The ’30 Rock’ Emmy Award-winning television star Tina Fey could be a part of the ‘Muppets’ sequel, where she is supposed to play the role of a Russian prison guard. This will be Fey’s first film post ’30 Rock’, which is coming to an end in January 2013. The actress will also be seen hosting the much celebrated Golden Globe Awards, with Amy Poehler this Sunday, January 13, 2013.
Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell from the TV show Modern Family will also star in the sequel as two of the three main human characters in the movie. Burrell will play the role of an Interpol agent. This will be the second movie that will see the Gervais and Fey together. The pair had first appeared in the comedy ‘Invention of Lying’ in 2009.
Elizabeth Stamatina Fey, also a famed author and screenwriter, had written and acted in the 2004 movie ‘Mean Girls’. The ‘Saturday Night Live’ writer had appeared in very few movies since she first debuted as a film actress in 2002, with Martin and Orloff. Fey is also scheduled to act in a comedy film named ‘Admission’ to be released later in 2013, along with Paul Rudd. It looks like 2013 will be a big year for the talented actress.
