For all of those who were hopeful for a Jason Segel and Paul Rudd reunion in the new Muppets movie, it’s our sad duty to report that will not be happening.

Despite rumblings that Paul would voice an iPhone-loving Muppet, the I Love You, Man star spoke with MTV recently and squashed that rumor (along with our dreams):

“I wish that I was [in it]. It’s all rumor. 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.”

But Paul insists to not give up hope just yet, joking:

“I’m hoping for the Muppet Movie 2. I’m playing Charles Grodin in Muppet 2: Electric Waterloo?’ Beaker-loo?”

Even without Paul, the new Muppets movie is shaping up to be quite the star-studded cast with the likes of Jack Black, Emily Blunt and Zack Galifianakis (to name a few).

Are you as bummed as we are at this news? Or is there enough star power to keep your interest? Let us know in the comments!
