    I bought the blu ray finally, and I still cant see the darn thing as it turns out my blu ray player I thought I had installed was bunk. Is there anywhere the featurettes/deleted scenes can be downloaded online(now that I legally own it)

    This needs to happen some time be it the next movie or whenever...course i'd be just as happy with Saunders/Lumley showing up as different characters...or even French & Saunders wreaking havoc in Muppetland.

    Heck, if they could do it for The Storyteller, the Muppets definately need a turn!

    I dunno about you, but I'd love to see John Cleese in the film again. And they really should try to get Charles Grodin to do a cameo as Nicky Holiday like they wanted for the last movie.

    I can't help but ponder the comedy gold of a bombed Pats and Eddie with the Muppets!!

    Christoph Waltz couldn't make it, so Ty Burrell is going to be in that role.

    WOW! For a second time, Ty shows up when other actors don't. The other time being Mr. Peabody in the upcoming movie when Robert Downy Jr. backed out. it's a shame that he's kinda Mr. second choice, but he's clearly going to be a laugh riot in this film.

    And wouldn't you know? As I'm typing this, a Ty Burrell voiced commercial for Fios is on TV. Dude's everywhere.

    Disappointing about Waltz, but Burrell is an excellent second choice. He can definitely do both deadpan delivery of jokes and physical comedy, both of which are probably going to be all over the place in this movie. I hope we get some more casting news soon.

    YES! YES!!
    I really wanted him in the last movie as a cameo, but I guess this is even better! He's hilarious! Will be an excellent addition to the already crazy and zany Muppet movie.

    I really had no idea who Waltz was and I don't know who Burrell is either but the fact he was on Sesame Steeet makes me think he'll fit in just fine! :)

    He plays Phil Dunphy in Modern Family, I don't know if you watch that show, but he's definatley one of the funniest characters in the show. Watch an episode of it.

    I think he'll fit in just fine. He can be very Muppety. :)

    Ty Burrell could be one of the best casting choices for any Muppet production in the past 15 years. I've enjoyed his work on Modern Family since his debut - not only is he great at physical comedy and pratfalls but he has this wonderful sly wit that pops out when you least expect it. And he takes lines that have absolutely no business being funny and makes them hilarious.

    He'd be a great fit for the new movie no matter what role he plays. Getting even more excited as I type this... :):):)

    Nope I don't watch Modern Family. It's actually quite sad in general I have cable but barely watch it. :o That's why up until last year I had no idea who Jason Segal was. But I saw the clip of him on Sesame and yep I can see why he got the job. :)

    MAN GUYS CAN YOU BELIEVE NEXT MONTH?!! THEIR GONNA BE FILMING!!! YAHOO!!!

    I hope Walter doesn't play a major role in this. <_< Pepe and Rizzo deserve some screen time.
