The script Josh mentions in the interview is probably Happythankyoumoreplease – “While his friends grapple with loneliness and romantic trials, an aspiring novelist learns about caring by taking in a lost child who ran away from foster care and finally realizes he worthy of love as well.”
This is a great interview – Jason talks a lot about the actual production of the movie (casting Russell, things that inspired the screenplay, experiences from shooting Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and what it’s like being in the Apatow gang), as well as the usual stuff (the full frontal nudity in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Stella’s receptionist Abby on How I Met Your Mother, the upcoming Muppets movie)
Well, that’s an embarrassing side note. But yeah, the Dracula concept, the puppet Dracula musical was not initially for this movie. It was for when I was out of work. It was gonna be my career comeback. I had this notion of putting on this Dracula puppet musical that would somehow just launch me into stardom. And at one point, I played it for Judd and Nick and they laughed so hard. And I was offended. You know, “This is not a joke, guys.”
Empire has some new information on the direction of Jason Segel’s Muppets screenplay –
“It’s a classic story,” he says. “It’s the Muppets needing to get back together to save the show…It’s going to take place all over the world. Basically, the Muppets are no longer together. So that might take a while to film. I guess they’ve set the precedent in that last movie (Muppets From Space) that Gonzo is, in fact, an alien, so he could well end up in space. That guy’s all over the place!”
Spoilers::This article from the Chicago Tribune is a few weeks old, but the last two bullet points have some info on episodes that still haven’t aired. One explains the title of 3.16, “Sandcastles in the Sand.” [Spoiler level: Won't ruin any major plot developments, but will take the potential surprise out of what will still be an awesome bit.] The other gives some very general information about what to expect from Barney later this season.
Interview:: ComingSoon.net has what is allegedly an exclusive interview with Jason Segel, although I’ve definitely seen that Kermit quote before. Either way, the interview focuses on Segel’s upcoming projects: I Love You, Man, Five Year Engagement, and, of course, the Muppet movie.
