Jason Segel to Star in Muppet Movie
Exciting news on the Best Muppet Movie Ever Made front: Jason Segel is on board as the live-action star of the film!
This news comes on the heels of other prime information, including the fact the “The Flight of the Conchords’” James Bobin will direct the film and that Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller will be scripting the movie.
You’ve seen Judd Apatow darling Jason Segel work with puppets before in his “inspired” dracula theater piece in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, so let’s hope the inspiration continues!
Additionally, Segel will produce the film with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV (“The Proposal”).
