Just when we thought the upcoming Muppets movie couldn’t get any better — it does. The cast which currently includes Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, and Chris Cooper will get an extra dose of funny from Zach Galifianakis. The Hangover star is currently in talks to join the comedy according to a report from EW.
While out promoting his latest comedy Due Date, Galifianakis’ co-star Robert Downey Jr. spilled the beans regarding his addition to The Muppets cast via a video interview with E! Online. You can tell that the actor wasn’t really keen on revealing such information but when Downey gets going, he gets going! When EW reached out to the actor’s management for an official statement they confirmed that he is “talking about it.”
It also seems that the stint would only be for a few days, which means this might be a cameo instead of a full on supporting role. If that’s the case, we can deal with that. Every little bit helps. With that beard and those beady eyes, Galifianakis will fit right in with the Muppet crew. We can’t wait to see him and Segel go at!
Are you excited about Galifianakis joining the Muppets? Who do you think he’ll play?
