Bernie Brillstein - Muppet Mentor Dies

Bernie Brillstein, a true friend, mentor and agent of Muppet giant, Jim Henson has died of heart disease in Hollywood at the age of 77 this week. Although I never personally had the opportunity to meet this great Hollywood legend, Bernie spoke of Henson as a true genius of his time in a recent Talent Managers Awards ceremony. It's the story of a fascinating friendship which Jim Henson always talked about. You can watch a short interview with Bernie Brillstein here!
