Lady Gaga, Jane Lynch Doing Muppet Movie?
Writer (and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star) Jason Segel has already let it slip that when The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made hits theaters next Christmas, Miss Piggy will be a modern Lady Gaga-inspired character living a colorful life Europe.
As if that news isn’t thrilling enough, now comes word (from Production Weekly via Vulture) that Glee’s resident scene-stealer Jane Lynch will play a prison guard in the new Muppets movie. According to the report, her prisoner will be the haunting Machete star Danny Trejo!
Sue Sylvester herself will join an ensemble cast that will reportedly also include Office staffers John Krasinski and Ed Helms, Hangover funnyman Zach Galifianakis and Modern Family funnyman Eric Stonestreet.
We’re thinking Zach as the Swedish Chef and perhaps John as Beeker? Talk it out and share your casting recommendations in the comments.
