* CreatorBacklash: A relatively mild example, but Segel had said in interviews that he was ready to leave ''How I Met Your Mother'' after the eight season, both because he wanted to pursue other acting roles, and because he felt there wasn't much left to do with Marshall as a character. He then suggested it would be interesting if Marshall and Lily got divorced, but then acknowledged that such a dark plot wouldn't work within the standard sitcom conventions that the show utilized.

* ''Series/DispatchesFromElsewhere'' (2020)



* ActorSharedBackground: He's half-Jewish like his character Tom in ''Film/TheFiveYearEngagement''. A marginal case for ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', where his character Marshall wants to be a lawyer - Jason's father had been a lawyer. Marshall is also a former basketball player, as Jason is in real life too.
