Kermit The Frog voice actor to quit after 27 years


Steve Whitmire, the voice of Kermit The Frog for as long as 27 years, is leaving the Muppets.

As indicated by Deadline, Whitmire will be replaced  by the puppeteer Matt Vogel in the role, having worked for the Jim Henson Company since the 90s.

No reason has been given for Whitmire’s takeoff, however he’s been working and voicing Kermit since the passing of the legendary  Henson, the frog’s inventor, in 1990, having begun on ‘The Muppet Show’ in 1978.
