Tag Archive: Ty Burrell


This is getting confusing. “The Muppets…Again!” won’t have Amy Adams or Jason Segal involved. It does star Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and Ray Liotta (?) are in. Christoph Waltz was in, but then was replaced. Turns our Gervais revealed that Waltz will still appear in the film. That’s good news, even if it’s just a cameo, but the casting news is getting as confusing as “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”.

“The Muppets” starring Jason Segal and Amy Adams was one of my favorite films of 2011. But for “The Muppets 2” we’re getting a new cast of humans to join Kermit, Miss Piggy and company. Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell have already signed on. And now an actor who appeared in “Muppets in Space” is coming back. Ray Liotta. Yep. So this past week Liotta has joined a children’s movie and “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”. Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum!

“The Muppets”, which starred Jason Segal and Amy Adams in the human roles along side Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog and company was one of the pleasant surprises in 2011. Now, the sequel appears to be grabbing some top notch talent. Ty Burrell is playing an inspector and Ricky Gervais is playing one of the leads. Tina Fey is joining the sequel in the female lead, playing a Russian gulag prison guard.

“The Muppets” was a big surprise for me. Starring Jason Segal, Amy Adams, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and company it was a great film. Then news came that Segal wouldn’t return and that Christoph Waltz had left the sequel. But now that Ty Burrell is on board and news that Ricky Gervais is joining makes me a whole lot more confident in the film again. Gervais is extremely funny and I think he can bring a new brand of humor as well.

This was possibly the strangest and one of the most ill-advised films to begin its track toward the silver screen. “Switch”, which will be a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown’ began casting. John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey will play Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, who were played by Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in the original. Now, Isla Fisher is in talks to play Melanie, who was played by Jane Fonda in the original. This casting is a bit weird because this film will take place 15 years before “Jackie Brown” and yet…Fisher is older than Fonda was when “Jackie Brown” was made. Anyways, Dennis Quaid is no longer involved, but Ty Burrell and Jennifer Aniston are, although their roles haven’t been revealed yet.

Dan Schechter is writing and directing and according to CinemaBlend, the film sees Ordell and Louis become involved in a plot to kidnap a real estate developer’s wife (Aniston). When the husband refuses to pay, however, the wife and the criminals devise a plan to get revenge.

The animated film “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is doing all it can to make sure viewers are excited for this one. Stephen Colbert, Allison Janney, Ellie Kemper, Ariel Winter  and Stephen Tobolowsky have joined Ty Burrell and Max Charles to lend their voices to the cast. Rob Minkoff (“The Lion King”) is directing.
