‘Modern Family’ Star Ty Burrell to Appear in ‘The Muppets 2’
He’s not the first guy from TV’s ‘Modern Family’ to feature in a Muppets movie, but Ty Burrell won’t just have a cameo in upcoming sequel, The Muppets 2. Instead, he’ll be filling one of the key roles in the film, that of an Interpol inspector.
Jason Segel co-wrote and starred in the 2011 original but will not return for its sequel. Director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller will be taking part however, with the former now on co-writing duties. We can expect a slew of cameos to frame Burrell’s performance.
The Emmy-winning actor has recently worked on ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ in the lead role, and will shoot indies ‘The Skeleton Twins’ and ‘Switch’ in the new year.
