Hillary Clinton rejects Jason Segel

Jason Segel, the “Five Year Engagement” star, will have to wait a lot longer than five years to team up with his dream co-star, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Back in March, Segel told Us Weekly he thinks Clinton would be “good at comedy,” and even picked out a title for their future film: “Sarah Marshall 2: This Time It’s Personal.”

Last week, Segel admitted to Jimmy Fallon that he often tells people that Clinton is the mysterious, unnamed mother on his hit sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother.”

Unfortunately for Segel, Clinton is a busy woman — but she took the time to let him down gently in a rejection letter.

The letter, obtained by Politico, reads as follows:

I was delighted to read about your interest in sharing the big screen with me. As you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall … again. My only condition is that there be Muppets involved, and that is non-negotiable. In the meantime, you have my best wishes for continued success with your career.
