Jason Segel hopes movie brings Muppets back to TV

LOS ANGELES

In "The Muppets," Jason Segel and his Muppet brother, Walter, go on a trip to Hollywood. Amy Adams, who plays Segel's love interest, is also along for the ride.

All the Muppets we know and love are also in the film. Credit that to Segel, who grew up a major Muppet admirer.

"They changed my life growing up and it broke my heart that there's a generation, 0 to 12, since the last movie was made that hasn't had a Muppet movie in their life. That's crazy," Segel said.

"The goal of making this movie was to set the stage for the Muppets to make many movies and maybe bring back the TV show some day," he said. "We have to see how this one does first."

"The Muppets" is in theaters now.
