“How I Met Your Mother” star Jason Segel is doing a, well, Father comedy.

Deadline reports that Segel and Drew Pearce have sold Fox on their idea to turn the documentary “The Other F Word”, about aging punk musicians (like Red Hot Chilli Pepper Flea) as they transition into a life of parenthood, while continuing to live their life as rebel rock stars, into a feature film.

Segel, a big deal these days thanks to starring turns in the likes of “The Muppets”, “The Five-Year Engagement” and “I Love You, Man”, would play the title role.

Andrea Blaugrand Nevins, who wrote and directed the doco, would executive produce the film. Cristan Reilly, a producer on the doc, retains her role on the feature.
