Jane Lynch, Donald Glover and Danny Trejo have signed on to the cast of Disney’s The Muppets movie.
Lynch, who won an Emmy for Glee this year, will play a prison guard, while Glover (Community) and Trejo’s (Machete) roles have yet to be announced.
The trio joins star Jason Segel, who also co-wrote the script with Nicolas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). The film, which is directed by James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords), is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2011.
The Muppett movies have always been intended for the younger audience, but with a cast like this, will you be tuning in to Kermit and Miss Piggy’s escapades this time around?
