CBS 2013 Upfront Presentation"How I Met Your Mother" ran for nine seasons before wrapping in 2014 with one of the most controversial series finales in recent memory, but for at least one star of the sitcom, there could be more story to tell.

Jason Segel, who played goofy Marshall Eriksen on the CBS comedy, recently commented on the series while appearing at the Austin Film Festival. When asked a question about his interest in appearing in a "HIMYM" reunion, the actor didn't hesitate with his enthusiastic response.

"I'd be around for whatever those guys wanted to do," Segel said. "It changed my life."

It's unclear exactly who the actor was referring to as "those guys," though a safe bet would be series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Segel singled out the talent of the "HIMYM" writing staff when asked for his thoughts on where a potential reunion would go.

"I would leave that to the writers," the actor said of a hypothetical reunion plot. "One of the great things about my relationship to that show is I never got involved in the writing, I just tried to execute what these brilliant writers did, so I would leave that to them, as usual."

While those who were turned off by the "HIMYM" finale (*raises hand*) may question those writers' brilliance, it's nice to see Segel give them the credit they're due for their hard work over so many seasons of television. Now the actor just needs to see if his costars Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, and Josh Radnor are on board. (There better be a beyond-the-grave cameo from Cristin Milioti's Mother, too.)
