Jason Segel to release children’s book

The super-talented comedian Jason Segel has signed a publishing deal with Random House for a children’s book series.


The How I Met Your Mother actor will release a trilogy of books called Nightmares! and will follow a group of friends who learn the benefits of facing their fears.

Segel, 33, will co-write the fictional series with Kristen Miller. The first book will not be on the shelves until next year. Shame!

In a statement, Jason said: “I couldn’t be more excited that Nightmares! has found a home at Random House.Ultimately, it’s a story about learning that we can accomplish anything, as long as we are brave enough to try. These are the types of stories that always inspired me.”

This will be his first book venture but writing isn’t a new thing for Jason. He has writing credits for a number of movies including The Muppets, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him To The Greek and The Five Year Engagement.

I doubt this is aimed at my target audience so I probably won’t read it. I know it will be amazing though because Jason is so talented and his writing skills are amazing. Obviously, this is a different type of writing to what we are used to but I just know he will awesome.
