Ventriloquism

Does this make for a relevant page? Supposedly, Jason Segel is writing a part for himself in the new Muppet movie where he would portray a ventriloquist, and his ventriloquist dummy is alive and interacts with the Muppets wihout him, so that could be added here eventually if it's true. Also, what category should this be located in? I was thinking either Muppet Character Types or Behind the Scenes (or both). --Justin 20:08, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't know about the Segel thing especially since it's all still rumors, but this is definitely a useful page (but I'd only put it in Behind the Scenes, since the dummies are already counted on Puppets). It could use more details so it's not just a gallery, but there's a lot of potential here (and I know there are quotes floating around from Jim Henson about ventriloquism, *and* from ventriloquists noting the influence of Henson, even though he wasn't a ventriloquist, as far as personality and making the character seem alive and independent from the performer and so on). Great idea, Justin! -- 21:50, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm trying to think now of something that might have been said that isn't already cited somewhere on the wiki. I might be able to find something. --Justin 02:07, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
In The World of Jim Henson, there is a clip with Jim Henson saying "I'm not a ventreloquist, and I don't try to hide the fact that, uh, my lips move...". I don't know what that clip was originally from, though. --Minor muppetz 03:16, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
