Earlier this year I got to visit the set of The Muppets when the movie was filming on location in Glendale, California.   While on set I got to watch Amy Adams and Jason Segel interact with Kermit and a ton of other Muppets in an outdoor sequence involving a car.  In between filming, I participated in a group interview with director James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords).  While Bobin was extremely busy, we spoke for about ten minutes and he told us how he got involved in the project, how The Muppets Show influenced him as a child, the challenges of working with puppets rather than humans, does the film break the fourth wall, and the difficulty of composing a shot with Segel, Adams, and Kermit the Frog.  Hit the jump to either read or listen to the interview.
