Jane Lynch, Donald Glover, and Lady Gaga In THE MUPPETS Movie
The reboot of THE MUPPETS has added prime time actors to the ensemble cast; with rumors flying that Lady Gaga will make an appearance as well!
Jane Lynch, who recently won an Emmy Award for her role on Glee, has signed with the picture, along with Community star Donald Glover. Lynch will play a prison guard while Danny Trejo (Machete) will make an appearance as her prisoner. Glover’s role is still unknown.
In addition to television actors, Lady Gaga may have a cameo in the picture as well!
Co-writer Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) stated that the story line for The Muppets may be based around the idea of “Miss Piggy becoming a Lady Gaga-eque character living in Europe”, which makes the Gaga cameo rumor all the more believable.
In addition to Lady Gaga, Erick Stonestreet, John Krasinski, and Ed Helms may also make appearances in the film as well.
The Muppets is written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman from Mandeville Films producing.
The film is schedule for release on Christmas Day of 2011.
