Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? We’re All Puppets In Some Way, I Guess

The Muppets and Stars and Guest Stars and Cameo Stars and a Building and Horizontal Blinds

I saw the new Muppets movie around Over-Indulgence Day, and something about its cast struck me as interesting on a Coinkydink or Coinkydonk level.

It occurred to me that cameo star John Krasinski (better only? known as Jim Halpert from The Office) has connections to three of the ladies in the film.

Johnny Be Good

In The Office, John Krasinski’s character dated both Amy Adams and Rashida Jones’ characters, and in real life he’s married to Emily Blunt (she played Miss Piggy’s receptionist in Paris).

So is he in it because they’re all in it, or, no – it wouldn’t work the other way…

That’s crazy, right?  It’s at least as crazy as Stephanie Courtney being in the Cavemen TV show:

You see, she was in a show based on GEICO characters, then she'd later be a character in Progressive ads. Talk about job insurance!


Disney’s Muppets:

Fozzie, wait for it...

Disney’s Puppets:

...okay, go for it! "Wocka, wocka, wocka!"

(SIDENOTE: Isn’t it weird that Miss Piggy is wearing the same outfit?)

Why the non-Muppets are puppets:

  1. Whoopi Goldberg is one of the hosts on The View which is on ABC… which is owned by Disney.
  2. Rico Rodriguez, or Manny from Modern Family, and it’s on ABC (see above).
  3. Selena Gomez was on Wizards of Wizardly Place, which was on The Disney Channel.


The last two movies I saw in the theater featured this guy, and he’s only been in like six twelve films:
