New Muppet Walter Was Based On Michael Cera


You know the new Muppet, Walter? The “sweet, simple character” who’s a big fan of all the other Muppets’ past Muppeting? Apparently that sweetness and simpleness was modeled after the sweetness and simpleness of one Mr. Michael Cera. Good to know. Now we can all prepare for the moment when a Muppet inspires us to feel disproportionate amounts of lust or derision (or other feelings people feel about Michael Cera? I mostly just want to punch him gently on the shoulder and go “believe in yourself!”).
