With Muppets Most Wanted now in theaters, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Ty Burrell. 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, Ricky Gervais 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 Burrell he talked about how quickly he signed on to the film, how he was offered the role, what it was like working with the Muppets, how they’re incredible improvisers, Finding Dory, Modern Family, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
