Why?

I mean, I get the actual why, I understand that there are very likely people involved who want to tell this story, I can grok the basic desire to perhaps bring this book to life, I can comprehend the fact that individuals involved in this project are perhaps fans of the author in question, I acknowledge that Jason Segel is an actor people will pay money to watch as he acts in things, I can even wrap my head around the fact that it’s just a movie and does nothing to alter the things that have been written by (or about) the author in question and so being even remotely miffed about it is an unnecessary indulgence. Still, I will read that Jason Segel will play David Foster Wallace (in a movie based on David Lipsky’s book “Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself“) and I will return only to wondering why.
