Jane Lynch and Zach Galifianakis join Jason Segel in Muppet movie
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Jane Lynch (TV’s GLEE), Zach Galifianakis (DUE DATE), Jack Black, Danny Trejo (MACHETE) and Donald Glover will be joining Jason Segel in the new Muppet movie from Disney. Lynch will play a prison guard, Trejo will play the prisoner (big surprise-that’s his MO these days), Galifianakis will play a character named Hobo Jo and Black and Glover will be along as well. These actors will join a cast that already includes Amy Adams and Chris Cooper and will be directed by James Bobin.
As with all of the Muppet movies, I’m sure cameo roles will be rolling in left and right. Production Weekly has also mentioned that Lady Gaga will be in there with an entourage that includes Eric Stonestreet, Ed Helms and John Krasinski and I’m sure the news will just keep coming. The film is set for theatrical release on December 25, 2011.
