Paul Rudd may not get to re-team with Jason Segel for The Muppets

12.06.2010

This is kind of a bummer.

After all this time thinking that Paul Rudd was going to voice Walter for THE MUPPETS, it turns out that probably won't be happening.

MTV spoke with Rudd who said this, "I wish that I was [in it]. It's all rumor. I wanted to be in it, and I talked to Jason, but I think there was some things that happened and I don't know if I'm gonna get to do it." I really thought it was set that Rudd was playing the new Muppet roommate of Segel who is obsessed with the iPhone.

Rudd was sincerely disappointed, "It blows actually. It really sucks." But maybe he'll be in the sequel? "I'm hoping for the 'Muppet Movie 2.' I'm playing Charles Grodin in 'Muppet 2: Electric Waterloo?' Beaker-loo? Muppet Movie 2: The Muppets Are Still Taking Manhattan."

So who is going to voice Walter now if Rudd can't do it? What about one of his co-stars on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER? Neil Patrick Harris or Josh Radnor would do just fine. Maybe it will be one of his big-screen buddies like Jay Baruchel, Bill Hader or Andy Samberg? My vote goes to Martin Starr.

Check out Rudd's mic stealing antics below if you wish to do so.

Slapping Da Bass!

P.S. This sucks but it was only a voiceover and probably a small part at that so I don't really know if I care. I like Rudd but hopefully he's got some more R-Rated comedies like Role Models on the way.

P.P.S. I thought I Love You, Man was just okay. I much prefer Role Models.

This sucks. Rudd and Segel make a good comedic team and Rudd would have been hilarious in this.

For a new voice how bout' someone Segel has worked with from "Undeclared", that voice being the voice of Charlie Hunnam. Would be an awesome puppet's voice.

rudd said a gobful of nothing....

"I wish that I was [in it]....some things that happened and I don't know if I'm gonna get to do it." what the fuck does that mean? "something happened" way to be forthcoming with info rudd. Hey, remember Rudd in Halloween?

What do you want, a fuckin book?! He said all he needed to say that's important. Just because he's an actor doesn't mean he owes us some deep explanation.

I loved that you mentioned Martin Starr for this. I wish he would get more work like the rest of the freaks and geeks guys. Bill was my favorite character on that show. The best is when he dresses up like The Bionic Woman for halloween lol

They should just get one of the muppet performers to do the voice.
