We Just Lizzed: Tina Fey Might Co-Star in ‘The Muppets 2’

By  · Published on January 9th, 2013

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tina Fey is close to securing a deal to play the female lead in The Muppets 2, which is speeding ahead to, you know, get made before its release later this year. If she joins, she’ll be playing a Russian gulag prison guard, which means Kermit and friends are probably going to make some mischief in Moscow.

This is the best of all possible worlds. Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell are already signed on as the stars without hands up their backsides, and Fey would be the icing (aka the best part of the cake). In other words, this would be huge.
