Jason Segel Plans to Leave 'HIMYM' in Three Years


In a recent interview with Esquire, 'How I Met Your Mother' co-star Jason Segel said he plans to leave the show in three years to focus on other projects.


Segel's contract with the hit comedy expires in 2013, he said, and he doesn't plan to stick around to play bumbling married guy Marshall Eriksen one minute longer.


"I think after eight years, I'll feel like I honorably did my commitment. It's funny -- it's the greatest problem in the world to have. Jeez, I'm the luckiest guy in the world. But when your idol is Peter Sellers, playing one character for eight years isn't what you're trying to do," he told the magazine.


Segel, who has more than six movies in development including the upcoming Muppets big screen revival, said he's done about all he can do with the character of Marshall.

i don't believe that the series will last longer than three years. and even if it would, after marshall's departure it would definetely fail.
