It's a Very Merry Cast List!

 

Okay, a new movie means it's time for another round of the Muppet-fan's favorite sport, Spot the Performer. The new movie had lots of new recasts to replace the Frank Oz, Jim Henson and Richard Hunt characters. Also, Jerry Nelson was unable to come to Vancouver for the shooting, so he recorded the voice for most of his characters.

 

I posted an earlier draft of this with some Muppet grapevine guesses; this is now the updated, actual version with for-real inside info from Anonyfrog. Thanks very much to AF and all amphibians everywhere.
