Modern Family's Ty Burrell to star in sequel to the recently relaunched Muppets franchise.Modern Family's Ty Burrell to star in sequel to the recently relaunched Muppets franchise.

Ty Burrell, one of the stars of ABC's Modern Family, is set to join the cast of Disney's sequel to The Muppets as one of the movie’s human stars. Christoph Waltz was in talks for the role, but the Austrian actor’s schedule prevented the studio from making a deal. The adventure moves from Hollywood to Europe, and while the film is expected to have a slew of cameos -- as is the Muppets' movie tradition -- one of the key roles is an Interpol inspector, whom Burrell will portray.

International teaser poster for Muppets movie reboot shows up online.International teaser poster for Muppets movie reboot shows up online.

Word has it that the original title for this movie was to be called 'The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever' but the studios decided to shorten it to just 'The Muppets'. I like the previous title better. Here's to hoping this flick is more enjoyable than the Muppets Christmas Carol. Yech.
