Puppeteer?

Why are Jason Segel and Amy Adams listed in the Muppet Puppeteers category? It isn't explained on their pages, as far as I can tell. -- Danny @Wikia (talk) 00:48, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

I guess since I'm here, EnekoR reference Amy Adams interview's about the Muppet Movie from the article by Film: blogging the real world. [1] Mostly to this quote in the interview:

Question: Jason said that he was able to become a puppeteer with some of the Muppets. Did you get to do any?

Adams: I have. Just for simple stuff.

Question: Can you say for which one?

Adams: For different ones. Just when they need somebody, you know? Today, we did it and it was funny because Jason and I both accomplished what we needed to with our Muppet, and then we forgot to act. We forgot that we were in the scene. It has its challenges.

The interview seems accurate and it just need to be reference in the article. -- Steven @Wikia (talk) 01:09, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
I guess I don't think that that necessarily qualifies them for the "Muppet Puppeteer" category. We have a picture of Paul Rudd with Roosevelt Franklin, but I don't think he counts as a puppeteer. Segel & Adams put their hands in some background puppets because it was fun, and they're the stars of the movie, so why not. But they're not "Muppet Puppeteers" in the same way that they're "Muppet Movie Actors". -- Danny @Wikia (talk) 01:19, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
The way I'm reading it, Amy Adams manipulated Muppets in scenes for the movie. Similar to how Tim Burton, John Landis and Christopher Reeve did. —Scott WikiaStaff.png (contact) 04:29, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
Actually Jason Segel is a real Muppet performer as he performed Fozzie, Dr. Teeth, Beaker, and likely others. [2] --MuppetHelper 01:57, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
