Jason Segel - Jason Segal Wants Bad Roles

Jason Segal wants to play a bad guy.

The 31-year-old star - who is best known for his comedy roles in movies including 'Knocked Up' and 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' - is keen to show a different side of his acting skills and wants to portray an evil character in the near future.

He said: "A baddie is something I think I'd be really good at, because I'm walking the line between charming and creepy. Not me! My characters.

"I always play on the charming side of the line. It'd be fun to switch sides and let the creepy side come out."

However, his new movie 'Five Year Engagement' - which he wrote and stars in alongside British actress Emily Blunt - puts him back in the comedy setting.

Jason insists he didn't find it difficult getting Emily on board.

He told Total Film magazine: "I knew that if we got to do an adult romantic comedy she and I would be a great team, so I made it happen."
