Posted by at 10:39 am on December 18, 2012

Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming sequel to their 2011 The Muppets appears to have found its human lead. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Ricky Gervais is in talks to star. He’d join the just-confirmed Ty Burell, who will play an Interpol agent.

Director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller are set to return behind the camera, but Jason Segel will not be back as the star. Gervais’ character (which is still unknown) will likely fill in as a similar style of leading man.
