Kermit the Frog: I want 24 role

Kermit the Frog is hoping Kiefer Sutherland will drop out of the 24 movie, so he can star in it instead.

The legendary green puppet recently made his return to the big screen with his movie The Muppets. Kermit has enjoyed being back in front of a camera and has his sights set on landing further leading roles.

He wants to rival the careers of his favourite Hollywood actors and has expressed a particular interest in a big screen version of a popular US TV show.

"I'm fine with where I am in the showbiz hierarchy, but I think I could probably expand. I've consider going after some of those leading man roles. The ones Tom Cruise goes after or Harrison Ford," he told the March edition of Esquire.

"You know 24? I'm gonna try and get that, if Kiefer doesn't make it."

However, it appears Kermit may have left it too late.

It was recently reported that Kiefer will begin shooting the 24 movie this spring.

The Canadian star is famed for his role as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer in the TV series, which ended in 2010.

Talks of a 24 film have been in the pipeline for some time, but cameras are slated to start rolling around various locations in Europe this April.
