Next up for Jason Segel: Children’s Book Series


Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t the only celeb in the news today for selling stuff to kids.  Jason Segel, actor-puppeteer-tall Jew extraordinaire, will be writing a series of middle grade children’s books for Random House, according to the New York Times.

“Ultimately, it’s a story about learning that we can accomplish anything, as long as we are brave enough to try,” Segel said of the “Nightmares!” adventure series, which will center on a bunch of kids out to rescue their neighborhood from fear.

Well, not quite the literary version of “Freaks and Geeks” we were hoping for, but still sounds interesting.
