Jason Segel's ability to consistently create memorable and hilarious characters is what sets him apart from most Hollywood youth. Most recently he was seen in Judd Apatow's Knocked Up for Universal.

In 1999, Segel portrayed Nick on Freaks and Geeks, Judd Apatow's Emmy Award-nominated television series for NBC.

In 2000, he had a recurring role as Eric on Undeclared, the Fox series about college freshmen, which was named one of Time magazine's Ten Best Shows of 2001.

Currently, Segel stars as Marshall, opposite Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor and Neil Patrick Harris, in the third season of the hit comedy series How I Met Your Mother, the story of a young man's struggle to find his true love. This series was also touted by Time magazine, hitting the list at No. 8 on the Ten Best Shows of 2005.

Next up for Segel is Five-Year Engagement, which will reunite him with Forgetting Sarah Marshall's director, Nicholas Stoller. He will co-write with Stoller and star in the comedy. Apatow Productions will return to produce the picture, about the ups and downs of a man's five-year engagement to his fiancée.

Previous feature credits include Slackers, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, SLC Punk, Can't Hardly Wait and Dead Man on Campus.
