    First of all, Gerry Parkes is near his 80s at least, I'm sure. Check IMDB for exact date. But he was just on the bonus interviews for Fraggle Rock Season 3, so he's at least in pretty good health.

    So it appears to me that Brian Henson will be performing the Gobo puppet and other various Jerry Nelson parts in the hope that they will eventually be dubbed later by Jerry himself if he is able. :smirk: After seeing behind the scenes footage with Jerry on the Fraggle Rock DVD sets there's no mistaking his particular adoration for Gobo Fraggle.

    Bill Barretta as Convincing John is a no-brainer. I hope he can find the appropriate calm note required to play Cantus. I think he can do it. I have mentioned many times around the forum that he's one of my favorite performers. It's just that character of Jim's has big shoes to fill. Well, not shoes exactly. :coy:

    David Rudman for Junior Gorg is also a no-brainier and a fantastic casting choice!

    And we all know the fabulous Karen Prell would play Red. Finally she'll get her brand new “Stradivarius" Red puppet (as she refers to it) to replace the wonderful hat she created for Muppet Fest. I just feel very happy about that! :excited:

    Thanks for posting this cast listing!

    Where'd ya get this info from?
  11. frogboy4

    imdb.com most likely

    I am curious as to where he info came from myself.

    Is this the same imdb.com that said that Captain Smollet would be in VMX? Because I can't help feel there's something a little sketchy about it. This may be real news, but considering what day it is... check your calendar, or at least my post date... there could be some discrepencies. That and imdb entries of movies in production sometimes aren't correct.

    I'll reserve judgement for when we hear something a little more official.

    Yeah, it really can be hit-or-miss over there, but they do have a generally good track record when compared to other such sites. The "rumored" remark held for things not 100% confirmed makes me hopeful, but as always I take this stuff with a grain of salt. However, I do think it has some "ballpark" accuracies if that means much. :smirk:

    Definate ballpark figures there...

    Not sure how I'd feel about Bill voicing Cantus though...
  16. unclematt

    unclematt Well-Known Member

    I was questionable about that as well. Has he done any other Jim characters? Was he Rowlf?

    I'm wondering if this has been permanently shelved, I just have this feeling that a FR movie was too good to be true.

    IgorPonweed Well-Known Member

    You may be right. But if we got a transformers movie, it may still stand a chance. :sympathy:

    I feel this could still be made, at the very least as a DTV film. but hey, how the heck did that Honeymooners movie get a theatrical release?

    I am just going to say this as loud as it can be typed. I DONT WANT A DIRECT TO TV MOVIE!
