Whoopi Goldberg and a couple of Sopranos join Muppets Christmas Special

According to The Hollywood Reporter and Ain't it Cool News Whoopie G., along with Tony Sirico and Steve Schirripa of The Sopranos and the fine English actor Richard Griffiths (The History Boys, Harry Potter) have joined the cast of "Letters to Santa -- A Muppets Christmas."

That, to me at least, with the exception of the fine Mr. Griffiths, is the bad news about this holiday offering. The very good news is that Paul Williams is back on board with to provide the Muppets Music.

Hopefully I'm wrong but, this cast reminds me of the fairly awful, and far too adult, It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie. We'll see...
