  • When Jim Henson was putting together ideas for The Great Muppet Caper, he considered Redford for the role that would eventually become Nicky Holiday. "Some very good looking dashing leading man type to be Kermit's rival - Robt Redford? Chris Reeve? he's totally in love with Piggy - she treats him like dirt."[1]
