    In the new issue of TV Guide (the fall preview issue) there is a mention of the new Muppet Christmas movie. It says:

    And this Christmas offers a special treat for Muppet fans: the gang's first TV-movie. NBC's Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (December) follows Kermit the Frog as he joins forces with an eccentric angel (David Arquette) sent by God (Whoopi Goldberg) to save the Muppet Theater from the evil landlord (Joan Cusack). Kermit calls upon his friends to stage a spectacular Christmas show. Snoop Dogg, Carson Daly and the cast of Scrubs make cameo appearances. Look for spoofs of It's A Wonderful Life and Moulin Rouge..

    Awesome. I can't wait for this movie.

    Heh, it does indeed sound like something to see. I see it going either 1 of 2 ways; an offbeat obscure movie that ties together well and is funny for all, or a total disarrayed piece of garbage with useless guest stars and cameos. Soon, we shall all find out. :D

    She can't even play the "Squares" very good!

    Oy, enough Whoopi. (Wait, that can be taken wrong).

    er, uh, yeah, no more watching Whoopi (darn it, that's not good either)!

    OK, I have it, Whoopi is boring. (Aaaaa, DOH!!)

    Another season, another reason for making (fun of) Whoopi.

    No No honey, I said she can't even play the squares well.
    But she'll be leaving them soon.

    Squares are cool and I am a square!

    Waaaaaiiiiit a second....how the heck did Joan Cusack get the theater? Where the heck is J. P. Grosse? Why the heck are they trying to cover up Scooter, huh?

    Great! Scrubs....NBC PROMO!!!!! NBC PROMO!!!! Heeeeee- eeellll-eeellllpppppp!!!! Can't say I care for the guest stars (except Woopie)

    I hope this can bring fans out of the MFS and KSY doldroms ( I'm probably the only one here who like MFS)

    Not sure if the xmas NBC movie fits into "Muppet story continuum", so it could be a stand alone piece that doesnt fit in with the established JP Grosse storyline.

    Besides that, isn't there potentially a difference between land owner and land lord?

    Don't know if it's a typo or not...

    but they mentioned this movie in Entertainment Weekly's Fall TV Preview, and they said that another Cusack would be in the movie.

    Of course, I speak of John Cusack, he of "Better Off Dead" and "Say Anything" fame. Any word on whether he'll be in the movie as well, or is Joan the lone Cusack?

    Something tells me the Guide was wrong. I think the lone Joan was the only Cusack to be thrown the Muppet X-Mas movie bone (hehe, I'm a rapper..:))

    John was in two of my fav. movies, "Gross Pointe Blank" and "Bullets Over Broadway." Two films that are both very very funny. :)

    You know...J.P. Grosse's nose is red. Maybe he hit the bottle pretty bad.

    And did anyone else notice that he had a small cameo in MTI?

    You know, it's possible (speaking of the owner/landlord relationship) that one could own the theater, and the other one couild be the realtor who acts in the owner's intrest. Maybe J.P. is still the owner, but Joan acts as the owner while J.P. is away, or vice versa.
