Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones Playing with 'Muppets'
A little over a week ago we heard Amy Adams was in the process of considering a trio of different roles. Now we have word on her officially joining at least one of the previously reported projects as EW reports she has chosen to star in The Muppets (apparently this is the working title for the time being), the newest film to feature Jim Henson's trademark puppet characters. In addition, Heat Vision also discovered Chris Cooper (The Town) and Rashida Jones (I Love You, Man) will also star alongside star Jason Segel in the film. Below you'll find information on all the characters these new cast members will play in the new film.
The story for this new flick written by Segel and Nicholas Stoller (director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek) follows a reunion of the Muppets to put on a show in order to save a movie studio. Segel is playing the lead human character with Adams taking the role of his girlfriend who joins him in his quest to gather the Muppets. Meanwhile, Cooper plays a greedy villain who aims to buy the studio just to dig for oil buried underneath it and apparently has never found the Muppet gang to be funny at all. Finally, Jones takes the role of an ABC executive. Hopefully director James Bobin ("Flight of the Conchords") will give the Muppets a triumphant return to the big screen after an eleven year absence following Muppets from Space. Excited?

Script was super mediocre - hopefully Pixar's input helped. Great casting with Cooper
