    Currently on Twitter there is an open question which has been getting a lot of feedback. It is:

    You can replace the cast of any movie with The Muppets, but you keep one of the human actors. What movie and which human do you keep? - @CoryjTaylor

    My non-serious reply was Moon, and keep Sam Rockwell. As he is essentially the only live body in the movie, it wouldn't change much.

    More seriously... plenty of options. I think LA Confidential with Russell Crowe navigating a city full of Muppets would be entertaining.

    Ideas?

    Silence of the Lambs, Clarice Starling as the only human. Somehow the concept of a deranged super genius cannibal muppet is hilarious to me.

    You're trying to tell us that Harrison Ford isn't a muppet??

    It suddenly occurs to me that horror movies would be much more amusing in this mode... Se7en with Spacey killing off the Muppets in creative ways (and Miss Piggy's head in the box), or Cabin in the Woods with the control center guy still there, Muppets for others. Evil Dead muppets crawling out of the cellar.

    The Blade Runner idea sounds good, although with the one guy making his own animatronic friends, there'd be kind of a weird crossover in those scenes.

    My answer to this is to take the movie "Brick" and keep either Tug or the Pin. Both of them have unique implications.

    I think that's what kicked off the original question on Twitter.

    I'd rather have John Vernon; much more of a central character. A muppet Otis Day and the Knights would be fun.
