Watch a Clip from 'The Muppets' with Jason Segel's 'Bert & Ernie' Situationby: Posted:
"The Muppets" promised us no more parody trailers, and so far it's looking like they're keeping good on that promise. More than that, they're giving us more than just another trailer... we have a brand new clip to watch!
This clip from the upcoming movie gives us a glimpse at the tone that writer/star Jason Segel has given the movie, at least as far as our protagonists are concerned. The operative word is "cheery." Gary and his puppet pal Walter are beyond excited to go to Los Angeles and see the Muppet Studios.
Of course, considering what we know about the plot of the movie, chances are pretty good that when they get there, it's not going to be as magical as they hoped it would be. So the whole movie won't be this cheerful, just these characters and their small-town, rose-colored view of the world.
Gary and Walter's living situation is kind of adorable though, isn't it? Like Bert and Ernie, they have matching twin beds and their bathroom even has matching sinks.
