Has Jason Segel turned The Muppets into yet another romantic comedy?

Not a chance! Check out the trailer for Green with Envy, and don't worry -- you're supposed to groan over the faux melodrama.

Jason Segel's love for Jim Henson's Muppets is so emphatic that we have faith he'd never go and do a thing like force our favorite childhood friends into a romantic comedy.

Except that's just what he did in The Muppets trailer called Green With Envy.

The poster for Green With Envy (seen here on the right)  looks nothing like what you would expect a poster for The Muppets to look like.

Only a very keen eye (squint at the yellow circle below) can make out that there is in fact one very green Jim Henson character hiding in the poster!

Jason Segel and Amy Adams (supposedly) star in the romantic comedy Green With Envy as two people searching for love -- until they are interrupted by Muppets including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and a gaggle of of their puppet friends.

Stay tuned for our full report from The Muppets set!
