Jason Segel - Rep Denies Jason Segel's How I Met Your Mother Exit Rumours

A spokesperson for Jason Segel has denied the funnyman is leaving hit U.S. sitcom How I Met Your Mother.
The actor, who plays Marshall Eriksen in the Emmy-winning show, was rumoured to be making the upcoming eighth season his last so he could pursue more dramatic roles.
The speculation was apparently sparked after Segel was quoted as telling Austrian website Kurier.at, "I've been playing the nice guy for quite a long time now. That's why I'm gonna quit How I Met Your Mother after the eighth season."
But a representative insists the reports are unfounded, telling TVGuide.com, "Perhaps something got lost in translation, but season nine hasn't even been addressed yet."
Segel has played the lovable character since How I Met Your Mother began in 2005, alongside castmates Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders.
