Last year around this time, audiences were freshly in love with the Muppets thanks to their Jason Segel-spurred resurrection with The Muppets. A blockbuster that won nearly universal praise from critics as well as the Academy Award for Best Song for "Man or Muppet," the latest Muppet movie demanded a sequel. So, Muppets director James Bobin and screenwriter Nicholas Stoller reunited to make Muppets 2 happen. This joyous news was tempered by word that Jason Segel would not be returning. However, it looks like Ricky Gervais may be taking his place.
