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??
