The Muppets Clark Gregg Header

ABC is having a blast with The Muppets, and it hasn’t even aired yet. The premise, a faux documentary show, goes behind the scenes and follows the Muppets around in their personal lives. To go along with this, ABC has filmed TV spots starring other ABC stars, but also did it from a behind the scenes perspective. The spots include Scott Foley and Kerry Washington (Scandal), Eden Sher (The Middle), Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken – coming soon), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), and Randall Park and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat).

Watch all of the ads below. So fun!

The Muppets First Look Header

I miss The Muppets. That variety show styled hit was one of the highlights of my childhood. And with the resurgence of all things Muppets, thanks in no small part to Jason Segel, we get The Muppets back on TV. This time, the format is reality TV, as we get a glimpse into their personal lives.

Watch the almost 11-minute video below.

Kermit the Frog

Everyone knows and loves Jim Henson creation and Muppets star Kermit the Frog, despite his not really looking all that much like a frog we’ve ever seen…not until now, that is.

A new species of frog called Hyalinobatrachium dianae, or the more understandable name “Diane’s Bare-hearted Glassfrog” (OK maybe that also doesn’t make much sense, but it will in a bit!), has been discovered in the Caribbean foothills of Costa Rica, and it looks a whole lot like Mr. Kermit.

You can learn more and check out an image of Kermit’s real-life counterpart below.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Trailer: Kermit The Frog and The Case Of Mistaken Identity

Muppets Most Wanted Trailer Header Image

One is the most world renowned frog in the entertainment business, and the other is the most notorious frog in crime. It’s a case of mistaken frog identity in director James Bobin‘s sequel to The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted. The gang is back together for the sequel that will take them on a tour that takes them around the world and back. Problem is Kermit will be spending a great portion of that tour in prison, while the most notorious frog in crime, Constantine, takes his place.

This crime caper flick, which looks to be as much fun, if not more fun, than the film’s predecessor. And of course it wouldn’t be much of a Muppet movie if it did not have any sequels. Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, and Ricky Gervais are the principle cast, but there are cameos made by Danny Trejo, Christoph Waltz, Ray Liotta, P. Diddy, Celine Dion, and Tom Hiddleston (oh please let that be Tom Hiddleston). Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

D23 Expo 2013: Muppets Most Wanted

Get ready for Muppet mayhem in March 2014, as a preview of Muppets Most Wanted shown today at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, suggests this will be a fantastic sequel to the 2011 feature, The Muppets.

The newly-shown footage says that Constantine, the villainous Kermit look-alike with a mole, is the “world’s greatest criminal (that) bears resemblance to someone you know.” Constantine is a riot, as indicated by the clips, including a musical sequence where he asserts his “number one” authority over Ricky Gervais’ character, Dominic, aka Number Two.

The scene began with the Muppets in a theatre, looking for Kermit, and in comes Gervais with Kermit “clone” Constantine, who tries to cover up his European accent. Animal senses this is not his amphibian pal and attempts to eat Constantine’s arm. Constantine talks with Walter, but the cheerful Muppet does not understand who this is. Constantine struggles to say the word “burglary” when scheming with Gervais’ character, and then the two enter their duet on a staircase. They even “tap dance.” This was hilarious, and the audience was apparently the “first in the world” to see this footage, according to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Sean Bailey.

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy Fire Back At Fox News’ Attacks On ‘The Muppets’

The Muppets

You can’t blame the good people at Fox News for feeling the need to stir up some outrage; their relentless campaign of disinformation against President Obama has made them pariahs among more respectable news outlets and the current crop of Republican presidential candidates isn’t exactly inspiring confidence that the GOP will take back the White House this Fall (in a recent Fox News poll 44% of their viewers now believe that Obama would win a second term if either Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich were the 2012 Republican candidate for President).

One of the network’s favorite targets has always been “liberal” Hollywood and how they want to impose their debauched lifestyles and depraved beliefs on the fragile young mindsets of young Americans and lay waste to traditional family values in an apocalyptic fire of legalized abortion and medicinal marijuana. Most of the time certain outspoken celebrities give the fuming news drones at Fox plenty of fuel for their bilious fury, but then there are other times when it’s obvious that they’re just grasping at straws.

Frank Oz Reveals Why He Turned Down ‘The Muppets’

The Muppets

When The Muppets hits theaters the day before Thanksgiving the movie will be missing one of the original “Muppeteers”: Frank Oz.

Before becoming a director with films as diverse as the 1986 musical remake of Little Shop of Horrors and the DeNiro/Brando/Norton crime drama The Score to his credit, Oz provided the voices and movements for several of the most iconic Muppet characters including Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and Animal as well as Grover and Cookie Monster on Sesame Street. He also did the voice and puppeteering for Yoda in the original Star Wars trilogy (for the prequels Oz only did the voice, as Yoda was now a CGI character).

The Movie God   |  @   |

A couple of new trailers have been released for Disney’s The Muppets, including another parody trailer as well as the first full official trailer for the movie.

As far as parodies go a few have been released, the first of which was a bit strange but still amusing. This new one is a parody of the just-released DC Comics superhero movie, Green Lantern, with a voice over reciting the Lantern’s oath before revealing it’s actually for The Muppets. A poster to go with the spoof trailer has also been released, with Kermit the Frog as a Lantern.

Then comes the first official trailer for the movie, which sets up the actual storyline and dedicates the whole trailer to Muppet goodness. You can see both trailers and the Kermit Green Lantern poster by continuing on below now.
