Hillary Clinton Rejects Jason Segel
The Secretary of State writes Jason Segel a sweet, yet crushing rejection letter
Jason Segel has worked with many funny actors and actresses, including Russell Brand, Kristin Bell, Emily Blunt, Paul Rudd, and Mila Kunis… but last month Segel shared his dream co-star with Us Weekly. And that would be former first lady and current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
While speaking with the magazine, Segel said that Clinton had a knack for comedy and joked that Clinton is the mysterious mother in “How I Met Your Mother”.
Clinton caught wind of Segel’s interest in working with her, and responded with a sweet letter explaining why she couldn’t pursue a big-screen acting career alongside him.
"I was delighted to read about your interest in sharing the big screen with me. As you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall ... again. My only condition is that there be Muppets involved, and that is non-negotiable. In the meantime, you have my best wishes for continued success with your career."
Check Jason Segel out with a leading lady that doesn’t reject him in ‘The Five Year Engagement,” currently in theaters.
