VIDEO: Who's Jason Segel's Dream Costar? Hillary Clinton!

The Despicable Me star explains why he finds the U.S. Secretary of State "hilarious"


Funnyman Jason Segel has starred opposite Hollywood stars such as Mila Kunis (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), but he's still holding out for one special woman. And judging by his pick, he must have a thing for political powerhouses in bright pantsuits.

The Despicable Me star tells iVillage exclusively that his ideal leading lady is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "I just feel like she's tough, but if you break through it, there's probably something very soft and sweet inside," Segel explains, with a hint of sarcasm. "And she's hilarious....She'd be great at physical comedy."

In his new animated comedy, Segel plays the evil villian, which he admits was a fun change. He showed his lovable side as Paul Rudd's crazy best friend in last year's hit comedy I Love You, Man. So who would Segel choose for his own real-life bromance? "I think I'd pick that Harry Connick, Jr." he says. "He seems like he'd be fun!"

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out how Segel's music background helps his acting, and hear the hilarious story of how he once embarrassed his big brother at summer camp.
