The Muppets 2 Adds Ray Liotta
Ray Liotta has joined the growing cast of The Muppets 2, for director James Bobin and Walt Disney Pictures. The actor's role was not revealed, although this project marks a reunion, of sorts. Ray Liotta played a gate guard in 1999's Muppets from Space.
The story will take The Muppets all across Europe on a new caper adventure. Ty Burrell stars as an Interpol inspector, with Tina Fey portraying the female lead, a guard at a Russian gulag prison. Ricky Gervais also stars, although his role has not yet been identified. The Muppets star Jason Segel is not returning, although the entire Muppet clan including Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy will be back.
