With Muppets Most Wanted now in theaters, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Ricky Gervais and Constantine. 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 Fey, Ty Burrell and features a ton of celebrity cameos. For more on the film, watch 20 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, or check out all our previous coverage which features TV spots, clips, interviews, and more.
In my interview with Gervais and Constantine, they talked about performing the song “I’m Number One,” the stunts, when Constantine first realized he looked a lot like Kermit, how quickly Gervais signed on to the project, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
