Tina Fey could be set to star in The Muppets sequel.

The 30 Rock star, who is co-hosting this year's Golden Globes, is in negotiations to play the female lead in the Disney film, The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog said.

Ricky Gervais has already been cast as one of the stars of the movie, which sees the puppets go to Europe, and Modern Family star Ty Burrell also has a role as a lazy Interpol inspector.

Tina could play a Russian gulag prison guard in the new film, directed once again by James Bobin.

It's not yet known which part Ricky - whose cameo in the 2011 film ended up on the cutting room floor - would play.

Ricky and Tina previously worked together in The Invention Of Lying, which was directed by the Extras star.

This ability to stand apart from the crowd will make you invincible. Stop looking to others for cues.More
