Every time a new Muppet movie has come down on high from Hollywood, almost every famous person you can think of is in it whether they have a major role that contributes to the plot or a quick cameo. However, there is one name we never thought we would ever see associated with such a storied family franchise: Danny “Machete” Trejo.
The Robert Rodriguez regular has a part in the new Muppet film Muppets Most Wanted, according to the trailer released earlier today.
The new Muppet movie centers around a cunning amphibian criminal named Constantine who looks remarkably like our green skinned friend Kermit. When Kermit gets framed for a crime Constantine committed, the rest of the Muppets gang travel the world to clear his name.
Along the way, they run into more than a dozen celebrities including Ricky Gervais, Tiny Fey, Zach Galifinakis, P-Diddy (or whatever he’s calling himself this week) and the aforementioned Trejo who makes a hilarious appearance as some kind of Fozzie the Bear impersonator. We’re really hoping the rest of his scene involves a very large and very sharp machete.
