Jason Segel To Star In Punk Rock Parenting Pic ‘The Other F Word’

Jason Segel To Star In Punk Rock Parenting Pic 'The Other F Word'

Jason Segel and music, are like peanut butter and chocolate. The actor rarely heads into a project that doesn’t have him contributing at least a bit of musical flavor, whether it’s slappin’ de bass with Paul Rudd while listening to Rush in “I Love You Man,” creating a vampire puppet theater show in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” trying to live his dream as the drummer of Dimension in “Freaks And Geeks” or just going all-out with the Muppets in “The Muppets.” But now, he’s going to put a safety pin through his ear and spike that hair up.

Segel and Drew Pearce (“Iron Man 3,” “Godzilla“) have sold a pitch to Fox that will find them adapating Andrea Blaugrand Nevins‘ documentary “The Other F Word” into a feature film. Nevins’ flick was a fairly tepid look (read our review here) at real-life punk rockers, who are also Dads, and the complications and compromises that ensue. Certainly, the material is there to create a decent little dramedy, and we suspect that’s what Segel and Pearce will be aiming for as they co-write and co-produce the project.

So add it to Segel’s development pile, and the pictures he’s likely to consider once his stint on “How I Met Your Mother” draws to a close. Until then, here’s the trailer for the original.

Punk's Dead

This is not the Sequel to SLC Punk!. The Sequel to SLC Punk! is called Punk's Dead and will be released in 2014.


Sequel to SLC Punk? It's funny — I loved that movie when I was in my early teens, but I didn't realize Segel was in it until years later, after he got really high profile post-I Love You Man and I bothered to really check his IMDB page
