New Photos of ‘Muppets’ and ‘Pirates’

Jason Segel? Johnny Depp? Fuzzy, cuddly muppets? This is my lucky day. Disney released photos from two highly anticipated fun films, Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Muppets; and those of us who are chomping at the bit to see the films when they finally grace our local theaters with their presence can enjoy a little amuse-bouche to tie us over for now.

First up a photo of the film’s star and writer, Segel, palling around with Kermit and Miss Piggy. This was probably right before the joy of meeting Kermit in person brought him to big manly, crocodile tears. (This is a true story. I’ll pause while you say “awwwww.”)

Also making the rounds on the interwebs is an unofficial set photo of Amy Adams dancing with her Muppets co-star, Segel. I guess there must be something so romantic about spending 12 hours a day with muppets. (The weird thing is that I’m mostly serious.)

Now for the action. Disney’s released a few photos of their prized character, Jack Sparrow as he and his cohort, Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) navigate some murky waters and giant pieces of lettuce (?). Are you stoked? Well, that’s awesome, but you still have to wait until May.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
