When the sequel to 'The Muppets' was announced it was strange to hear that director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller were returning but Jason Segel - who seemed to will the film into production - had no involvement. There were thoughts that Segel might make a cameo or have a reduced role, but the actor has now squashed those rumors by announcing he won't have any part in the next film.

About a month ago, Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love publicly railed against the movie 'The Muppets,' saying Disney and the beloved puppets "raped" her late husband memory by remaking Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' for the film. And it seems she isn't finished having her say.
Her new target? The star and co-writer of 'The Muppets,' Jason Segel.

'Jeff, Who Lives at Home' Review

I have a friend who works in the mental health field. One time he told me (quite possibly in violation of every ethical oath he's taken) about a divorced father who kidnapped his kid because he was convinced his ex-wife had been replaced by an alien. As he was working on the case he realized that the move to commit this man to an institution flew in the face of watching a lifetime of movies. If it were Hollywood, the third act would reveal that he was right all along.
To my delight and surprise a similar bit of musing is one of the core concepts of Jay and Mark Duplass' remarkable 'Jeff, Who Lives At Home.'

Cruel Fate! Jason Segel Will Not Return for 'Muppets' Sequel

Vulture reported a few days ago that Nicholas Stoller is currently working on writing a sequel to last year's 'Muppets' film, but the involvement of Jason Segel remained hazy at best, with the best case scenario being that he'd once again act in the film but would not be able to co-write due to prior commitments.
