You might think with no shortage of Jim Henson creations to choose from that a Muppets movie doesn't need star power to back it up. But cameos have been a staple of the franchise since the beginning and that's not stopping with the latest entry in the series, "Muppets Most Wanted."

Disney's D23 expo -- the Mouse House's equivalent to San Diego Comic-Con -- came and went this past weekend, bringing much of the world's manchild population to Anaheim for several days of Disney-related fun. Given the studio's increasing dominance of the tentpole field thanks to their acquisition of Marvel and Lucasfilm, hopes were high that some hot news might drop, but outside of some casting for some Pixar movies, it didn't really happen.

You know you’ve made it when they offer you a “Muppets” cameo. From John Cleese to John Krasinski; Tina Fey to Ty Burrell, Kermit’s is a team worth pitching for. And the latest to get the Henson seal of approval is Tom Hiddleston, who eagle-eyed fans at the Muppets Henson blog (via Comic Book Movie) have spotted. The actor has joined the cast of the lazily-titled “The Muppets… Again!” as 'The Great Escapo.' For Hiddleston, it's both a pat on the back and, let’s face it, a chance to get to play something other than Loki in a Marvel movie (which, with this year's "Thor: The Dark World," he'll have done three times in three years).

Way back in the 1990s, Ray Liotta was a pretty big deal for a while there. Of course, he broke out in Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas," but he also earned attention for playing Shoeless Joe Jackson in "Field Of Dreams." At any rate, by time 1999 rolled out, he could be cast in "Muppets In Space" as a familiar face, and he was, playing a security guard, giving parents something to smile at during the movie that they dragged their kids to. Well, it seems Liotta liked his time acting opposite the Muppeteers so he's gonna do it again.

Late last year word arrived that none other than Ricky Gervais landed the lead role in the “The Muppets 2” with “Modern Family” star Ty Burrell taking over for Christoph Waltz in one of the other two major parts. At the time it was rumored that the film was “a Euro-caper,” and now THR is reporting that Tina Fey has snagged the female lead role opposite fellow Golden Globe host Gervais.

After seeing their latest films open to massive Christmas Day box office returns, Hugh Jackman and Christoph Waltz have earned a brief respite from weeks of tirelessly plugging “Les Miserables” and “Django Unchained” on the national press circuit. However, that’s not to say those junket days yielded nothing, as the actors’ cameo comments on both the latest 'X-Men' and 'Muppet' movies prove just the intriguing opposite.

While he has dominated the small screen, Ricky Gervais has yet to find his niche at the multiplex. His lone leading man efforts "The Invention Of Lying" and "Ghost Town" didn't make much impact, while the dramatic-ish "Cemetery Junction" pretty much came and went without a trace. And while he's lent his face in support in a handful of studio films, he's still probably best known to most mainstream audiences as that British guy who insulted celebs for a couple years at the Golden Globes. Well now, he'll be bringing his wit to your children.
