Christoph Waltz Might Be In MUPPETS Sequel After All

Although Christoph Waltz was originally set to play a major role in the soon-to-shoot sequel to last year’s The Muppets but a hitch in his scheduling for his appearance in another film lead to director James Bobin to cast Ty Purell instead.

But it appears as if Waltz still might have a chance to appear opposite Kermit and the gang in the new film after all. It just won’t be as big a part as originally planned. Speaking to Collider, Waltz explained –

I was talking about it again today but it might nor be a proper part, it might be one of these little what they call cameos… I was looking forward to meeting Miss Piggy. But they told me that dancing with Miss Piggy, for example, is almost impossible because she’s totally operated by puppeteers and dancing is, you have to dance with someone where there’s actually a real person inside so let’s see who I dance with.

Dancing with Miss Piggy? Hopefully, the cameo appearance won’t preclude him from appearing in a future Muppets film. It didn’t for Ricky Gervais.

The as-yet-untitled Muppets sequel starts shooting early next year for a late 2013 release.
