Ricky Gervais in Talks for "The Muppets" Sequel

Posted: December 19th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ricky Gervais in Talks for "The Muppets" SequelSubmit Comment
Ricky Gervais previously said that if his 2009 comedy "The Invention of Lying" wasn't a hit, he would quit acting in movies. The film ended up being far from a hit, but now comes word that the actor is planning to return to the big screen.

THR has learned that Gervais is in negotiations to star in Disney's "The Muppets" sequel as the lead human character. His exact role, however, has not been disclosed. Gervais actually shot a cameo for the first movie, but it ended up being cut out.

At this point, "The Muppets 2" already has Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") onboard as a lazy inspector. James Bobin, who directed the 2011 movie, is back to helm. The plan is to begin filming in January. Jason Segel will not return.

This was the same man who said that he would not do the golden globes again too. I love Ricky so this is great news for me.

The lying little git,

twilight would've been a good role he could've really got his teeth into, just look at them, you could open a tin of beans with those.

He was amusing when he trashed Hollywood, and for that, I am somewhat grateful, but he's way past his expiration date.

It's a muppet movie, so I'll watch it regardless.
