Paul Rudd - Rudd Misses Out On Muppets Movie

PAUL RUDD is bitterly disappointed after missing out on the chance to appear in his pal JASON SEGEL's upcoming MUPPETS movie, because he desperately wanted to join the star-studded cast.
Segel has recruited Jack Black, Amy Adams, Zach Galifianakis, Emily Blunt and Ricky Gervais to star in the upcoming project, based on the original Jim Henson tales involving beloved characters Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear.
Rudd was hoping to join his I Love You, Man co-star in the family-friendly film, but admits he hasn't landed a part.
He says, "I wish that I was (going to be in the film). It's all rumour. I wanted to be in it, and I talked to Jason, but I think there was some things that happened and I don't know if I'm gonna get to do it."
Now the funnyman is trying to convince Segel to cast him in a sequel, adding: "I'm hoping for the Muppet Movie 2..."
