Since the announcement that The Muppets would be merging with a fan favorite attraction to create one perfect movie, more information on the film has slowly been coming out. One piece of information that was shared was that Glee star Darren Criss would be playing the Haunted Mansion groundskeeper. And now we know that Criss is not the only celebrity that viewers will be seeing on screen.

One of the most well-known parts of the Haunted Mansion attraction is the song “Grim Grinning Ghosts” and the haunted busts that sing it. The official Muppets Twitter account revealed that one of the busts featured in the film would belong to Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajack. The other busts would feature Skai Jackson (Jessie), Geoff Keighly (video game host), Justina Machado (One Day at a Time), and Craig Robinson (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
