Ricky Gervais Meets The Muppets

I do love The Muppets and I sometimes have a hard time listing anyone I find funnier than Ricky Gervais. So the idea of Ricky Gervais teaming up with The Muppets is more than a little appealing to me.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

"The follow-up movie to the 2011 hit, which starts production in January, is a European-centric adventure. And while the film will be populated by a slew of cameos, there are three main human roles. THR reported Dec. 7 that Ty Burrell, one of the stars of ABC's Modern Family, is on board as a lazy Interpol inspector.
Gervais, however, would play the lead -- as much as one can be a lead opposite Kermit, Fozzie and Miss Piggy -- with his stature being compared to the role played by Jason Segel in the 2011 movie. But the nature of Gervais' character is unknown because the script is being kept secret. Also unclear is whether the part calls for singing, a requirement for the first movie (but here's hoping)."
Now if Karl Pilkington can score a cameo this may have a chance of being my favorite movie of all time...
