So this news pretty much makes me go all double rainbow: Jason Segel, who is writing and will be starring in a Muppets re-boot, has asked Pixar bigwigs John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, Michael Arndt, Bob Peterson and president Ed Catmull to act as consultants on how to turn this movie into a hit. These are the people who, in various combinations, were behind the Toy Story movies, Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Up, Wall-E…yeah, basically all the awesomest kids’ movies of the past 15 years.

In other news, Jason Segel is basically my perfect man. He’s hilarious, smart, tall, Jewish, loves Muppets, and is friends with Neil Patrick Harris. Jason, seriously, e-mail me. We can talk about why Nick Andopolis was so very underrated as a boyfriend.
