She’s already worn them and been escorted by them, so it makes sense that [artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist] now may be joining the Muppets, in a reboot of their long-running film series due in theaters next year.
This is according to Production Weekly, an industry publication that chronicles film and television projects in pre-production and development, which on Thursday tweeted that they were “hearing that [actors] Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski and Ed Helms may be in Lady Gaga’s entourage for ’The Muppets.’ ”
By logical extension, that would mean that Gaga herself could be filming a cameo for the movie. And it lends credence to earlier reports that “How I Met Your Mother” star Jason Segel — who is writing the script for the new “Muppets” movie — was basing the story line around the idea that “Miss Piggy ends up becoming like a Lady Gaga-esque character living in Europe.”
A spokesperson for Lady Gaga did not respond to MTV News’ request for comment on the matter, but if LG does show up in the new “Muppets” film, we expect a few scenes with Kermit the Frog, her date to the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Their appearance on the red carpet — not to mention the smooch they shared — had gossipmongers whispering that the two were an item. But Kermit would later deny those rumors , telling People that he “just gave Lady Gaga a ride to the VMAs, and when [she] left her credentials in the limo, I had to bring them to her.”
Of course, that angered Kermit’s longtime beau Miss Piggy, which had some rather disastrous results. “After Lady Gaga and I were seen on the red carpet together, well … Miss Piggy got a little jealous,” Kermit said. “But I definitely did get a ride home — in the trunk!”
