Although a galaxy far, far away has been the news focus on Walt Disney Pictures the past few days, Variety brings a reminder that a return to the world of The Muppets is moving forward as well. The trade has learned that Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel as an Interpol agent.

Director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller are set to return behind the camera, but Jason Segel will not be back as the star.

"We kind of felt like we completed Gary's story in the first one," Stoller told ComingSoon.net in a recent interview, "and he's mostly interested in writing stuff for him to be in, which makes sense, right? He didn't want to go on and write the next one. I was like, 'Do you care if I do it with James?' He's like, 'Of course not.'"

Waltz, meanwhile, recently appeared in Roman Polanski's Carnage and is set to re-team with Quentin Tarantino for this Christmas' Django Unchained.
