The New Muppet Movie Will Involve Lady Gaga

Production Weekly's gotten wind of several big names joining big-screen franchise jump-start The Muppets, and they include Jane Lynch, Jack Black, Donald Glover, and Danny Trejo, with Paul Rudd voicing the new, iPhone-owning Muppet named Walter. Most interesting of all is the claim that Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski, and Ed Helms may appear in the film as members of Lady Gaga's entourage; does that mean we can expect a cameo from Gaga herself (already, it's been rumored that she might serve as an inspiration for Miss Piggy's diva theatrics)? Considering Gaga's predilection for wearing Muppets, Kermit should be very worried right now. [ProdWeek/Twitter]
