Michael Stipe Plays Password With Muppets On Fallon

By Tom Breihan / November 17, 2011

On last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Michael Stipe came through. But for once, he wasn’t there to sing. He was for an interview with Fallon, where he talked about R.E.M.’s breakup and new greatest-hits album, and where he awkwardly saluted the Roots. But while he was on the show, he also stuck around to play the game show Password with Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy, and Martin Short. Along the way, he showed that he’s pretty bad at this whole game show thing. Kermit: “I think I need a dumber partner.” Watch it below.


My daughter, realizing what I was watching just now: “You not ‘posed to watch that movie, daddy! Those are for kids!”
