Kermit the Frog is so many things --- according to Colorado Springs Independent, he is a "TV legend, bestselling author, recording artist, movie star of the movie-starriest order. "
But is he evil?
For his new movie with the rest of the "Muppets" gang in "Muppets Most Wanted," Kermit is not just the hapless little thing that fans know he is. He also decided to divulge in self-experimentation as he took a dual role, with one being the film's antagonist named Constantine.
Looking almost exactly like the gentle Kermit, Constantine, who, according to Reuters was born in a Russian pond, turned the rest of the gang to his own accomplices to steal the Crown Jewels in London.
In an interview, Constantine shared, "It is how I was born and created. I was bad guy from little tadpole. I am for the one. I am just for myself." He then proves his evil ways by slapping a fake mole onto Kermit's cheek and using mole-hiding makeup to hide his own, he then succeeds in switching places with the Muppet's loved hero.
British comedian, Ricky Gervais, gives voice to Kermit's doppelganger, but even though he's supposed to be a villain, Gervais thinks Constantine is one funny Muppet. He said about his character, "He's a serious guy. So he says things that he doesn't know are funny that make me laugh."
Early reviews of the new Muppets movie are generally positive, but the box office expects a modest haul of $17 million during the opening weekend, less than half of what is expected to be bought in by the 20th Century Fox counterpart, "Rio 2".
"Muppets Most Wanted" stars Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell. It will also have a bunch of cameo appearances from stars, including Lady Gaga and Celine Dion, and will be shown in theaters beginning March 21
