Am I Muppet or a man? Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of "the Muppets", are iconic characters that unite generations of fans. The feature film in 2011 was a great success and starred the whole gang of Muppets,  while the human roles were filled by Jason Segel and Amy Adams.

For the sequel, we have already learned that Ricky Gervias and Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") will star in it. Word on the street is, there is a female role still needing to be filled. That of a Russian femme fatal prison guard. But who could fill such an awesome role?

The lovely and talented Tiny Fey is reportedly in the final stages of negotiations to play the prison guard, which would make us extremely happy. Her comedic timing and natural charm make her an absolute joy to watch on-screen. Ty Burrell will be playing an Interpol agent while Gervias is playing a role described as a "dubious male lead". How fitting.

"The Muppets" sequel will take place in Europe and has no release date locked yet. We'll keep you posted as this story develops.

    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
