And Jason Segel too, of course!
Turns out, it's actually pretty sweet being green, if you're Kermit The Frog. You pretty much get whatever you want, including an Oscar nominated actress for your new movie. Amy Adams revealed that Kermit sent her a personalized message along with Jason, who wrote The Muppets flick, asking her to join the cast. She explained:
”When I heard they were doing a new one I was really excited. Jason sent me a DVD where he and Kermit were inviting me to be part of The Muppets. It was really cool. Once Kermit asks you to do something it is really hard to look at him and say, “No.” So I was hooked!”
And why wouldn't you be?! It's the freakin' Muppets!!!
Course, not to hurt her feelings or anything, but it might've been more of Jason's idea to have her in the movie than Kermie's. Jason explains:
“I wrote [the part] for her. She was in my mind from the beginning. I mean this woman can do anything. But she’s able to do this wide-eyed naivety that is not part of her personality in real life. She’s one of the most smart, on top of it women I’ve ever met.”
Wow! Such high praise! That kind of flattery would certainly seal the deal for us! LOLz!
Then again, he isn't wrong! Amy truly is quite fabulous and very versatile. We're sure everyone is going to LOVE her in this movie as much as Jason!
Oh! We can't help it! Let's watch the trailer (above) again!!!!
