But only if Muppets are involved

(Newser) – Jason Segel has made no secret of his love for Hillary Clinton, telling Us earlier this year that he wants to co-star with her ("I just feel like she would be good at comedy") and, he admitted to Jimmy Fallon last week, often joking with How I Met Your Mother fans that the mother is actually going to be played by Clinton. Turns out Clinton is in on the joke: Segel told Fallon that she actually sent him a "rejection letter" turning down his offers to work together, and yesterday Politico got a copy of the note.

"I was delighted to read about your interest in sharing the big screen with me," it reads. "As you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall … again. My only condition is that there be Muppets involved, and that is non-negotiable." Clinton is all over pop culture lately, what with her painting the town in Cartagena and getting in on her own texting meme.

Jason was on The Daily Show recently. He's a natural with comedy. He makes it look easy but it really isn't.

Evann Gastaldo need to learn sarcasm.. This is a crappy post (to be nice) simply because Clinton was being sarcastic and humorous not in any way serious, and yet Gastaldo finds the need to title this article as such to mislead you into reading it. How the hell did you get a job at Newser???
