    I've met Hank Azaria.
    Hank Azaria was in Spamalot with Tim Curry.
    Tim Curry was in Muppet Treasure Island with the Muppet performers.

    So i came up with this lengthy one:
    I met Peter S. Beagle who wrote the last unicorn,
    Angela LAnsbury did a voice in Last unicorn and Anastasia
    Christopher Loyd did a voice for Anastasia and was in Suburban Commando
    Hulk Hogan was in Suburban commando and Muppets from Space
    Dave Goelz performed Gonzo in Muppets from Space and all other muppet productions including those with Jim Henson. Anyways I told this to my wife and then she pointed out that wouldn't be easier to just connect myself through Walter since My video was used in the CNN Geekout blog interview with Walter...Oh well I think I tried too hard on this one.

    He was on Animal Planet
    The Jim Henson Company did The Animal Show, which re-aired on Animal Planet
    Steve Whitmire is a puppeteer on the show

    She isn't really very famous, but I saw Katie Leigh perform live at Adventures in Odyssey's (it's an audio drama) twenty-fifth anniversary celebration a couple of months ago.

    Katie Leigh did the voice of Baby Rowlf on Muppet Babies.

    Adult Rowlf was, of course, performed by Jim Henson. And Jim also created Muppet Babies.

    I am friends with Armin Shimerman, (who played Quark the Ferengi barkeep on Deep Space Nine) who appeared as two different characters on Star Trek: Next Generation (An unnamed Ferengi and a Wedding Box that talks) with LeVar Burton, who played Geordi LaForge on ST: TNG
    LeVar Burton was the host of Reading Rainbow, where Kermit appeared (looking at a book called, "How to Pamper Your Pig"
    Kermit and Jim are personal friends.

    Wow--I'm closer than I thought!

    I saw Wicked in 2008, starring Carmen Cusack as Elphaba.
    Carmen Cusack was in the 2012 Off-Broadway production of Carrie: The Musical.
    Carrie is a novel by Stephen King.
    Stephen King also wrote It, which was adapted into a movie starring Tim Curry.
    Tim Curry was in Muppet Treasure Island, with the Muppets (duh).
    The Muppets, of course, were created by Jim Henson!
