It's just been a few days since we reported that THE MUPPETS would be getting another movie rather quickly but we didn't know at the time if Jason Segel would return or not, but now we do. Collider has reported that Segel will not return for the next movie.
Here's what Segel told Collider;
"My goal was to bring The Muppets back and I did that leaving them in very good hands, my writing partner and James Bobin the director. All I wanted to do was to set the stage for them to do whatever they wanted. I did what I set out to do, and now I wanna pursue more human-related projects. I’m sure I’ll return in some capacity here and there, but that was half a decade of my life. Five years of hard work. I’m ready for a little puppet break.”I'm ok with Segel not returning, I just love The Muppets back on the big screen!
