Here's the First Photo of Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace

Courtesy of Instagrammers at the Mall of America, we now have a first look at How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel as the late David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour.

Jesse Eisenberg co-stars as Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky, whose 2010 book Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, about a 5-day road trip with Wallace, was adapted for the film.

When Segel was cast in December, many were skeptical that he could play Wallace. Really, though, the biggest challenge for The End of the Tour might not be the casting: It might be the source material.
