Meet the star-studded celebrity cast of 'Muppets Now' which includes both new and familiar faces to the world of Muppets
'Muppets Now' will see the Muppets bring what they do best into an all-new era of modern television, with their debut on Disney+ set for July 31. What is it the Muppets do best? They bring their zany antics across a variety of entertainments, all accompanied by a star-studded line-up of special guests. We take a look at some of the celebrities who will be joining the cast of 'Muppets Now' for this all-new, unscripted streaming series on Disney+.
Aubrey Plaza is an actress, comedian and producer, best known for her long-running role on 'Parks & Recreation' as April Ludgate. She is recognizable for her deadpan, eccentric performances, which she took to an all-new level as Lenny Busker/The Shadow King on 'Legion'.l She's also shared the screen with Seth Rogen, another special guest of 'Muppets Now,' in 2009's 'Funny People'.
Seth Rogen is a Canadian actor, comedian, writer, producer and director. Originally a stand-up comedian, Seth Rogen got his big break in Judd Apatow's 'Freaks and Geeks'. Rogen continued to work with Apatow for films such as 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up' and 'Funny People'. Rogen's work as a writer has been involved in films such as 'The Pineapple Express', 'Superbad', 'The Green Hornet' and 'This Is the End'. He is known for his unique brand of stoner comedy, and an easygoing, friendly approach to being a celebrity.
The creator, producer and host of 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' RuPaul has done it all, as a drag queen, actor, model, singer, songwriter and all-round TV personality. Arguably the most famous drag queen in the world, RuPaul released his album 'Supermodel of the World' in 1993 after several years working in New York's nightclub scene. About a year later, VH1 gave him his very own talk show, 'The RuPaul Show,' which he hosted for over 100 episodes. He's appeared in several films and television series bringing his trademark fabulousness to every production.
Danny Trejo is an American actor who has made a name for himself both as an incredibly badass action star and as a parody of the same. Acting in both comedy and R-rated action films, Danny Trejo's dedication to his brand as the toughest hero in Hollywood has earned him much popularity with fans. His tough reputation is backed up by his real-life experiences — he spent a lot of his early life in and out of prison — becoming a champion boxer while serving in San Quentin. He has also lent his distinctive raspy voice to several video games and animated series, such as 'Grand Theft Auto' and 'Storks'. This is not his first time working with Muppets, either — he's appeared in 'Muppets: Most Wanted' as a fictionalized version of himself.
'Muppets Now' also stars Linda Cardellini, Taye Diggs, Roy Choi and Giuseppe Losavio. You can catch the series premiere on July 31 on Disney+.
