The Muppets… Again
Til Schweiger ("Inglourious Basterds") is apparently set to star in the upcoming sequel to "The Muppets" which is currently shooting around the River Medway in Kent in the UK.

Actress Fleur Poad let slip that Schweiger was on set. That marks at least the second 'Basterds' cast member in the cast as Christoph Waltz also has a cameo. [Source: Bleeding Cool]
