Jason Segel is officially starring in the new Muppets movie
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I feel like I’ve heard about Jason Segel and the next Muppet movie for a few years and until now, I didn’t even realize that he wasn’t officially attached to star. I just assumed that since he loves the Muppets so much and since he wrote the script, he would naturally make himself the star. But today comes official word that Jason Segel will, in fact, be starring as the lead human in the upcoming Muppets movie titled THE GREATEST MUPPET MOVIE OF ALL TIME. In conjunction with writing and starring, Segel will also be one of the producers of the film. James Bobin will be directing.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times; they have to get Steve Martin involved somehow. Apart from that, I love the Muppets and I’m anxious to see what Jason Segel does with the opportunity.
