Muppet Followup: Exclusive Look Up Amy Adams’ Dress
Not for you, but for some lucky Muppeteer. /Film has posted some new pics (via The Daily Mail) from the set of The Muppets, including this one of Amy Adams with new Muppet Walter. Now, we know Paul Rudd will provide Walter’s voice, but as a Muppet fan, I’ve been wondering who’ll be on puppet duty.
The only suspect who came to mind based on the long hair was Steve Whitmire himself, the man behind Kermit. But this guy looked too young to be Whitmire, so I hit up Muppet Wiki which identifies the puppeteer as Peter Linz. I’d seen his name in Muppet credits before, but I couldn’t think of any major roles he’d performed, until I discovered that he was the voice of Tutter from Bear in the Big Blue House. You may not know who that is, but the memory of Linz squeaking I GOTTA BIG BLOCK OF CHEESE HERE, BEAR! still brings a smile to my face. I couldn’t ask for a better hand for Paul Rudd’s voice to come out of.
