To call it an interview would be a misnomer of the highest order. Although the video below took place during a press junket for Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014), clearly asking any questions would only have served to impede Ricky Gervais (Dominic Badguy) and Constantine. The pair — who Gervais notes had not met prior to working on the film together — seem to have found themselves embroiled in a rather hot bromance.
In the hysterical video below, you can see Gervais and Constantine commandeering the interview as they dole out dead-on impressions and discuss the potential of a threequel in the form of Muppets Less Wanted, a buddy road trip time type of film with a very clearly thought out agenda. You’ll also soon see why that despite being a life-long fan of The Muppets, it’s master-thief Constantine that has stolen the heart of Gervais.
Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine — the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit — and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Golden Globe-, Emmy- and SAG Award®-winning actress and writer Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
