Jason Segel To Play David Foster Wallace Opposite Jesse Eisenberg
Get ready for the most neurotically lumpy buddy road trip ever. The Wrap reports Jason Segel will be joining Jesse Eisenberg in The End of the Tour, Anonymous Content's adaptation of David Lipsky's book Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace. Segel will play Wallace, the late postmodernist writer who killed himself in 2008, while Eisenberg will play Lipsky, the Rolling Stone reporter who went with Wallace on the end of the author's tour for his seminal Infinite Jest. Production is scheduled to begin sometime in February or March. Early college creative writing classes are scheduled to talk about this from the beginning of class until the topic gets derailed by someone insisting Hunter S. Thompson biopics are more important anyway.
