'Muppet' Movie Casting Rumors: Jane Lynch, Danny Trejo and ... Lady Gaga?

Just days after the first image from the 'Muppets' movie hit the Internet, Production Weekly released a list of names that may join Jason Segel's highly anticipated project.

Among the names mentioned: Emmy winner Jane Lynch ('Glee') and 'Machete's' Danny Trejo. According to the Wrap, Lynch will play a prison guard and Trejo will play her prisoner (presumably without his machete, we would hope). Also joining the cast is 'Community' funnyman Donald Glover, though further details on his role have yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, Production Weekly is also reporting that Jack Black, Zach Galifianakis, Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski, Ed Helms and -- wait for it -- Lady Gaga are eyeing the project. Paul Rudd was listed as being up for the role of Walter the Muppet, though that has since been shot down.

As previously reported, Segel will star in the film from a script he co-wrote. Two-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will also co-star, as Segel's character's girlfriend, alongside Chris Cooper and Rashida Jones. James Bobin of 'Flight of the Conchords' fame directs.

The 'Muppets' movie is scheduled to hit theaters Christmas, 2011
