Jane Lynch denies Muppets claims

Jane Lynch has brushed off reports that she is to star in the Muppets movie.

The Emmy award-winning Glee star denies being attached to Disney's upcoming feature, starring and co-written by How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel, telling the Hollywood Reporter that she has not been approached.

"I'm not doing the Muppets movie - they haven't asked me," she said.

But Jane, who is known for playing acerbic cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, added: "I would do it if they asked me."

Jane was rumoured to play a prison guard with Danny Trejo cast as her prisoner.

Other actors tipped to be joining Jason include Lady Gaga, Zach Galifianakis, Jack Black, John Krasinski, Ed Helms and Paul Rudd.

Flight Of The Conchords' James Bobin will direct, and the film is set to be released around next Christmas.
