CS Video: Muppets Most Wanted’s Ty Burrell on His Patriotic Co-Star Sam Eagle


On March 21, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and the rest of the gang are back for Muppets Most Wanted, their latest big screen adventure, which picks up just seconds after the end of 2011’s The Muppets. This time, the Muppets are going on a world tour with just one little problem: Kermit winds up getting secretly replaced by an evil doppelganger, Constantine (played, coincidentally enough, by an actual criminal frog of the same name!)

ComingSoon.net sat down with star Ty Burrell, who plays Jean Pierre Napeleon, an Interpol agent who teams with Sam Eagle in the hopes of finding out who is responsible for a rash of high-profile burglaries all across Europe. In the below video interview, Burrell reveals some surprising facts about his fine-feathered co-star and expressed decided interest in him and Sam potentially taking on the second season of HBO’s “True Detective.” Check it out in the player below and check back soon for more video interviews with both human and Muppet cast members of the March 21 release.
