Lady Gaga, Paul Rudd set to join 'Muppets' movie

She's already worn a Kermit the Frog dress, and now Lady Gaga is going to get even closer to the real thing: The pop superstar is set to join the world's most famous amphibian in the new Muppet movie.

New York magazine's Vulture reports that Production Weekly has learned about a slew of celebrities slated to appear in the upcoming "The Muppets." "The Office" stars John Krasinski and Ed Helms will reportedly play members of Gaga's entourage, while Jane Lynch, Jack Black, Donald Glover and Danny Trejo will also have roles.

Actor Paul Rudd will be part of the film too, although Vulture reports that he will provide the voice of Walter, the iPhone-loving Muppet who is roommates with Gary, a human character played by "How I Met Your Mother" star Jason Segel.

Segel, who co-wrote the script for "The Muppets," tells Entertainment Weekly, "Walter has a little bit of a self-confidence issue because he's the only person like him that he's seen aside from the Muppets. His dream is to meet the Muppets and be around people who are like him."

Walter may get his wish: The plot of the film – set to open Christmas 2011 - centers on Gary and Walter attempting to stop the demolition of the Muppet Theater by reuniting Kermit and the gang for a big song-and-dance show.

    Thanks for your handy post. Over time, I have been able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the actual build up of fluid regarding the lining of the lung and the chest muscles cavity. The sickness may start within the chest location and distribute to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include weight-loss, severe respiration trouble, vomiting, difficulty taking in food, and swelling of the face and neck areas. It must be noted that some people existing with the disease will not experience just about any serious signs and symptoms at all.

    It's funny how people hate on Lady Gaga... because if you really detest her then you should just IGNORE her. Do you see me going to church and hating on the super right wing Christian idiots? No. Why? Because I just IGNORE them.

    On the bright side, maybe Lady Gaga can brush up on her spelling and word skills while she is on Sesame Street. She always comes across as a blithering idiot during interviews, not to mention a liberal stooge.

    Probably a good thing Lynch isn't joining the movie. Miss Piggy would never tolerate having another lesbian around.

    Sounds good. A Gaga cameo would be amazing but it's all rumors at this point. Jane Lynch already denied being attached to this project.
