Jason Segel will star as the late David Foster Wallace with Jesse Eisenberg playing Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky. Lipsky is both the author and central character of the film's source material, "Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace." Published about a year and a half after the "Infinite Jest" author's death, Lipsky's book is a travelogue comprised of interviews he conducted with DFW in 1996 during the final week of the book tour for the novelist's epic tome.
