Kermit the Frog Talks MUPPETS MOST WANTED, Wanting to Do 50 SHADES OF GREEN, Why He Isn’t in STAR WARS: EPISODE 7, Reading Rainbow, and More

     August 25, 2014


With director James Bobin’s Muppets Most Wanted now available on Blu-ray and DVD, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Kermit the Frog.  In the sequel, the gang is on a successful tour in Europe but gets into trouble when Kermit gets mistaken for his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine.  The film stars Tina FeyRicky Gervais, Ty Burrell and features a ton of celebrity cameos.  For more on the film, check out all our previous coverage which features interviews and more.

During this new interview with Kermit, he talked about the biggest challenge making Muppets Most Wanted, the real reason he isn’t in Star Wars: Episode 7, how he’d like to make 50 Shades of Green, if it’s any easier being green after seeing Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy and Hulk in the Marvel movies, future Muppet TV specials or movies, if he might do another episode of Reading Rainbow with LeVar Burton, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch and click here to buy Muppets Most Wanted on Blu-ray.

    • Django9000

      See Peter Jackson’s -( yes, That Peter Jackson -) career launching film, Meet the Feebles.

      More dark satirical comedy than a romantic one … but worth it just to see Jackson raw & unhinged lol
