MUPPETS MOST WANTED

Muppets Most Wanted will whisk Kermit and his pals off to Europe next month, but first it’s making a pit stop in the U.S. for Super Bowl Sunday. The new TV spot has everything you could ask for: the whole gang, plus glimpses of human stars Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais, cameos from Danny Trejo and Tom Hiddleston, and emoticon-filled tweets from people who’ve seen some of the other trailers for the movie.

Check it out, along with a cute Toyota spot featuring Terry Crews, after the jump.

Disney Considering ‘Muppets’ Stage Show

The Muppets - Rainbow Connection

The Mouse House has had great success turning their big-screen hits into Broadway smashes in the past, with shows like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Tarzan, Mary Poppins, and The Little Mermaid. Now Kermit and Miss Piggy could be headed to the Great White Way as well.

Disney Theatrical Productions is quietly exploring the possibility of a stage production centered around the Muppets, and has gone as far as staging a 15-minute presentation at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York City. The trial was intended to test whether the puppets and puppeteers would be up for the unique challenges of a stage show — and apparently, the company was pleased with the results. More details after the jump.

The Muppets brought Jim Henson’s family-friendly crew of clever puppet characters to new audiences in 2011, and Disney is now in production on a sequel, The Muppets… Again! We know that the film features a road trip that takes the Muppets to London, and that actors Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, and Ricky Gervais play major roles.

We also know that Jason Segel and Amy Adams, the human stars of the 2011 film, won’t appear in this movie.

So what’s the story with the photo above, which is a crop of a picture taken last night during the shoot for the sequel? The picture evidently shows stand-ins for Adams and Segel, and other photos from last night’s shoot strongly suggest that Disney has recreated the end of The Muppets. While we don’t have any info about whether Adams or Segel might actually return for a cameo here, we do understand that the sequel starts just moments after the end of The Muppets. Read More »

Ray Liotta‘s best known roles haven’t exactly been family friendly. He’s still most famous for playing the lead in the gangster pic Goodfellas, was most recently seen illegal gambling ring in Killing Them Softly, and will next pop up in The Iceman to menace Michael Shannon’s hitman. Just last week, he signed on to star in Robert Rodriguez’s violent neo-noir Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

His newest project, however, will send him in the complete opposite direction. Liotta has signed on for a part in the upcoming Muppets sequel, rumored to be called The Muppets… Again. He joins a very funny human cast that also includes Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell (with a possible cameo by Christoph Waltz). More details after the jump.
