UPenn and Todd Lieberman and MuppetsSince the summer we've seen some great Muppet promos, but today Todd Lieberman's (C'95, AEPi, Mask and Wig) 98% Rotten Tomatoes rated Muppet Movie finally hits theaters!

After the jump find out what Todd shared with the NY Post about how he became a stand-in puppeteer for one scene in the film ...and what caused his muppet to be cut from his own film!




Per the NY Post,
"During a scene in the film — in which every Muppet gathers in a lobby to hear a heartfelt speech from Kermit the Frog — the producer was asked to pitch in because the puppets outnumbered the puppeteers. “I learned how difficult it really is,” Lieberman said. “You’re sweating, your arm hurts. Then, in post-production, the visual effects supervisor noticed there was one Muppet in the scene that looked totally wrong. It was angled weird. It had no reaction. It was totally off. Guess what? It was my Muppet. And it got cut out.”
I spoke to Todd this morning and he's been on an exciting whirlwind media tour that included being backstage at "SNL" (with host Jason Segel) and going to the White House for a special screening for military families.

On a Muppets related note, if you recall, Todd filmed this exclusive video for us while he was on the Muppet set.  (This was the day they were filming a scene with Foo Fighters' very own Dave Grohl.)



Check out this firstshowing.net interview with Todd and his producing partner David Hoberman:
