New Muppet movie
I found out yesterday while reading Entertainment Weekly that a new Muppet movie is in the works!
I grew up loving the Muppet Show. Oh, and to make it even better Jason Segal, who is awesome in How I Met Your Mother, is co-writing and staring in it! Epic!
The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made’ is about Gary (Segel), Mary (Amy Adams), and Walter (a man, his girlfriend, and the man’s life-long nondescript, brown puppet best friend) getting the old Muppet gang – now retired entertainers known for the same Muppet show we know them from – together to save the TV studio that the original show was shot in. A villain, Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), bent on drilling for oil underneath the studio, is due to take over the studio in weeks, and the only way to stop him? Putting on a show that draws ten million viewers.
And just for a little nostalgia:
