Emmy winner refutes earlier casting reports, says she would do film if asked.

Despite recent casting announcements made in the media earlier this week, Jane Lynch says she is not attached to Disney's upcoming Muppets movie.

The Glee star and Emmy winner told The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday night at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's 39th annual gala fundraiser that she has not been approached to participate in the project being written by How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller (Yes Man).

"I'm not doing the Muppets movie," Lynch said. "They haven't asked me. I would do it if they asked me."

The recent Emmy winner was on hand to pick up the Rand Schrader Distinguished Achievement Award, the Center's highest individual honor, which was presented to her by Glee co-star Matthew Morrison and writer-director-creator Ryan Murphy.
