32

    That whole crew is overrated, and suddenly so fat



  33. 33

    Guess Perez missed something obvious, yet again. Stick to insulting people who make more money then you, Perez. When it comes to trivia, you fail, every time.



  34. 34

    i love akiva! he's amazing. ♥ x



  35. 35

    Schwartzman and Segel both starred in Slackers together, as well as freaks and geeks… Anyway i'm excited for the movie!



  36. 36

    sounds like that movie without a paddle the movie with seth green matt lilard and the guy thats dating kristin bell. i love these guys so i think it will still be funny hopefully better then without a paddle. I hope i get to see Segel's man hood again!!



  37. 37

    sounds like a familiar premise,
    jason shwartzman playing annoying like in funny people and segel as a washed up musician a la forgetting sarah marshall, but i'll take it, judd apatow should be involved tho



  38. 38

    Segel is a fine ass biatch…can't wait for this one!
