The White Stripes frontman, Jack White will be swapping his usual role as a rockstar and turning into a relationship councilor and sounding board for Muppet legend Kermit the Frog.
White is set to appear on ABC’s the Muppet Show’s season finale, and according to the star’s record label’s blog, White will help Kermit navigate his always tricky relationship with Miss Piggy.
On the singer’s Third Man Records Instagram account, it says: thirdmanrecordsofficial#JackWhite will appear on @themuppetsabc season finale Tuesday, March 1st to help his friend #Kermit with some #mattersoftheheart. Tune in to see if his efforts pay off… #themuppets #ThirdManRecords #misspiggy ?: ABC/Nicole Wilder
The Muppet Show’s executive producer Kristin Newman previously told Entertainment Weekly that Piggy is no longer painted as “the bad guy.” And as for her relationship with Kermit, “I wanted to [show] that even through (sic) they were broken up, they still have chemistry and they’re still drawn to each other.”
Jack White isn’t the only musician to feature on ABC’s rebooted Muppet Show. Here at RMW we posted a story about Dave Grohl’s drum-off with Animal last fall, and other stars like Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, Ingrid Michaelson, and Imagine Dragons have also made cameos on the show.
Will Jack White’s character finally rekindle and repair Kermit and Piggy’s long time love affair, or will White teach Kermit that Piggy needs more time to find herself? Mmmm, tune in and find out Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
