Frank Oz Won't Tell Stephen Colbert Where Muppets Come From

Frank Oz, voice of Miss Piggy and Yoda as well as the director of Little Shop of Horrors, What About Bob?, and tons more, made his Colbert Report debut last night and took the time to tell Stephen Colbert he's a fan of his show, particularly of Colbert's ritual of bowing and taking applause while introducing his guest.

Maybe Hollywood can cement a nice 25-year cycle in which all profitable ideas are remade on schedule with appropriately buzz-worthy and sexy young actors/actresses replacing the original stars. And Joey G-L sure loves to sing and [...]
