"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Although they were in pop-culture limbo while social media came into its own, the Muppets seem to have gotten the hang of Twitter pretty quickly. Just take a look at their latest promo for Muppets Most Wanted, which features a series of (possibly not entirely legitimate) tweets expressing excitement for the upcoming Disney sequel.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
James Bobins’ Muppets Most Wanted, which will feature cameos by Tom Hiddleston, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis and a host of others, hits theaters on March 21.
