'The Muppets' review - A good time for Muppet fans of all ages

When I was young, The Muppets were already a fixture in the entertainment world. It takes a lot of effort to dislike Jim Henson’s Muppets. They’ve always been fantastic family entertainment with that faint edginess to them so the adults enjoy themselves just as much as the kids. I’m happy to report that the formula that made the Muppets so successful is back. After a decade of starring in hit or miss Web videos and lame TV specials, the Muppets have been revived again thanks to Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller, and two of the guys who brought you Flight of the Conchords: Bret McKenzie and James Bobin.

Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords talks about his role in 'The Hobbit'

The Hobbit will see the return of one of the original trilogy’s biggest stars. No, not John Rhys-Davies or Viggo Mortensen. Bret McKensie is coming back to Middle Earth. Don’t recognize his name? Well, you may know for being half of “New Zealand’s 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo,” Flight of the Conchords. Yep, McKensie played an unnamed Elf (fans named him Figwit) in The Fellowship of the Ring and since he made such a splash online, Peter Jackson brought him back for a longer role in Return of the King. Now he’s shaving his beard and growing his hair out yet again for the prequel.

MEN IN BLACK 3 may star Jemaine Clement or Sacha Baron Cohen

We can't have both, unfortunately. Jemaine Clement (from New Zealand's 4th most popular folk-comedy duo, Flight of the Conchords) and Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno, Borat, Ali G) are both in the running to play a character named "Yaz" in the upcoming Men in Black 3 film. Why anyone is interested in making a third Men in Black when the second one could hardly fill an hour and a half, who knows, but it's happening.

This news comes from Bloody Disgusting (thanks to my friends at Filmonic for the link). Will Smith is still in talks to reprise his role as Agent J, but there's no word from Tommy Lee Jones. The script, penned by Tropic Thunder co-writer Etan Cohen, takes Smith back in time to meet a younger version of Agent K. Josh Brolin is rumored to play the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones. 

I cast my vote for Jemaine. It seems we have a situation where both gentlemen are in love with the same sexy lady...that lady being...Men in Black.
