There’s a new guy in town. Recently, the new voice of Kermit the Frog, Matt Vogel, performed with the Muppets at the Hollywood Bowl.
As reported earlier, veteran Muppet performer Steve Whitmire was fired from the Disney franchise after nearly 40 years. Whitmire took over the voice and puppeteering of Kermit in 1990 after creator Jim Henson died. Vogel was named Whitmire’s replacement and has been with the Muppets since the mid-’90s.
