I don’t know about you, but I’m plenty excited to see the Muppets back on the big screen. It’ll be nice to reunite with our old friends Kermit, Fozzie, Rowlf, Gonzo, and Miss Piggy.

Jason Segel, Amy Adams, and Chris Cooper will join a long and proud history of actors who shared a screen with the Muppets.
Today, let’s take a look back at the best human performances in a Muppet movie, and come next week, we’ll see how Segel, Adams, and Cooper stack up against these classic performers.
