Voice and stage roles
At the suggestion of a friend, he auditioned for voice ads at a New Zealand radio station. His voice (Segers is a bass) earned him a lot of attention, and caught the attention of an agent that lead Segers to be cast as Mufasa in the Australian production of The Lion King. He went on to star in the American and Chinese productions as well.
Unhappy with the lack of leading roles for basses, Segers returned to New Zealand, where he got a request to send in a reel for Pair of Kings. They wanted someone who "spoke like James Earl Jones but looked like The Rock." Segers landed the role of Mason Makoola, the guard of twin kings Brady and Boomer on a Polynesian island called Kinkow. He also hosts Fort Boyard: Ultimate Challenge along with Laura Hamilton.
