The Muppets

I saw this question on Twitter and thought it was perfect for the Bald Move brain trust.

You can replace the cast of any movie with The Muppets (I suppose you can change the script as need-be to make it more Muppet-ish), but you keep one of the human actors. What movie and which actor do you choose?

I’m going with The Godfather / Pacino.

    The Lord of the Rings.

    Every single character in the movie is a Muppet, the Hobbits, Elves, Orcs, Ents, etc.

    Except Gandalf. It's Ian McKellen doing his amazing work with nothing but foam Muppets around him.

    Bonus: Gollum is also in Muppet form, his wispy hair lends itself well to 'Muppet Hair,' and he must be played by Andy Serkis.

    Blade Runner, both movies. The first movie is Harrison Ford as Deckard with muppets, Rachel played by a dour Miss Piggy. In the second movie Deckard is a Harrison Ford muppet to symbolize his reinterpretation as a replicant, and Ryan Gosling remains. But none of that "Am I a man or a muppet" stuff, Ryan Gosling is still wondering if he's human in a world populated by muppets.

    That's hilarious. Alternate: Obiwan, blissfully unaware he doesn't fit in.

  • I saw this on Twitter and I wish I could take credit for this because when I read it I laughed for quite a while:

    Human Centipede, keep the guy in the middle

  • Close Encounters

    He would be taller than everyone, and therefore would always have the high ground.

    Jaws, keep Roy Scheider. Can you imagine Quint getting eaten as a Muppet? Although Sonny Corleone at the toolbooth would also be a laugh riot.

    The Indianapolis monologue would take on a weird meta at the doll's eyes part.

    Aliens, keep Paul Reiser.  With the chestburster scene it’s Pepe the Prawn.

  • This just came to me. It’s probably the best idea I’ve ever had (at least in my top 10)...

    All of the Fast and Furious movies, keep either Vin Diesel or Paul Walker (RIP)... also The Rock or all 3...

    Why hasn’t The Rock been in a Muppets movie?!

    Would Citizen Kane be diminished if Orson Welles were acting with Muppets? I think not.

    Reservoir Dogs, keep Steve Buscemi.  Animal takes over Michael Madsen's role.

    Beaker in everything. He's my homeboy.

  • Inception with Leonardo Dicaprio as himself would be pretty good.  Also I think The Dark Knight would be good with all muppets except for Heath Ledger.  Finally my favorite (although it's a show not a movie) would be Game of Thrones with Peter Dinklage playing Tyrion, having Kit Harington would also be good but I think Dinklage would be my number 1 pick.

    I don’t like the idea of a human actor, at least in a main role.
    So if I had to The Graduate. Piggy as Miss Robinson. Kermit as the main. Fozzy as the husband of Robinson. Gonzo as the guy that says “plastics” Ralph the Dog asthe landloard played by Norman Fell. The human is the dumb Robinson daughter.

    The follow up is also 1967s Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner.


    Orson Wells was in The Muppet Movie.

    ya @kingbee67 that's what made me think of it; I wanted to post a pic of Orson & Kermit together but I didn't want to step on my own joke :)
  • Chucky, but Chucky is a human and all the humans are muppets.
