'The Muppets' Adds 'Inglourious Basterds' Til Schweiger
While the real stars of The Muppets weren't exactly human, the film did have a healthy share of celebrity cameos. Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, Don Glover, Zach Galifianakis, and Jack Black were among the many, many actors who had a part in the movie. The upcoming sequel doesn't seem like it's breaking that trend, with casting news coming in on almost a weekly basis. So far, Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrel, and possibly Christoph Waltz and Ray Liotta are scheduled to make appearances.
According to a recent report from Bleeding Cool, we can now add German actor Til Schweiger to that list. The actor is best known for his role as Hugo Stiglitz in Inglorious Basterds, although he'd presumably be playing a slightly more family friendly part in The Muppets...Again.
There's no word yet on who his character is, but if Christoph Waltz ends up making the cast as well, it could be a fun mini-Basterds reunion.
