Want to meet the crazy cast from the mega movie? Here you go…
KERMIT THE FROG PLAYS KERMIT THE FROG
Kermit explains: “I understand they considered other actors like George Clooney and Tom Hanks for the role of Kermit – but I won it in the end. When it comes to playing a short, green and amphibious guy, I’m still Hollywood’s go-to guy.”
MISS PIGGY PLAYS MISS PIGGY
Miss Piggy reveals: “This is the role I was born to play. Moi plays a high-powered, confident, charismatic, gorgeous, scene-stealing star who saves the day and wins her frog’s heart!”
JASON SEGEL PLAYS GARY
Jason Segel explains: “Gary is very naïve, sweet and innocent – and he’s very much in love with his girlfriend Mary. It’s been a dream come true to star in The Muppets!”
WALTER PLAYS WALTER
Walter admits: “Walter is the world’s biggest Muppet fan, which is a real coincidence since I happen to be the world’s biggest Muppet fan and my name is Walter. It’s like I was made to play this part!”
AMY ADAMS PLAYS MARY
Amy Adams reveals: “Mary is a small-town girl. She’s a shop teacher in Smalltown, USA, and she’s also Gary’s girlfriend. She’s desperately waiting for Gary to propose!”
CHRIS COOPER PLAYS TEX RICHMAN
Chris Cooper explains: “Tex blames the Muppets for a terrible event that happened to him at his 10th birthday party. He is unable to laugh and has vowed to destroy the Muppets!”
RASHIDA JONES PLAYS VERONICA
Rashida Jones reveals: “I play a hard-nosed, stressed-out TV executive. I am the only person who gives the Muppets the chance to air their fundraising telethon – and I yell at Kermit a lot!”
The Muppets is Available March 20th with the Wocka Wocka Value Pack, which contains the movie on Blu-ray high-definition, DVD and Digital Copy (3 discs) plus adownload card for the film’s soundtrack from Walt Disney Records!
