Jason Segel on 'Our Friend' and Why He's Been So Selective with Recent Acting Roles
Jan 22 2021
With director Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s Our Friend, opening in select theaters and On Demand tomorrow by Gravitas Ventures and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, I recently got to speak with Jason Segel about being part of such an inspiring movie. If you haven’t seen the trailer, Our Friend is based on the Esquire article “The Friend: Love Is Not a Big Enough Word” by Matthew Teague and is about a family (Dakota Johnson and Casey Affleck) dealing with terminal cancer and the close friend (Segel) that moves in to help them out. I recently watched the film and thought it was incredibly well done and featured terrific performances from everyone in the cast. In addition, as someone that has lost a number of close friends the past few years, the film was a beautiful reminder about the intricacies of friendship and the importance of making each day count. Our Friend also stars Jake Owen, Gwendoline Christie, Cherry Jones, Isabella Kai, and Violet McGraw.
