Three years after the characters were successfully re-launched with the Jason Segel-starring "The Muppets," Jim Henson's iconic creations return in an all-new adventure, "Muppets Most Wanted," that has the gang traveling across Europe, unwittingly infiltrated by Constantine (Henson performer Matt Vogel), a world-class criminal who bears a startling resemblance to Kermit. And we've got a hilarious exclusive scene that showcases the type of dynamic Constantine brings to the table.
In the clip, Constantine is hanging out with his No. 2 man, Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), who is posing as the Muppets' international tour manager. They are scheming when Miss Piggy (Muppeteer Eric Jacobsen) interrupts them. "Am I wearing a sign that says 'Bother Me?'" Constantine snaps, in a hardly identifiable European accent. Badguy tells him that they should be "keeping up appearances," which leads Constantine to go after Piggy (and how!) "You're my lady and I'm your man, baby," Constantine says. It's pretty hilarious.
The movie was once again co-written by Nicholas Stoller and James Bobin, and directed by Bobin, with brand new songs from Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for his efforts on the first "Muppets."
Watch the whole scene for even more insanity, and be sure to check out "Muppet Most Wanted," which features supporting performances by Tina Fey and Ty Burrell, and cameo appearances by pretty much everyone you'd want to show up in a Muppets movie, when it's released wide on March 21.
