Jason Segel Is Writing A Children’s Book, Remains Great

CBS "How I Met Your Mother" Hosts Largest High Speed Dating Event

Jason Segel is pretty universally known to be pretty great, so it should be no surprise that he’s now conquering the world of children’s book writing with Nightmares!, a story about a group of small town kids who band together to overcome their fear of the monsters. Apparently this will be a series put together with co-author Kirsten Miller.

“I couldn’t be more excited that Nightmares! has found a home at Random House,” Segel said in a statement.

“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.”

Cute! Writing’s no new thing for Segel – after all, he’s already done The Five Year Engagement and The Muppets – but it is his first book. I wonder if Michelle Williams is gonna buy Matilda a copy.
