Please note that the following is just speculation and wishful thinking about The Mupets new movie, and as far as I know has not been rumored beforehand. I've been thinking, about the upcoming Muppet movie (whatever they decide to call it); Could it be possible that the villian might have a Muppet sidekick (I know, anything is possible...)? It would be interesting. Though if this is going to be a "classic-style" Mupet movie the villian probably shouldn'y have a Muppet sidekick (Doc Hopper and Nicky Holiday didn't). But still, what if there is a Muppet workign for the villian? Seeing that this will be about the Muppets reuniting (though they've NEVER REALLY BEEN SEPERATED AT ALL!) I could see a classic character joining the villian. Don't know if J.P. Grosse would join somebody wanting to tear down his theater for oil, but it would be interesting if an existing obscure character were to join him. Maybe Mildred or Hilda, for being dropped after the first season (though I wonder if anybody would bother to train a new performer on how to perform Eren Ozker's characters). Or perhaps Angus McGonacle (as revenge for not getting his guest spot). Heck, this would be a good way to use Pepe. Seems like its rumored he's not in it (he's not in any of the publicity photos I've seen, and I think the review of the script said that he wasn't in the script). After being such a main character all these years (even without a consistient Muppet series) it would be a shame for Pepe to suddenly be dropped, especially since his performer is still an active part of the Muppet family. Would the sudden absense of Pepe be as shocking as the sudden absense of Rowlf and Scooter during most of the 1990s? Sure, any other major character could join the villian, but which character would be appropriate to work for the villian? Then again, considering Walter is supposed to be a Muppet fan, maybe the villian could have a sidekick who in the context of the movie used to be one of the Muppets but got fired and joined the villian, and was so obscure that nobody knows who he is. Or even a character who once auditioned for the Muppets but got rejected and would do anything to stop the Muppets. In a way this would also be a good way to use Uncle Deadley, though I don't know if he'd care about how known he is to the point of wanting to help the villian. I guess it would be too much to wish for Digit or Seymour to work for the villian (though that'd be an awesome surprise!). Clifford would make sense since he hosted Muppets Tonight and then more-or-less got dropped, but I don't expect Clifford to have any notable parts in this unless he's just in the background (unless Kevin Clash surprises us by participating). Please note that this was just a speculation/wish and is not rumored anywhere online.
