Having voiced Sesame Street’s Big Bird for over 45 years, Caroll Spinney stars in the best Birdman parody.
Spoofing the black comedy Birdman – which stars Michael Keaton as a former superhero movie star attempting to get his career back on track and challenge to earn artistic authenticity – 81 year old Caroll Spinney has voiced kid’s favourite Big Bird for 45 years and stars in Sesame Street’s take on the film. The accompanying text reads “For your Oscar consideration: A veteran puppeteer, who plays an avian icon, battles his ego and attempts to find his way back to a certain furry and friendly street. This is ‘Big Birdman.'”.
