The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Academy Award winning actor Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained) has begun negotiations to join the cast of Disney's The Muppets sequel. According to the site, he'll play an Interpol inspector in the Europe set follow-up, while the studio are also said to be on the hunt for "a Russian femme fatale and a male lead whose intentions are always in question". These are expected to be the few human roles which really stand out in the film that is set to be helmed by James Bobin, who co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller. Released last year in North America, The Muppets earned $158 million worldwide and was generally praised by fans and critics alike.

At the end of the movie didn't the muppet dude and jason/amy separate from each other? I don't remember but I think that's how it went.

The Muppet sequels have always been without its fair share of continuity. Jason Segel tried to make it all seem as if it was a real act, when it was just another Muppet movie. A good one no doubt, but there will be no continuing actors.

BUT YES CHRISTOPHER WALTZ VS. GONZO. RIGHT. NOW.

I don't know how anything could top the Man or Muppet scene/song. Guess we'll see. Bring on Muppets 2!
