The Hollywood Reporter reports that the puppetlike Ty Burrell is set to star as a human Interpol agent in the upcoming Europe-set, Jason Segel–less Muppets sequel (2 Muppets 2 Furious?). It's a part that Christoph Waltz had to back out of because of scheduling conflicts (and because he was scaring all the kids.) Burrell should be a natural on set — for years he's been acting against Luke Dunphy, a character who's basically a teenage Fozzie Bear without the hat and stand-up aspirations.
