    Inspired by this article and awesome pic from Comicsalliance- http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/11/23/muppets-movie-roles/

    What Muppets would you cast as what famous movie characters? This has been done on some level, with Disney's Muppet Star Wars toy line and Palisades' Indiana Jones Kermit (although maybe that was inspired by Muppets at Disney World).

    My pics-

    -Back to the Future, with Bunsen Honeydew as Doc Brown, Scooter as Marty McFly, and Sweetums as Biff.

    -Star Trek (2009) with Link Hogthrob as Kirk, Gonzo as Spock, Janice as Uhura, Scooter as Chekov, Fozzy as Sulu, Rowlf as Doctor McCoy, and Strangepork as Scotty.

    -Ghostbusters with Kermit as Peter Venkman, Fozzy as Ray Stanz, Honeydew as Egon Spangler, and Rowlf as Winston Zeddemore.

    Yes I have the copy of the paper, I get this delivered to my house and when I saw the entire Arts and Life section dedicated to The Muppets I was really happy

    I was just thinking, what if Disney expanded on their line of Muppet Star Wars merch? Here's my pics-

    Rowlf as Lando- Calm and collected just like Lando. Lando played a crucial role in SW ep. 5&6, and one of the oldest and most beloved Muppets deserves no less than to play a fan favorite SW character.

    Digit as Lobot- Because I just want to see Digit get some respect.

    Bobo the Bear as Boba Fett- He played the bumbling assistant to the main villain in 2 Muppet movies, and c'mom, Bobo Fett? That's gold right there.

    Scooter as Wedge Antilles- Like Scooter, Antilles is a character who rarely gets the respect he deserves, even though he appears in all 3 original SW films.

    Dr. Strangepork as Grand Moff Tarkin

    Taking a page from MCC, Statler and Waldorf as the Palpatine brothers.

    Zoot as Figrin D'an

    Dr. Teeth as Max Rebo

    Well, I think Tarentino is a Muppets fan, so maybe it'll happen.

    Here's a question Ive posed: Why cant they make a, say new york set rom-com, or an indie film that just happens to have a Muppet in it as a side character or co-star?
    The range of emotional some of these characters imbue, I could honestly see it played straight.

    There's only been two non Muppet movies that had Muppet cameos in them:
    Night at the Museum 2 and Mr Magnorium Wonder Emporium.

    A New York rom-com with a Muppet in it I could definitely see, not so much an indie film, at least not if you're talking about an actual Henson/ Disney authorized Muppet.

    I'm just disgusted that you'd compare Dr.Strangepork to Hitler

    I like that idea, it would perhaps finally inject the Muppets into best actor or actress discussion.

    I think he meant more of an evil German scientist type of villain. In the original Muppet show pilot, the pig that's obviously a Strangepork prototype kind of fills that role
