Heat Vision is reporting that comedy star Ricky Gervais has been cast as the human lead in The Muppets 2.

The English actor replaces Jason Segel who revealed a while back that he wouldn’t be returning for the sequel.

Details on the role are being kept under wraps but we do know that Nicholas Stoller co-wrote the script with James Bobin returning to direct.

Production is set to begin this January in London with a release date set for December 20, 2013.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
