I think Link will go to Peter, whereas Newsman and Beaker will go to Rudman
Yeah, Rudman makes sense for Beaker. Still not sure about the Newsman. Perhaps @newsmanfan has some spiritual insight. Some Newsman intuition, if you will.
I think his voice for Chicago the Lion would work for the Newsman, just toned down a bit deeper
Yeah, I think it could work. A lot of David's characters have that same manic energy about them.
Never even thought of them. Will be interesting to see.
That's the same one that was linked a couple pages back from the LA Times.
o welp you get to watch it again
I showed this video to my sister. She thinks Matt is getting better, but she doesn't know what to make of Miss Piggy. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Miss Piggy is out of character!
EDIT: I wanted to add something my sister told me this afternoon. She said all the broo-ha-ha we were having over Steve and Disney reminded her of the Insane Brony community. She's a fan of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, and she can't stand the antics of the Insane Bronies. Me, I don't like FiM, and I can't stand the Insane Bronies and their antics (keep this in mind, I don't think all bronies are bad, which is why I use "insane" in front of the word).
Link - Peter Linz
Beaker - David Rudman
Newsman - I honestly don't know but given recent social media uploads he seems to be in the show so maybe Bill, Peter, or possibly even Eric. Who knows though maybe Tyler Bunch or someone has an incredible Newsman under their sleeve.
As for Kermit, I think Matt will make a fine Kermit but he's not there yet, I also think both Steve and Jim where great as Kermit and I believe Matt will follow in the footsteps of both of them.
I agree. He is definitely improving.
Now that you mention it, Bill seems like a fair contender. When looking at Jim's version of the newsman, the voice was very similar to Waldorf, so if you wanted to stay consistent with the recasts, it would be Dave Goelz (but I know that won't be the case)
EDIT: I also just remembered that Beaker had an appearance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, so whoever performed him there has likely been cast as him for almost a year now. Can't make out who it it, though.
I think Matt makes a fine Kermit already, but all of Steve's fans are not there yet. JMO
A lot of them are, you just don't realize it yet.
On the subject of David Rudman as Beaker,
I could easily see that. But at the end of the day, it's really easy just to imitate him saying "MEEP MEEP MEEP MEEP MEEP" over and over.
Since he has done well with Guy Smiley I would not be to surprised if Eric took over The Newsman.
I just watched the interview video now, and I have to say, I'm impressed! To me, this is the closest we've gotten to Jim's Kermit since, well, Jim. Way to go, Matt!
It's totally possible, but that depends how...erm, accurate to his last portrayal Disney wants the character to be. IMO, Eric Jacobson as Guy Smiley was a drastic change in the character's voice. Obviously, now we've adjusted, but it was quite a shock to the senses when his new voice first debuted. I feel like it would be the same with the Newsman (no offense to Eric).
I dissagree.. He is just not bringing any personally to Kermit.
