Could fans soon see a “How I Met Your Mother” reunion?
It’s a distinct possibility, with one member of the ensemble cast declaring he’s ready to do it, referring to the sitcom as one of the defining moments of his life.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter at the Austin Film Festival in Austin, Texas, Jason Segel discussed his openness to a “HIMYM” reunion with cast-mates Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor.
“I’d be around for whatever those guys wanted to do,” says Segel. “It changed my life.”
As for what he’d like to see happen in a reunion, the actor/writer of such films as “The Muppets” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” says he’s content to do what he always did on the show: leave it to the writers.
“One of the great things about my relationship to that show is I never got involved in the writing, I just tried to execute what these brilliant writers did, so I would leave that to them, as usual,” he says.
Segel attended the film fest to screen a retrospective of 2011’s “The Muppets”, and he tells THR why he opted to show that movie as opposed to one of his other films.
“Amidst everything that’s going on in the world right now, it seemed like a really fun, just nice, just positive thing to do,” he says.
