‘Downton Abbey” has one more superstar fan to add to its tally. This one is a big one, too. It turns out Miss Piggy loves to keep up with the goings on among the Crawley family and their staff.
When asked by the Radio Times what she and Kermit the Frog like to do on a might in, Piggy says, “I love ‘Downton Abbey.’ I like all the period costumes and the romance.” Kermit, on the other hand, chimes in, “You know what I like? I have to say, and people won’t expect this from me, I like those ‘Chucky’ films.” Who knew Kermit the Frog was such a horror movie buff?
When Piggy tries to steer the conversation back to “Downton Abbey,” as star Hugh Bonneville actually appears in “Muppets Most Wanted,” Kermit retorts, “You know I would love ‘Downton Abbey’ if Chucky were in it.” He seems to be going out of his way to be upsetting his favorite pig.
