When Disney produced The Muppets in 2011, it introduced a brand new character, Walter. Given Walter’s wide acceptance into the already established Muppet family — by both fans and Muppets alike, it only makes sense that the opportunity is seized in the sequel to introduce another new Muppet to the world (at least one, anyway).
In addition to the release of the new trailer for Muppets Most Wanted earlier today, Walt Disney Studios has also launched a small viral-type website for Badguy Management, found at BadguyTalent.com. The site provides a message from Badguy Management CEO, Dominic Badguy (portrayed by Ricky Gervais) and serves as an open call for finding new talent for Badguy (pronouned Bad-GEE — it’s French, afterall) to represent. The website also features a live phone number (213-293-5218) which doles out a small message from Badguy, but it’s not much to write home about to be blunt.

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. The new film will hit the big screen March 21, 2014.
A Twitter user by the name of @gavinthomas2015 has shared a couple of images from the set of Disney’s Muppets… Again with several Muppet-oriented websites including Tough Pigs. It’s not known at this time whether the release of the images was done with the blessings of Walt Disney Studios, but for the time being, please enjoy.
IMAGES REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF WALT DISNEY STUDIOS
The first image features the film’s villain and Kermit-double Constantine alongside Tina Fey as feisty prison guard Nadya.
Also sent along for the ride is this image of Gonzo in costume, seemingly taking a breather behind the camera.
