This ‘Kermit the Frog’ drama just won’t end! Brian Henson (the son of Jim Henson, who created ‘The Muppets’) says he feels “guilty” that he didn’t fire actor Steve Whitmire 13 years ago!
Whitmire’s been voicing Kermit for 27 years, and Henson says he was always HORRIBLE to work with. He says Whitmire’s communication with colleagues was “appalling” and that he made “outrageous demands” because he thought there was no show without him.
However, Whitmire’s not taking it lying down. He says all he did was send detailed notes to show executives in order to keep his character CONSISTENT. He says if they had listened to the performers more, perhaps the show wouldn’t have been cancelled after one season last fall!
