Muppets, it’s time to welcome Liam Hemsworth! The Hemsworth brother and ‘Hunger Games’ star will be guest-starring on an episode of ‘The Muppets’ TV series this fall. Miss Piggy is a single gal, so watch out, Kermit!
Liam Hemsworth, 25, is taking a break from movies and heading to TV. The swoonworthy star will be making an appearance on The Muppets, premiering in Sept. 2015. Liam, who will play himself on the show, is just the latest celebrity to join the highly-anticipated show.
Liam will be one of the guest stars on the new comedy series, Entertainment Weekly reports. The Muppets will be a documentary-style show, centering on the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships both on and off the air. One thing is for sure: it’s going to be both hilarious and dramatic!
Liam posted a flirty Instagram photo with Miss Piggy after the news was announced. He captioned it: “Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry. #TheMuppets #misspiggy.”
Speaking of the Muppets’ personal lives, one relationship on the show that will be a primary focus will be Kermit and Miss Piggy’s. The iconic couple called it quits in early Aug. 2015. How will Kermit feel about a hunky guy like Liam being on the scene? Miss Piggy can be a flirt after all.
Liam is going to have one busy fall. He’s going to be coming together with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson for the last time to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, which will be released Nov. 20. Liam also just finished filming Independence Day: Resurgence.
Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Banks and Imagine Dragons have all been announced to be on The Muppets as well. Stars like Kerry Washington and Patricia Heaton have been featured in funny commercials for the show. The Muppets will premiere on Sept. 22 on ABC.
