The End of the Tour Trailer

Jason Segel Playing David Foster Wallace Will Change What You Think of Him

Jason Segel is taking a leap from his usual comedic roles to play real-life author David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour. Jesse Eisenberg stars opposite him as Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky, the writer who chronicled five days with Wallace at the end of his book tour (which he wrote about in the book Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace, which the movie is also based on). Whatever doubts you may have about Segel being able to play the dramatic role, put them aside, because it looks like this could be the film that marks a turning point in his career. The film comes out July 31, so get your first look at footage now.
