The cast of Jason Segel’s Muppet movie grows

A bunch of talented actors are close to joining the cast of the upcoming Jason Segel-penned Muppet movie.

According to THR, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and Rashida Jones are all in negotiations to star in the as-yet untitled Disney movie. (We thought it was called The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time, but I guess we were wrong.)

As previously reported. Segel will star as the human lead alongside Kermit and company. His role is as Gary, a man whose best friend is a puppet bear called Walter. Gary, his girlfriend Mary and Walter team up to defeat an evil oil baron who believes he can smell oil beneath the Muppets’ studio.

Amy Adams is gearing up to play Segel’s girlfriend, while Cooper will play the film’s villain. Jones would play a television executive.

James Bobin, co-creator and director of the television show Flight of the Conchords, will helm the movie. Filming starts in November.
