He is here, he is there, he is every f—ing where along with Sesame Street.
Ted Lasso‘s Brett Goldstein featured opposite fellow grouch Oscar in a newly dropped video from the beloved children’s program and though Goldstein may not technically be in the role of Roy Kent, the roar he lets out when Big Bird speaks regarding the beautiful day they are having tells us he is channeling the ex-AFC Richmond captain-turned-assistant coach.
Goldstein took to Twitter and wrote “I met a kindred spirit the other day,” adding further “I told him we had a lot in common. He told me to scram.”
Goldstein dug into information in an ensuing Instagram post, disclosing that he will be seen in an episode premiering next year.
He wrote “I finally found my way to Sesame Street… and it was more wonderful than I could have imagined,” adding further “Everyone was so funny and brilliant and friendly and kind.
I managed to say hi to all the residents except Snuffleupagus who was sleeping…. Truly a beautiful cast and crew that fill that whole street with all the love you could wish for.”

Goldstein, who won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series last fall, has been very open about his admiration for all things Jim Henson. Previously, he told Esquire “That’s my ultimate goal, is work with the Muppets,” adding “I do that, then I’m dead”
Co-creator Confirmed Viewers Should Anticipate a Later Premiere Date
According to the exclusive report from TVLine, Ted Lasso‘s comeback is deferred because a later than regular filming begins.
Whereas the first and second season of the Apple TV plus comedy premiered in August and July, respectively, co-creator of the series Brendan Hunt (aka Coach Beard) said that audiences should expect a slightly delayed release date for the third season.
“We are starting later this year than in Season 2, that’s for sure,” Hunt said. “So I would be surprised if our delivery dates were the same.
That’s above my pay grade, I don’t know for sure, but I do have a vague understanding of the limits of this dimension we call time, and I would say it seems pretty unlikely that we would [premiere] as early this year.”
