We're not surprised! He's been helping develop this project for a while!

Jason Segel is set to play the human lead in the new Muppets movie.

And we think he's just the right fit.

The How I Met Your Mother actor has already been co-writing the script with Nicholas Stoller, and will share producing credits with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman!

James Bobin will direct the film, which is shooting for a 2012 release date!

This just keeps getting better and better!!

What do U think?? Are U excited for new Muppets movie??
