CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (AP) - Actor Jason Segel has been honored as Man of the Year by Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals.
He got the traditional pudding pot Friday evening after a roast by the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe.
Segel plays Marshall Eriksen on the CBS comedy “How I Met Your Mother.” He co-wrote and starred in last year’s “The Muppets.” And Friday he sang a version of “Rainbow Connection” written by the troupe.
Segel got his start in the short-lived but critically acclaimed television series “Freaks and Geeks.” He later wrote and starred in the 2008 movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” which earned more than $100 million worldwide.
Hasty Pudding honored actress Claire Danes as its Woman of the Year.
Last year’s Man of the Year was Jay Leno.
