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.

The Other F Word Jason Segel

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.
