‘How I Met Your Mother’ fans got a bit of a scare when they learned that funnyman Jason Segel was considering leaving the series, however a rep for the actor has denied the claims.
Segel, who plays Marshall Eriksen on the Emmy Award winning show was rumored to be making the upcoming eighth season his last to focus on his dramatic film career, when he was quoted 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.”
A rep for Segel has refuted the quote, telling TVGuide.com, “Perhaps something got lost in translation, but season nine hasn’t even been addressed yet.”
Segel has been with ‘HIMYM’ since it premiered back in 2005.
