Jason Segel is a  wait for it!  young adult novelist?

The 33-year-old How I Met Your Mother star has written a young adult novel trilogy based on one of his scripts, according to VH1.

Jason has already written the three books, and they will probably be released next year.

The series hasn't yet landed at a publishing house, but apparently there is a "bidding war" currently going on between a number of publishers for the books.

So what are the books about?

“It’s about kids facing their biggest fears — that’s about all I can tell you,” Jason coyly reveals. 

Wait — isn't every young adult book about kids facing their fears? Thanks so much for the details, Jason.

Jason reveals that the books are based on a script that he iniitally wrote when he was just 21 years old and sold for "super cheap" because he "didn't know any better."

Eight years later, Jason bought back the rights to the script and decided to turn them into these books.

Given that Jason has co-written the scripts for The Muppets and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, it's clear that he is a talented scribe.

We can't wait to get our hands on these books!
