‘Muppets’ Sequel in the Works, Segel Not Writing

A sequel to the November hit musical, The Muppets, is moving into development after an announcement from Walt Disney confirmed the film. Director James Bobin and screenwriter Nicholas Stoller will be returning, but it seems as if Jason Segel won’t be returning for another round of writing for the sequel. This isn’t to say that he still won’t co-star, but he cites his commitments to “How I Met Your Mother”, as well as other projects he’s working on, as the reason he’s not returning as writer.

Now, Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel have been collaborators for quite a long time. Stoller directed Segel’s screenplay for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and then took over as writer and director for the spin-off, Get Him To The Greek. Both of those films are absolutely hilarious, so I have no fear that The Muppets sequel won’t be great. My hope is that Segel will return to star in the sequel, and that Bret McKinzie will also return as composer. I mean, the guy won an Oscar for “Man or Muppet”, he probably has a pretty good incentive to come back, right?

The Grizzly’s Spotlight: Kristen Bell

Some of those who know me best knew it was only a matter of time until this Native Metro-Detroiter made the list. Kristen Bell first caught my eye in Veronica Mars which is a show that was mistakingly labeled as a ‘High School Drama’, but in reality was really a neo-noir disguised as a show about High School. Anyway, the point is, that was a show unjustifiably dismissed by many people, and it deserved a 4th season. Anyhow, it was enough to make me a fan for life.
