During the Muppets heyday, anyone who was anyone guested on the show and films -- including Madeline Kahn, Bob Hope, Carol Burnett, Johnny Cash, Joan Rivers and even the great Orson Welles. As we learned last week, Jason Segel's 'Muppets' movie is looking to hold up that tradition, populating the cast and cameo list with a ton of recognizable names.

The rumored possibilities listed all manner of current bigwigs -- Jane Lynch, Jack Black, Zach Galifianakis, and even Lady Gaga. Now the first batch of official cameos has been released, and it's packed with more than some of those once-rumored names. There are also a few surprises, like Billy Crystal, who hasn't been in a live action film since 2002's 'Analyze That.' (We're not counting any uncredited blips in 'Tooth Fairy' ... and can only hope that this leads to more live-action work!)
