Exclusive: Jason Segel and Amy Adams Talk THE MUPPETS at CinemaCon; Plus Watch as I Call Adams Miss Lane

     March 29, 2011

Jason Segel and Amy Adams Talk THE MUPPETS slice CinemaCon

Shortly after Disney’s presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas ended, I got to talk to Jason Segel and Amy Adams backstage about The Muppets.  While Disney has yet to release any footage from one of my most anticipated films of 2011, during the presentation, they showed a number of clips and everything looked great.  While it might have taken a number of years for The Muppets to make another movie, I really think audiences are ready to see Kermit and friends.

Anyway, while I only had a few minutes, Segel talked about finally getting the opportunity to make the movie and what the Muppets mean to him, Adams talked about how Kermit and Segel sent her a DVD asking her to be in the film, and I asked them both what is their go to karaoke song.

But I’ve left out my favorite part.  As the interview began, instead of just saying hi, I said, “nice to see Mr. Segel and Miss. Lane.”  In case you didn’t know, Adams is playing Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman movie.  Also, as the interview ended, I told her how happy I was that she got the part and you can watch her reaction.  Hit the jump to watch:
