Funnyman Jason Segel is determined to master the banjo before he wraps up the new MUPPETS movie - so he can accompany puppet frog KERMIT on beloved tune RAINBOW CONNECTION.
The keen pianist has been looking to pick up a more portable instrument and after performing ukelele tunes with Gulliver's Travels co-star Chris O'Dowd, he has now moved on to the banjo.
He tells WENN, "I did buy myself a banjo because Kermit plays the banjo. I really want to impress the puppeteers so I'm trying to learn Rainbow Connection on the banjo and one day, during one of the scenes, just say, 'Can we stop for a minute?' and pull out the banjo and start playing Rainbow Connection and get all the puppets to sing along. That's my dream."
