For his Emmy-winning performance as Roy Kent in Ted Lassoactor Brett Goldstein must embrace his grumpier side to play the sweet sourpuss, with the actor putting that grumpiness to the test with Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street. Despite his on-screen persona, Goldstein has not only shown how nice he is in person on numerous occasions, but he has also expressed his love for Sesame Street and the Muppets, which recently made him appear on the beloved program. You can watch his performance in the show below, which also features Elmo dressing up as Ted Lasso.
Sesame Street describes the clip like this: “The letter G stands for Games! What’s your favorite game to play with friends? There are all kinds of different games to play, like sports, board games, jumping rope and more! Elmo and Grover decide that they have the perfect game to play with their friend Brett Goldstein – hide and seek!”
In addition to Elmo dressing up as Ted Lasso, the segment features other references to the series, such as Oscar holding a sign that says “Scram” as opposed to the one in the series that says “Believe,” as well as faking the Roy Kent sings “he’s here, he’s there, he’s everywhere” but without the profanity.
This isn’t the first time Goldstein has dropped by the program, as a clip debuted in April 2022 where he taught Cookie Monster about the letter F. Considering how quick Roy Kent is to drop f-bombs on Ted Lassowas this a hilarious way for the artist to pay homage to the role in a way that adults would understand, while Goldstein emphasized on the program itself that one of his favorite f-words was “fariness.”
Before starring in the Apple TV+ series, Goldstein played his own version of The Muppet Christmas Carol, which he shortened to six minutes. His love of the holiday movie paid off last month when he was allowed to host a roundtable with the film’s “stars,” in celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary. During the experience, Goldstein even threw in a new take Pride and prejudice in which he would play the leading role together with Miss Piggy.
Season 3 of Ted Lasso is expected to be the last, likely to premiere on Apple TV+ later this year.
