Jason Segel to meet the Muppets

The Muppets are coming back into the spotlight in a big way.

According to an exclusive at The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Segel (I Love You Man, Bad Teacher) has signed onto the project to star as the main human character, presumably opposite the usual cast of felt critters. He will also be working as producer on the project, alongside David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (The Proposal).

It seems only natural that Segel is signed on, as he wrote the script (the plot of which is still secret) alongside Nicholas Stoller (Get Him to the Greek).

The film will be directed by James Bobin, who has up to this point worked primarily in television, including The Flight of the Conchords and Da Ali G Show.
