Longtime Kermit The Frog voice actor and puppeteer Steve Whitmire is retiring after 27 years. He took over the role after Jim Henson’s death in 1990.
Matt Vogel, who provides the voice for other characters, including The Count, and Big Bird, will be taking over Kermie’s vocals. However, before it was decided, Owen Wilson, Ray Romano, and even Liam Neeson auditioned for the role (smile) enjoy:
