Academy Award winning actor Christoph Waltz is going from something completely different by signing up to play an Interpol agent in the sequel to last year’s hit The Muppets. Waltz, who will next be seen as a bounty hunter in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, has signed on the dotted line to appear with Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang in the next Muppet movie, according to Variety.
“We kind of felt like we completed Gary’s story in the first one,” screenwriter Nicholas Stoller said in a recent interview with Coming Soon. “[H]e’s mostly interested in writing stuff for him to be in, which makes sense, right? He didn’t want to go on and write the next one. I was like, ‘Do you care if I do it with James?’ He’s like, ‘Of course not.'”
James is James Bobin, director of the last Muppets movie and creator of Flight of the Conchords.
