Veteran TV and film actor Ed Asner sadly passed away earlier this month. Asner was best known for his work on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Elf, Up, and so many more memorable productions. Aside from a voice role in an episode of Dinosaurs, we were shocked that Asner never made an official appearance with the Muppets.
It seems that one of Asner’s final roles will be in Muppets Haunted Mansion. As announced today by Disney+, he’ll be making a special appearance, lending his iconic voice and pristine comic timing to the new Muppet special.
We’re so grateful that he was given this honor while he was still around, and it will absolutely make Muppets Haunted Mansion a more entertaining experience. Because that’s the magic of Ed Asner.
Muppets Haunted Mansion will premiere on Disney+ on October 8th!
