    I'm sure this is nothing more than a rumor, but I wouldn't mind Lindsay Lohan being in the sequel. Just the fact that there's talk about a sequel is a good sign. :)

    Bare in mind this source is "showbizspy.com" It's a gossip site that I'm sure can be very easily ripped apart, lol.

    Did you know that headsets are a good way to prevent harmful radiation from messing with your head? Just don't sit your cellphone in your lap, that's a whole other problem right there.

    Um, no. If this actually happened, the fabric that holds the Universe together would be torn asunder.

    Why would I want to see a fake, phony, lifeless object acting with living breathing celebrities like the Muppets? All kidding aside, I know she is trying to make a comeback but watching her on Saturday Night Live was just sad. She doesn't look right even. Back in the day when she started acting I could almost have bought her appearing in a Muppet movie...maybe she can play a villian...she'd make a great evil oil baron.

    Yeah, I think that's why she posed for Playboy here a few months ago: she's washed up as an actress, but figured people still think she has a hot bod, so she decided to do a magazine spread because hey, that would sure save any celebrity's career, wouldn't it?

    Funnily enough, I remember here years ago when there was going to be a movie remake of the classic sitcom I Dream of Jeannie: she was supposed to be Jeannie, and Jimmy Fallon was supposed to be Major Tony Nelson... I think that casting alone is the reason why the movie was never made, and thank God it wasn't... the Bewitched remake was already an insult to that series, remaking Jeannie would've been a double-whammy.

    BTW... why in the world did they bring in Lindsay to host SNL anyway? Was Lorne Michaels feeling okay?

    I can't imagine it was anything more than a ratings grab. "TUNE INTO SNL THIS SATURDAY TO SEE IF LINDSAY LOHAN CAN MAKE IT THROUGH 90 MINUTES OF LIVE TELEVISION" sort of thing.

    True... kind of like back when she hosted in 2004... mainly because that's when everybody was talking about how seemingly un-naturally large her breasts developed at such a young age...

    HERMOINIE: That magic isn't working.
    RON: I'm going to disagree on that, the magic IS working, please, don't stop...

    I'm sure she'll star in the new movie. When pigs fly.

    Wait a minute . . . .

    Totally. We don't even have the barest thread of a plot idea, let alone who's going to be in it. And, let's say, she was written into the script... how many cameos were supposedly written in for this last film that weren't in it? Lady Gaga, Vince Vaugn, Jane Lynch... all were supposed reported cameos that weren't even in the script (though Vince was supposedly in the first draft of the script that involved the movie Swingers).

    Still, I can't blame Lindsay. You know who's a hot actor now? Robert Downey Jr. Someone who got into drugs and had a very very dramatic career spiral downhill, we thought we'd never see him again. Then came something that lead to Iron Man, and he's like in everything now. Every celebrity is worthy of a second chance. Heck, Mel Gibson even bounced back from the anti-semetic remarks he made when he was drunk driving. Just... not that second time. Lindsay threw her career away when she was partying with bad influences like Paris Hilton (Lindsay's father wasn't a prize to begin with, though... her entire family's a freak show that was just leeching off her success). As long as she actually tries hard this time and actually stays clean and shows up, she has the ability to bring herself back.

    Just... I don't think this is the right movie.

    No! Borples! Number one Muppet rule! Never insult Miss Piggy anymore than you would a king, queen, or president!

    Agreed. And if there's even a shred of truth to the "source's" claim that she even joked about a scene involving meeting Miss Piggy in rehab, that shows (a) she's not taking her recovery seriously and (b) she doesn't recognize the Muppets don't delve into that kind of humour.

    Saw her in The Parent Trap on TV a couple of weeks ago...I still can't believe the sad spirals her life took in the following 14 years. Part of me would love to see her redeem herself with a great Muppet movie cameo (the Robert Downey Jr. comparison is a good one) but I'd hate to see her situation overshadow the movie itself.

    I agree. And Miss Piggy? In rehab? That's way to declasse for her
  17. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Back when she was prepared to be a coffee pig just to get on TV, then maybe she would have hit rehab if it had made her more famous....But the whole 'rehab for publicity' thing is actually well over now, and when people go there, its more damaging than healthy for their careers.

    Plus, Piggy doesn't have any real flaws that would land her in rehab. Even her frog-stalking has been more mutual these days.

    Ah, but you guys are forgetting something... in the previous movie, Animal was at an anger management facility, which, in a way, is kind of like a rehab facility, just not for drugs and alcohol and such.

    I hope that wasn't enough to invoke her wrath; otherwise, I beg the Pig's pardon. When the Muppets were on SNL with Jason Segel, her response to pigs flying was one of my favorite things. "I believe that pigs can fly..." "First class!" :)

    So, I find it encouraging that here's someone trying to make a comeback. And the first thing she thinks of? Muppet movie! The whole thing is ridiculous, but at least people are thinking Muppets.

    I just don't see a Piggy in rehab joke. I can't. Out of all the Muppets, she's the least likely one to be there. After all, she was in the best situation of all the Muppets (probably not emotionally) in the movie, and true to that stale old joke, Piggy would go off the wagon with food, not drugs or alcohol. If that were to happen in a Muppet movie, Piggy would be in Weight Watchers or Over-eaters Anonymous, not rehab.

    Lindsay wasn't the greatest actress of all time, but she had a career and threw it away. Whether it have been pressure of too much too soon or just having a BAD father or whatever... she tossed a career away and she blew off multiple opportunities to try to come back. SNL was her attempt to actually seize an opportunity to get back out there, they didn't kittyfoot around her problems, and it proves she does deep down want to change what she was. For her sake, that had better be true and she better stick to it.

    Think of it this way... the voice of beloved Kid's favorite Buzz Lightyear had cocaine problems decades ago. There is always hope for them.
