List of potential "very special guest stars" if the Muppet Show were to return...

    In no particular order, and some of these people may not be guest stars I'd particularly want on the show but it would happen anyway:

    1. Matt Smith (the current Doctor on Doctor Who)
    2. Jason Segel (of course)
    3. Dr. Ken Jeong
    4. Zach Galafinakis
    5. Bradley Cooper
    6. Ed Helms
    7. Megan Fox
    8. Mickey Rourke
    9. David Tennant (the previous Doctor)
    10. Beavis and Butt-Head, and for anybody who argues this one, Alice Cooper hosted the original show first of all and second of all, if B&B can interview Snooki on Jimmy Kimmel, they can do this. I figure they'd sneak in after doing some kind of unrepairable damage to the planned guest star.
    11. The Rock
    12. Jason Bateman
    13. Betty White
    14. Jamie Foxx
    15. "Weird Al" Yankovic
    16. Selena Gomez
    17. Zac Efron
    18. Angus T. Jones

    Feel free to add to the list, folks!

    There's not a ton of people I'd be interested in seeing, but after the film I would recommend Jim Parsons, lol.

    I feel like the list of potential guest hosts for if the Muppets ever did start up another show could be endless, and I'm sure everyone would be clawing to have a chance to be on it. However, here would be the top of my list for people I'd love to see do sketches with the Muppets:

    Tom Hanks, Jason Segel (no duh), Emma Stone, Stanley Tucci, Steve Buscemi, Meryl Streep, Neil Patrick Harris, Anthony Stewart Head, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, and David Tennant.

    I personally think an "edgy" guest star in the vein of Alice Cooper would be the way to go...Eminem for example. In a dream world, and this is dreaming, the ultimate guest for me would be Bill Murray :)

    I agree with Tom Hanks, Segel, Stone and Tennant. Neil Patrick Harris and Head would be neat too.

    I just thought of one that would be hilarious...

    Tommy Wisseau (sp) of "The Room". I was watching the Nostalgia Critic's review of that film and I thought, wouldn't it be funny if this guy worked with The Muppets on something? I can imagine him saying to Rowlf, "Oh, hai doggy!" :laugh:

    Ellen DeGeneres and "Weird Al" Yankovic are definitely my top two choices. Other performers I'd like to have seen are Loreena McKennitt and Enya, and maybe Celtic Woman.

    I just thought of something - I would love if a new Muppet Show, in addition to Very Special Guest Stars, had cameos of famous people actually playing roles within the show, the same way 30 Rock will have Conan playing himself but have Steve Buscemi show up as a character. I feel like there's a ton of potential there.
