Kermit the Frog Gets a New Voice Actor After 27 Years
By Jennifer Drysdale
Kermit the Frog will be sounding a little bit different moving forward.
Puppeteer Steve Whitmire, who has performed as Kermit for 27 years, will no longer be voicing the famous amphibian in various Muppets TV programs and films, a spokesperson for The Muppets Studio confirmed to NPR on Tuesday. Longtime show veteran Matt Vogel will take his place.
