It was mayhem in London on Monday (March 24) as the Muppets premiered their new film, "Muppets Most Wanted." Kermit, Miss Piggy and newcomer, Kermit look alike Constantine, arrived in one of the city's iconic black taxis. The famous characters posed for photos with their co-star, Ricky Gervais, who said Constantine was his new favorite Muppet. SOUNDBITE: Ricky Gervais saying (English): "But my new favorite Muppet is Constantine. The evil Russian frog. He's brilliant. Genuinely he's like a mate. I wish, I wish it was a real talking frog because he is amazing. I forget there's a human being hanging round. No, yeah it's great fun." "Muppets Most Wanted" opened in the U.S. last week, where it earned 17 million dollars.
