Jason Segel is in talks to join Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Collateral Beauty.

The story follows a New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy. When his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression, the plan works, but not in a way that anyone imagined.

Known more for his comedic roles, Segel has been showing more dramatic range as of late with his most recent pic, the David Foster Wallace movie The End of the Tour, which awarded him some of the best reviews of his career.
