A film crew spent Tuesday afternoon getting the Bonanza Casino ready for its close up in the newest Muppet movie.

Officials there say the casino's marquee is what drew the stars in. "Apparently they drove by and saw our marquee and just loved it. I think it's just great for Reno to have an opportunity like the Muppets especially when you think of all the stars in the movie making guest appearances and then the Bonanza Casino, so it's kind of nice," says marketing director Martin Amba.

Making guest appearances at the Bonanza will be Fozzie Bear along with the lead human and one of the movie's writers, Jason Segel, from How I Met Your Mother.

And when the movie hits the big screen on Christmas Day, you'll also see Amy Adams and Chris Cooper join the cast.
