Ker­mit the Frog is get­ting a new voice. ABC News and The Hol­ly­wood Reporter re­port that Steve Whit­mire has left his role as the voice be­hind the iconic Mup­pet. Whit­mire has voiced the char­ac­ter since Mup­pets cre­ator Jim Hen­son’s death in 1990. A Mup­pets Stu­dio spokesper­son tells the out­lets that long­time Mup­pets per­former Matt Vo­gel will be tak­ing over the role. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for Dis­ney, which owns Mup­pets Stu­dio, didn’t com­ment Tues­day about the mo­ti­va­tion be­hind the move. In ad­di­tion to Ker­mit, Whit­mire had voiced grumpy critic Statler, Rizzo the Rat and other char­ac­ters for the Mup­pets.
