How I Met Your Mother and I Love You, Man star Jason Segel is in talks to play a gym teacher in the comedy Bad Teacher, which already has Cameron Diaz as a lead, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The story centers around Diaz, who plays a money-grubbing teacher obsessed with landing the school’s model teacher, who has yet to be cast. The Break-Up scene stealer Michael Higgins has also joined the cast as the school’s principal. The film will begin shooting next month in Los Angeles.
