The fine folks at BleedingCool.com have tons of new pictures from Tuesday night's filming outside of The El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. The pictures offer our first glimpse at Uncle Deadly in all of his glory and we also get to see Chris Cooper, Rowlf (in an awesome hat), Dave Goelz, chickens, tons of other Muppeteers, and newly-confirmed cameo star Mila Kunis (Family Guy, That 70's Show, Black Swan). Here are some of the coolest pictures:

The folks over at BrainStormLive.com have an exclusive interview with Chris Cooper. In the interview he talks about his hip-hop number as Tex Richman and talks about how great the Muppeteers are at staying in character even after the cameras are off. However, the most notable part of this interview is the fact that Cooper confirms that he has a Muppet sidekick/henchman. He describes said Muppet as "a little dragon with florescent blue eyes." Which... to me, sounds quite a lot like this guy:
Of course, Cooper also refers to him as "a new Muppet" which could negate Deadly's involvement... but I'd be willing to bet that Cooper just isn't all that familiar with the Twiggy episode of The Muppet Show. My guess is that Uncle Deadly is going to be playing the bad guy's henchman--which, quite frankly, is awesome.
