Jason Segel To Play David Foster Wallace in Biopic

Jason Segel is to play David Foster Wallace in forthcoming film The End of the Tour, based on the book Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace.  The 2010 book was written by Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky, and is what it says on the tin: an account of a road trip with the author as he went across the US promoting his 1,100-page novel Infinite Jest, recalling the conversations the pair have and the fame that Foster Wallace is starting to experience. Jesse Eisenberg, who played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network and starred in Now You See Me earlier this year, will play Lipsky.
