Christoph Waltz was set to star in the new Muppet movie, but due to scheduling conflicts he pulled out of the project. Good news Muppet fans! The lack of a lead human actor does not mean the movie is canceled. Instead the good folks at the Muppet Studios signed Ty Burrell for the movie. Burrell will play an Interpol agent. He is most known for his role on Modern Family and is a skilled comedian. Not much has been revealed about the script, but shooting is scheduled to start soon.
