    I like the casting in this scene. I think Jane Lynch was up for the Wanda Sykes role and that Charles Grodin was intended for the Danny Trejo cameo, but I could be wrong. Works much better the way it turned out IMHO. ;)

    I'm glad I waited, but....

    I should have stayed completely off this site for the past 2 weeks.

    The trailer only caught me off guard for 10 seconds before I saw Amy Adams. I was like... "Oh great, kiddy book film. Why do they... Oh, there's Amy Adams! I know what's coming YAAAAYYYY!"

    Other than the fact I spent the entire time that was supposed to be a surprise waiting for Kermit to show up, there was no way seeing this in theaters could have been replicated by myself in a tiny room staring at a computer screen. Too bad the day was so nice that the theater I went to wasn't quite full that I couldn't get a great crowd reaction (half the reason I waited), but I spent the entire time before the movie bouncing around, excited for seeing all them dudes up on the screen. Overall, glad I waited and saw it in the proper venue.

    What's with the ugly pig in the curly wig though?

    I think that pig appears to be a member of "The Moopets", the unsuccessful Muppet tribute band that Fozzie formed in Reno, Nevada.

    Pictures of crew member merchandise on the Muppet Wiki show the members of that band and they all appear to be impersonators of classic Muppets (Piggy, Kermit, etc.).

    As for why that Piggy is with the Muppets in that scene, it could possibly be because of this plot-thread that was included in early drafts of the script:
