After a brief appearance in Muppets From Space, Ray Liotta has now signed up for The Muppets 2...

Production has now begun on the follow-up to the quite terrific The Muppets, with James Bobin back directing. We already know that Ricky Gervais has the lead role in the movie, and he's being joined by Tina Fey and Ty Burrell. But a new piece of casting news has also just landed.

And it's this: Ray Liotta is the latest to sign up to the new Muppets movie, although exactly what his role is going to be is, as yet, unclear. Liotta does have form with the Muppets though, having appeared briefly in the best-forgotten Muppets From Space.

The new Muppets film is due in cinemas in March 2014. We're rather looking forward to it.
