I really do miss Kevin but this Ryan guy seems to be doing an okay job. Thinking about Kevin leaving Sesame Street still makes me sad but I think I could get used to this guy, maybe he'll do other characters too.
I think this guy is doing an overall great Elmo. As for him doing other characters, something tells me he doesn't have the range to do Hoots the Owl, but I could be wrong. But, of course, it's WAY more important to recast Elmo right away.
That being said, just focusing on Elmo, I thought he sounded great. Energy was there, mannerisms were spot on, I think as far as Sesame Street goes I think Ryan will do spectacular. As for live appearances, let's face it, alot of the improv that made THAT Elmo were Kevin. So in that sense this will be an entirely new Elmo, and how Ryan may do with that remains to be seen...
Kevin was great at doing improv with Elmo, one wouldn't need to look any further than Youtube or the documentary "Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey" to see how great he was at thinking on his feet as the little red monster. So you bought up a good point, in indeed this Ryan fellow is casted as the new principal performer of Elmo, how he would do at that with interviews and such.
