‘Muppets Most Wanted’ hits UK cinemas today boasting more all-star cameos that you can shake a stick at including Lady Gaga, Christoph Waltz, Tony Bennett and many many more.

But who would the cast of the furry sequel want to cameo in the next inevitable Muppets caper?

“I think it would be great for President Obama to [make a cameo],” Ty Burrell told Yahoo in our video above, “I guess I’m saying that for his acting career. I think President Obama is definitely looking to pick up his acting career, which right now is incredibly thin.”

Burrell plays bumbling French cop Jean Pierre Napoleon in the sequel which sees The Muppets embarking on a European tour.

“I do know the First Lady, I just spent last week with her,” explains Kermit, “We did a screening for her.”

Barack Obama was recently seen in an episode of the spoof web chat show ‘Between Two Ferns’ trading barbs with host Zach Galifianakis, so a cameo in the much-loved Disney franchise doesn’t seem too outlandish after all.

If it does come to pass, remember, you heard it here first.
