Jason Segel On New 'Muppets' Film: "My Goal Wasn't To Become A Muppet"
Don't be sad that Jason Segel won't be in the next Muppets movie because he's not! The funny actor told reporters at the Jeff, Who Lives At Home premiere in NYC that it was his choice not to be in the next film.
"That was my choice," he said. "My goal was to bring the Muppets back and I’ve left them in really good hands with my writing partner and the director James Bobin, but my goal wasn’t to become a Muppet. I’d like to pursue more human-related projects.”

How did he come to this decision?
“I like to be diverse and bounce between different genres. The Muppets is something I wanted to do as a one-off.”
