We still don’t know a whole lot about the plans for the next movie in the “Muppets” series, which is scheduled for release in late 2013. But we do know who will be playing one of the human stars: It’s Ty Burrell, from Modern Family, the Hollywood Reporter said over the weekend.
Christoph Waltz had been in talks for the same role.
All that is known about the new film is that it’s set in Europe, and that director James Bobin, co-writer Nicolas Stoller and composer Bret Mackenzie will return. And Kermit, Piggy, and Fozzie. I’ve got a feeling we’ll be seeing them again, too.
