New Muppets Cameo And Set Visit Photos, Plus Voice Of Walter Revealed
At the rate it's going, the next muppet movie, titled simply The Muppets, is going have every single actor in Hollywood make a cameo. And why not? Everybody loves the muppets and as long as its not distracting, why not make some dreams come true? Today we have yet another addition to the long, long list of cameos, the revelation of who will voice the new muppet, Walter, and a couple of new set photos.
First off, let's get the cameo out of the way, shall we? Foo Archive (via Bleeding Cool) has gotten a scan of Kerrang Magazine, which reveals that Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl will make an appearance in the film. According to the site, Grohl will play a stand-in for Animal with Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem while everyone's favorite wild and crazy muppet attends anger management counseling.
Next, Jason Segel recently spoke to MTV where he revealed that Peter Linz will be providing the voice of Walter. Who is Peter Linz, you may ask? Linz is Walter's puppeteer, and, according to Segel, every muppet will be voiced by their handler. The actor/writer also said that it's unlikely that we'll see the film in 3D, as the "goal is make it like the 1970s, early '80s Muppet movies." He says the he may end up being wrong, but he personally doesn't want it.
Lastly, we have a few new photos from the set of the film, courtesy of The Fab Life. Showing off Amy Adams in period garb and Segel and Walter dressed to the nines in some awesome blue suits, my excitement for this film can't get any greater. November 23, 2011 can't get here soon enough.
