It has been confirmed that MODERN FAMILY star and comedy genius Ty Burrell is to replace Christoph Waltz in the upcoming MUPPETS sequel.
Ty will be taking over the role of an Interpol agent who follows the Muppet gang as they travel across Europe. With filming reportedly starting next month, this switch is a little last minute, but sources say that Waltz had scheduling issues and wasn’t able to commit to the project. However, director James Bobin and Oscar-winning score-master Bret McKenzie will both return, alongside newbie Burrell.
We reported back in March that Jason Segel would not be returning for the sequel; so, is THE MUPPETS 2 falling apart already? Or do you think Burrell is a suitable replacement for Waltz? Let us know what you think!
