Jason Segel to Star in Disney's Muppet Movie! 

Jason Segel will star as the human lead in Disney's Muppets movie! The actor co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller (he directed Segel in the smash hit "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), and will also produce the project with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV, the production outfit behind "The Proposal."

When I spoke with Segel during the press tour for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," he talked about the Muppets movie. Click here to watch my fun one-on-one interview with Segel.

James Bobin is set to direct the film, although the plot is top secret right now. But TheHollywoodReporter.com is saying that Segel will play a man on a quest to find and reunite the Muppets.


If you remember in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," there's a great bit featuring a singing and emoting Dracula puppet, so Segel knows how to add heart and soul to plush Muppets.
