It's been quiet on the 'Muppet 2' front for a while. We knew that James Bobin would return to write and direct, with writing assistance from Nicholas Stoller, and we knew that the sequel would be Jason Segel-free. But it looks like now they've started the casting process for the next film, and the first name is a bit of a surprise: Christoph Waltz.

Is 'Community' Season 4 Doing A Muppet Episode?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick July 31, 2012 @ 5:00 PM
One of the sad trade-offs of network comedies is that despite larger episode orders, episodes tend to shoot in studio, thus making it difficult to procure much news from filming.  So while we don't get know much about the hotly-anticipated 'Community' season 4, the first under new show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio, we've all got our potential wishlist.  What's one 'Community' star saying they'd love to see as an episode?

When we heard that Casey Anthony was trying to turn her journal that she's reportedly been keeping ever since her 2-year-old daughter first went missing into a best-selling book (which will probably then become a Lifetime original movie if it ever gets published), we had to take a look back at the trial to remind ourselves of how mildly absurd this idea is.

'Muppets 2' to Include a Healthy Dose of Walter

'The Muppets' was one of the most charming films to come out last year. Lifelong fans (guilty!) of Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang were ecstatic to see their childhood friends once again on the big screen. The Jason Segel starring movie introduced The Muppets to an entirely new generation of kids. It also introduced the world to a brand new Muppet called Walter. And while Walter was one of the main characters in the film, would he be returning for the recently announced sequel?

Awwww, Jason Segel is Not Doing 'Muppets 2'

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.
