Even if it’s not that easy being green, A-list celebrities still want in on the emerald-hued action.
For months, rumors have swirled around Kermit and company’s latest movie: Who among Hollywood’s Who’s Who would pop up? Among the confirmed cameos in “The Muppets’’ are John Krasinski, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Mila Kunis, Neil Patrick Harris, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Selena Gomez, and Sarah Silverman. But they represent a tiny fraction of stars who would jump at the chance to participate.

Entertainers in their prime were tapped to play waiters (Steve Martin), balloon salesmen (Bob Hope), and movie moguls (Orson Welles). What’s the Muppets’ magic trick? Must be that rainbow connection thing they’re always singing about. See if you can spot these faces in the audience below.
