Right?! I was actually having a conversation with my computer while searching for photos. "Call him whatever you want, random photographer, I'm going to find these pictures." #shakefist# #haha#

Somehow I was expecting photos like these #rofl#


I thought all of his pictures were surprisingly low key until those ones popped up. #lol#

I loved hearing him talk about recording with Tina Fey and that she made him feel shy. #love3# And yeah, you can tell that he & James just work so well together. Long may it continue.

Den of Geek's Muppets Most Wanted review is very complimentary to Bret's songs.

If ever a film was worth it for the opening number, then Muppets Most Wanted is it. A glorious Bret McKenzie song that's up to the standard of anything in the last film - from which this film picks up directly - it gets the movie going with a few minutes of concentrated in-jokes, madness and sheer brilliance.

...

Muppets Most Wanted is no slouch after that outstanding beginning though (the closing number alone will bring tears of joy to anyone who's ever given two hoots about The Muppets).

...

As always in the land of good Muppets films, you've never too far away from a song and dance number, and Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie's return is very, very welcome. There are a couple of smashing songs in here (not least that opener), and even the weaker ones (if it's even fair to call them that) are entertaining, and serve purpose.

It's way too early to predict at this point, but Something So Right is, by far, the best thing Bret has written for The Muppets and it would be a damn shame if he didn't at least get a nomination for it. I definitely think Disney will be throwing a campaign behind it when awards season comes around again.

Also, Interrogation Song is a blast and I can't wait to see it in the movie. #excited#

Muppets Most Wanted: Which Muppet Are They?
Image
Bret McKenzie
Which Muppet Is He? Rowlf the Dog
Though he doesn't appear onscreen, the younger, cuter ( 8-) ) half of Flight of the Conchords is the resident musician in the rebooted Muppet franchise, providing the tunes for both The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted. He and the Piano Dog also share curly locks and a down-to-Earth sense of humor. However, Rowlf might want to consider going back to music school, since Bret's musical skills extend beyond the piano and he has an Oscar to boot.
