Zach Galifianakis Might Get a Cameo in Disney's 'The Muppets'
Is it just me or does it feel like Zach Galifianakis is in pretty much everything. Yes, he's funny, but we're starting to get to an overload point, I think. How about yet another movie he'll be in? Entertainment Weekly says that Galifianakis is likely to join the cast of The Muppets, the upcoming Jason Segel-written, James Bobin-directed revival of the beloved Jim Henson puppets. His manager told EW that they're "talking about it" which means it's not confirmed, but I'm sure it'll happen, as he's the perfect guy to show up in this. The Playlist found another report adding that he will be shooting for a few days, presumably for only a cameo.
The cast of Jason Segel's The Muppets movie already includes a few great actors: Segel in the lead, Amy Adams as his girlfriend, Rashida Jones (The Social Network) and Chris Cooper. The film has a Hollywood focus as it follows the Muppets as they try to save their studio from a greedy oil baron (Cooper) who wants to dig for oil. Segel will play the lead who reunites the Muppets for one last show to save the studio. Sounds like it will be a fun movie and I hope they get a solid line-up of actors for cameos beyond just Galifianakis, especially since his appearance is now expected. Glad to see this coming together, we'll keep you updated!
