Peter Serafinowicz Joins THE MUPPETS... AGAIN!; Tina Fey On Playing The Russian "Villain"
Serafinowicz, best known for voicing Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, reveals that he has joined the cast of Disney's upcoming Muppets sequel. Additionally, Tina Fey discusses playing the Russian "villain" in the Europe caper.
Couple of news pieces for Disney's The Muppets... Again! here. First up, in an interview with Huffington Post, recent Golden Globes co-host Tina Fey talks about her role as 'Nadya' (described as "a Russian gulag prison guard") in the anticipated Europe-set sequel, saying that she actually plays a "good guy" who may seem like a villain. She also touches on working with a Russian accent. "I actually play a Russian good guy, kind of. Who knows? Maybe she seems like the bad guy. But just before I called you I was on Skype with a dialect coach. And I was like, "Oh my gosh, this is for real. I have to try and do this!" ... they offered it, and I was like, "Yeah, great!" I think that's a fun thing to do and try to practice." For Fey's full interview with the site, click the link back to Huffington Post.
