Liam Hemsworth told Men’s magazine in 2015 that, despite his popular image, “I’m a complete jerk—I’m not a tough guy at all.” So when he explained that his The Muppets episode might be his “most beloved of all the jobs I’ve ever done,” it really made sense.
In the episode, Gonzo uses a photo of Hemsworth on a dating profile and then asks the actor to attend his date with potential love interest Debbie. Hemsworth agrees thanks to the intervention of Rizzo and Pepe. However, the handsome actor actually hits on Debbie and leaves with her, eventually ending Gonzo’s date.
The actor said he enjoyed filming the episode because “it was so fun to watch the puppets and have a serious conversation with them.” He clarified that the puppeteers act like characters even when the takes are messed up, so interacting with the puppets felt natural. “I talk to them seriously, like people. And the whole time I was really trying not to laugh because it was so much fun.”
