Amy Adams, Jason Segel and Walter are on set for The Muppets
The Muppets have always been a bright ray of sunshine. As a youngster in the mid 80's, I would preoccupy myself with all things Muppet Babies. Gonzo was my favorite.
Naturally, I'm pretty happy about THE MUPPETS, formerly known as THE GREATEST MUPPET MOVIE EVER MADE. It follows, "Walter (voiced by Paul Rudd), Kermit, Miss Piggy and the whole Muppet gang as they put on a show to save their old theatre. Adams plays Segel's love interest, Mary." The script was written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stroller (GET HIM TO THE GREEK). James Bobin (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) is on hand to direct.
The Daily Mail has new images of Segel, Adams, and Walter the Muppet on the set of the film. The picture of Adams with her hand on Walter's back is so adorable. It's not as adorable when you realize that at any moment his puppeteer could look right up her skirt. But I'm sure the guy with his hand up Walter is a gentleman.
Also, it was reported that Jane Lynch would have a role in the film, but according to her this is not true. Lynch said this in an article from Reuters (via /Film), "I'm not doing the Muppets movie. They haven't asked me. I would do it if they asked me."
