Cole Jensen Talks Puppet Mastering for ‘Crash & Bernstein’

What’s it like to work with a puppet all day? “It’s insane!” says Disney kid Cole Jensen, who has the Disney XD show “Crash & Bernstein” debuting on Monday (10/8).

“But it’s not as hard as I thought. I was prepared for something hard, but the biggest thing is helping Tim stay out of the shot.” He’s referring to “Sesame Street” and “Muppets” performer Tim Lagasse, who performs the role of Crash, a puppet who comes to life after being put together in a “Build-A-Bestie” workshop by a boy suffering from too little male companionship in a house full of females. “They said to treat him like a normal human being and be completely natural. It’s really easy,” says Cole.

Cole, who’s been seen on such shows as “Mike & Molly” and “Victorious,” is in mid-production on the first season of “Crash & Bernstein” with 11 more episodes to shoot out of 21. But there’s talk of the order being increased to 26 episodes in this first year. That’s a pretty nice vote of confidence before the show even premieres.
