After their somewhat triumphant return in 2011's The Muppets, the titular gang is back for the sequel. And if the first new film was a little too interested in nostalgically making the audience like the characters again, the new film lets them have an adventure. And it's mostly fun, if a little lumpy and maybe a smidge too long.

The best part of covering a muppet movie is knowing that you're going to get free comedy when you talk to the cast and crew, and Muppets Most Wanted is no different. Here Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell were seated next to Kermit the Frog, Sam Eagle, Constantine and Miss Piggy, who -- as always -- was fashionably late.

With Steve Carell out of The Office, there's a hole to fill and it's unknown who's going to take his place. Will Ferrell is completing an arc this season, but he's a big-time movie star, so it's unlikely he'll stick around. Ricky Gervais and Will Arnett have been tapped to be in the finale, but Arnett has set up another NBC show, so it's unlikely he'll come back. That would leave Gervais...

Ricky Gervais Returning to Host 2011 Golden Globes

Published by

Last year when it was announced that Ricky Gervais was set to host the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards everyone thought the show would be hilarious. But instead of humor we got (what seemed like) a few alcohol induced ramblings and cheap shots at the audience. The reviews of his performance were mixed and it kind of made us long for the good old days when there wasn't a host. Unfortunately,...

Something about Judd Apatow’s film Funny People got me thinking. The director pretty much gathered some of the most popular comedic talents he could find with all different types of skills and demeanors and put them in the same movie.
