Jason Segel Talks About The Story Behind His Dracula Musical

Jason Segel Talks About The Story Behind His Dracula Musical

Jason Segel is dapper in a suit while attending the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences New Member Reception held at Lincoln Ristorante on Monday (October 5) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor was joined at the event by Patricia Clarkson and director of the New York Programs Academy Of Motion Picture Arts, Patrick Harrison.

Jason recently opened up about the story behind his puppet rock-opera centered around Count Dracula titled A Taste for Love, which was first seen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

“I was going through this slow period, and at this time I was smoking a lot of pot, if we’re going to be honest about it,” Jason revealed (via Vulture). “And I came up with the conclusion that the way I was going to jump-start my career was with a lavish Dracula puppet musical. I wrote the Dracula musical alone in my apartment and I recorded it.”

“I then drove to Judd Apatow‘s house with a CD that I burned for him,” Jason added. “I played it for him. I remember it got to the end of the song, and Judd reached over and pushed pause and stopped it. And he said, you can’t play that for anybody.”

    I <3 the Dracula musical at the end of Sarah Marshall. I don't know if that final piece was what he originally wrote, but the show was fun at the end. He should write a full play and bring it around the US to small theaters with the steamers and everything like it was in the movie. Or do a movie. Maybe a Tim Burton-esque stop animation.
