Not everyone was enthused when word broke that Jason Segel would play beloved writer David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour, based on Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky's book, Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself.

But here's a chance to see Segel in character as Wallace, who committed suicide in 2008, shooting scenes at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. Jesse Eisenberg will play Lipsky, who wrote about his road trip with Wallace.

Another Instagram user caught video of Segel and Eisenberg in action, apparently staring in awe at the mall.
