Meet The Newest Muppet

Say hello to Walter, one of the lead characters of Jason Segel’s new take on the Muppets, which is to be called just The Muppets. Reports say that Seth Rogen will be voicing Walter, giving the actor another notch in his now-extensive voice-over belt (the others being Monsters and Aliens and Paul). Here’s the description of Walter, from Entertainment Weekly (source of the image):

“Walter, a sweet, slightly naive twenty-something Everypuppet who, in the movie, is the best friend and roommate of Segel’s character, Gary. Both Gary and Walter are die-hard Muppet fans. ‘Walter is the kind of guy who faints when he sees Kermit,’ Bobin says. Of course, Walter’s Muppet fandom is complicated by the fact that he is a Muppet himself. ‘Walter has a little bit of a self-confidence issue because he’s the only person like him that he’s seen aside from the Muppets,’ Segel explains. ‘His dream is to meet the Muppets and be around people who are like him.’”
