As if the new Muppet movie wasn’t going to be awesome enough already, the possible addition of Zach Galifianakis simply shoots this movie into the atmosphere (it has a breathing apparatus, don’t worry). The movie is brought to you by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, the brains behind the amazing Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Segel stars alongside a new muppet named Walter and they have to save the muppet studios. Sounds potentially amazing right? Also joining him are my absolute two favorite actresses that work today: Amy Adams and Rashida Jones (seriously, if I had to choose between the two of them I would pull a reverse Solomon and split myself). And someone decided to throw in Chris Cooper to make it epic. Now we hear that Galifianakis might have a part in it as well? The internet needs to invent a new word to describe the level of awesome/epic/win that this movie will have.
FUN RANDOM FACT: Besides appearing in this new Muppet movie together, what do Amy Adams and Rashida Jones have in common? They both played characters who dated Jim Halpert on The Office.
Of course, they could easily kill my dreams, as this hasn’t been officially decided yet. In fact, the only reason we know about it is because Robert Downey Jr. let it slip during a press junket for Due Date with E! Online. Go ahead and watch the video. Pure hilarity. You can see Zach’s eyes widen and dart over to the interviewer and the expression behind the beard was pure: “Oh shit, I can’t believe you just said that RDJ! That wasn’t supposed to be out! Panic! Maybe the reporter didn’t hear that particular bit of very important casting news” And then RDJ was just like “Boo ya, I don’t care, I make announcements on my own terms biotch!” RDJ rolls like that, son.
With this happening and his accidental inclusion in a reverse between two-ferns, Galifianakis is not having the best of times with these press junkets.
