How to get me even more excited about the upcoming new Muppet movie: Get Amy Adams and Rashida Jones on board. Oh, and Chris Cooper too, but really, it’s all about Adams and Jones for me.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adams, Jones and Cooper are in talks to join How I Met Your Mother‘s Jason Siegel’s new Muppet movie, which he co-wrote with Forgetting Sarah Marshall partner Nicholas Stoller. Adams will play Siegel’s girlfriend, Jones an ABC executive – keeping it in the corporate family, considering that the Muppets and ABC are both owned by Disney these days – and Cooper the villain of the piece, an evil oil executive who never found the Muppets funny. Yes, it sounds corny, but that’s half the fun of the Muppet movies – but then, I admit to being biased; I’ve always secretly seen myself as a less-felt-covered Scooter.
