Many of you are probably asking why Sean Connery is not in the latest Indiana Jones film. I'm going to tell you why right now. When he first came on set, I noticed that he looked old and bald. I don't want that sort of thing in my movie, so I called up my friends at the Jim Henson Company and had them craft a Muppet Sean Connery to play his role in the film. The voice would be provided by famed tv star Jaleel White of Family Matters. (He does a wonderful Connery impression.) Sadly, this amazing piece of puppet genius was destroyed in a rainstorm. So we decided to cut the Connery character from the film entirely. I still have the destroyed Muppet. I keep it in my kitchen to remind me that we are all mortal.
