After How I Met Your Mother, Jason Segel is returning to act in a comedy series with Apple TV+’s Shrinking. The show had premiered last week, and we have a new featurette showcasing Segel and his co-star Harrison Ford.
Check this out:
The featurette essentially has Ford and Segel hyping up the release of the show. Though we’ve seen Segel be a hapless, likeable guy with roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement, it’s going to be interesting to see him tackle a role that actually seems like a serious reflection on grief.
As for Harrison Ford, when he’s not playing childhood heroes like Han Solo or Indiana Jones, he’s usually playing the stoic, grump character whether it be an old colonel in Ender’s Game or a retired cop in Blade Runner 2049. I’m actually eager to watch him flex some more of his comedy muscles, because it’s pretty fun to watch him have fun; heck, it’s even fun when he’s being grumpy that he has to promote something like Star Wars.
So far, Shrinking has had a great audience reception, and we should look forward to more of Ford and Segel’s duo onscreen.
Here’s the series description:
Shrinking follows a grieving therapist (played by Segel) who starts to break the rules and tell his clients exactly what he thinks. Ignoring his training and ethics, he finds himself making huge, tumultuous changes to people’s lives…including his own.
