More Muppet humans?

We know that Jason Segel has an affinity for puppetry -- in case this wasn't clearly demonstrated by the climax of FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, he also plans to revive Kermit, Fozzie and all the fabric characters made popular by Jim Henson, THE MUPPETS.

Disney is assisting Segel in bringing his dream project to life (as much as a hand in the ass of a felt creature can do), along with MARSHALL director Nicholas Stoller... and potentially every famous person Segel knows.

Segel is still working on the script, but it apparently includes plenty of room for cameos as he tells MTV: "I’ve told all of my friends that I’ve written parts for them, but I have way less friends than you imagine."

Still, those familiar faces could conceivably include (speculation alert!) any of Segel's comrades from the "Apatow Gang" (Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Bill Hader, etc.), "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER" chums like Alyson Hannigan or the great Neil Patrick Harris, or MARSHALL's sexy ladies Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell.

Either way, there's going to be a whole lot of foam rubber and flailing limbs, and (thankfully) not much male frontal nudity.

Extra Tidbit: When the MUPPET SHOW returned in the 90s, guests included Prince, Billy Crystal, Pierce Brosnan and Sandra Bullock.
