Disney has cast Jane Lynch, Donald Glover and Danny Trejo to join Jason Segel in The Muppets. The film will be directed by James Bobin of Flight of the Conchords fame, based on a script co-written by Nicolas Stoller and Jason Segel. Jane Lynch has been cast as a prison guard and Danny Trejo will play a prisoner. Glover's role is currently not known.
Primetime has begun to pay off for Lynch and Glover with this casting. If you have not seen Donald Glover in Mystery Team I recommend you rush out and rent it. Trejo's character is not much a stretch because he has actually spent time in prison. He is still a great addition to this ensemble cast.
The Muppets is being produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films. It has already been scheduled for release on Christmas Day, next year.
Are you excited to see this cast in The Muppets?
