Charles Grodin before
Charles Grodin now
MTV Movies Blog reports that actor Charles Grodin who appeared in leading roles in such films as “Midnight Run” with Robert Deniro and the “Beethoven” series a family film about a father who hates owning a dog is making a return to the Muppet movie series by appearing in a cameo in the next one. Charles Grodin played the leading role in “The Great Muppet Caper” playing the role as Nicky Holiday.
The writer for the next Muppet film Jason Segel wrote a cameo strictly for Charles Grodin, he didn’t quite say if he is reprising the role of Nicky Holiday or not. He also revealed that he has plans in bringing in Sesame Street characters as well so it could be a mix of all Muppet characters.
From MTV Movies Blog:
Pretty cool news. Sounds like they’ll make the next Muppet movie a huge blockbuster this time around. The last 3 or 4 Muppet films were flops.
I hope they do better next time so it can feel like a real Muppet movie.
Yes, they’re coming back! Those furry little muppets are returning for an 8th Muppets film. Their earlier films were: “The Muppet Movie”, “The Great Muppet Caper”, “The Muppets Take Manhatten”, “Jim Henson’s Muppet Vision 3D”, “The Muppet Christmas Carol”, “Muppet Treasure Island”, and “Muppets from Space”.
Jason Segel has been signed to co-write the movie along with director/writer Nick Stoller.
No word on what the plot and the title to the next Muppets film will be.
I do enjoy the Muppet movies, however the last 3 or 4 Muppet movies were pretty much crap. I thought “The Great Muppet Caper” and “Muppets Take Manhatten” were the best ones out of all of them, those two films were amazing!
I hope they make the next Muppets movie a real good one so the world can start caring about them again! Glad to see Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzy, Animal, etc. returning to the big screen!
